but since it made me eat crow, i figured i would share it..
Although i read a fair bit, i stopped really reading fiction many many moons ago. Its something i often feel ill try to get back into when im a little older with more time (like playing golf), but right now it somehow always feels like fiction pieces give off less real information than their non-fiction counterparts..
To this end, i got through about 0.5 of one of the harry potter books, before deciding that it wasnt for me (but still stood in the queue at midnight for the final book because Deels has always been nuts about it..)
Anyway.. Deels pointed me this weekend towards JKRowlings commencement speech at Harvard:[J.K. Rowling Speaks at Harvard Commencement : Harvard Magazine]
The speech is well worth the few minutes it will take to read/watch/listen to, and gives me new respect for the author.. -sigh- maybe ill pick up the philosophers stone tonight after all..
