Harry Potter...

Well it was a little sad this morning... I finally finished the newest and LAST Harry Potter book. I'm not going to go into any details incase there are others like me who didn't devour it in the first week it was released :)
I will say this, I very much enjoyed this book! The whole series really. It's sad to see it go, but I'm glad at the same time. I hope JK puts her talents into a new book or even another series. And I feel good about actually finishing another book! I'm on a roll now! I just finished one of the books my Sis got me about meeting Jesus again for the first time. Certainly not the same as a Harry Potter book :) I learned some things in the Jesus book, but not everything did I agree with. In fact, a small part of me is disappointed to learn some of the arguments agreed with my thoughts. I had hoped Borg would have set me straight, but instead he confirmed some of my fears. It's too late to go into any details here, so I won't bore you. But Thanks Sis! I look forward to tackling the next one. BUT that leads me to my next dilemma... which book to start next! I'm trying to break my habit of reading more than one book at a time. I've got a handful of others started, so I may go back and try to finish one of those, or I've got about 5 NEW books waiting for me to read. Ugh. So many books and not enought time to read them all.

finally, (sorry a bit of a random scatter brain post here)... Today's Quote on google really rings true with me... Wait a sec... It's not on google... maybe I saw it somewhere else?
Anyway, I'll try to remember it exactly... Education is whats left over after you've forgotten everything they taught you in school. - Albert Einstein.

UPDATE: V just reminded me it was over on her blog that I read the quote! Doh! She also posted a funny (well funny and sad at the same time sortta thing) video clip of the Daily Show. Go check it out. And here's the ACTUAL quote:
Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school. ~albert einstein

DOH! Sorry for not giving you props. (what does that mean anyway?) I just updated my blog though to give you proper credit. :)
If you take up the Harry Potter books, just remind yourself that they were written for kids, but they are a fun read. The first few books are not the 800 page Tomes that the later few books are - so that helps. (big type too).

Hey, I'm glad you liked the Borg book, too! I totally forgot about our Google Documents discussion. I better go check on that!
