My new read

Well, while everyone else is engrossed in the new Harry Potter I'm reading something else.
It's called "Chasing Fireflies".I've wanted to read it for awhile because I've heard wonderful things about it.
I got it last week and so far I'm on chapter 2. That sounds pretty lame but I only get a few minutes here and there to read so I'm actually doing pretty good! I'm liking it so far.
You know I tried to read one of the Harry Potter books once,hubby even read one aloud to the oldest 2 kids every night before bed.It was about 5 years ago but they still talk about it,I think that time was special for them.
I've seen the movies and I do enjoy them but the book is sooooo long,and to tell you the truth it's kind of hard to follow,there is SO much going on I just got lost in it all! I kept having to read and re-read and never seemed to make any progress.(that's probably just a defect in my brain somewhere I'm sure).
I personally know people who've read every one over and over again and they seem genuinely enthralled and entertained.I guess I've just never been into fantasy as far as books go.I would like to be able to say I read the newest HP and I might still try to one day, but I'm pretty sure I'll be holding out for the movie.(of course when it comes to DVD)
