everything i touch turns to rubbish
to point, I have gotten nearly no visitors to the harry potter challenge and it seems evident that it has not been posted elsewhere because wordpress gives me good stats on where clicks are coming from and they're all coming from my journal.

shoot. it's a good thing I'm chiefly doing this for myself. it would be nice, though, if once in awhile something I did just for myself turned into a smashing success. I realize it's a one in a billion shot but...

If I didn't dislike the Harry Potter books so much, I'd be up for it and I'd probably even promote your thing. I think it is a great idea and I'm sorry that it's not having success.

But what can I say, life royally sucks.

life cannot suck even a little bit because you are in it.

Aw... I feel like I've let you down. Was seriously tempted to do the challenge also, it'd give me an excuse to finally read them and know what Jen's going on about at times... ;)

It's not too late there, mate. Seriously, the first five chapters are shorter than the average fart.

Perhaps... perhaps...

I'll get Jen to grab me a copy and see how it goes?

Time to show you my WWKBD? bracelet. Yes, that's my "What Would Ken Barlow Do?"

Go to the library, of course.

You can do it! (read the books)

Haha! I'm going to use that somewhere, somehow...

Luckily Jen works in a bookshop and can get a loan of books so that'll be no problem.

So okay, dagnabit, I'll do it!

Yes! I knew you had it in you.

I shall be catching up as of tomorrow.

Jen is excited for me.

I wonder if I shall retain my sanity.

I seriously dislike the Potterverse, so it's not going to work with me, sorry :[ Gave it a try back when the first book was out. Nope. Not my thing. Couldn't identify with the characters and the situations not one little bit. Couldn't we have a Dresden Files marathon, instead? ;]

Wowsers. I didn't realize there was all this hate for harry out there.

I see the next Dresden Files book is coming out in April. Somehow doubt my chapter a day idea would work given how close that is... unless the first 8 books have sufficiently few chapters, or what not... how many chapters are in the first 8?

I don't hate HP, I just dislike it. If I hated it, I'd have an anti-HP icon or something ;]

As for Dresden Files, book 1 has 27 chapters and book 2 has 34, but they're pretty short chapters. (I have the series up to book 6, but I only have the first two volumes at my disposal right now.)

I'd like a total, please! When you can, of course. :)
prezzey From: prezzey Date: le 12 février 2007 19:00 (UTC) (Lien)
That'll probably be tomorrow, if you can wait ;]
