Subject: RE: Harry Pottering
How healthy is this really for literature? It's become utterly mad. okay they might be fun books (i haven't cared to read them, personally), but as they do with music and film, the media have raised whats essentially just a kids book up to such a pedestal that it's breaking records everywhere and being constantly rated as the pinnacle of literature. I think all 4 harry potter books were recently voted in the BBC's top 100 books of all time (correct me if im wrong), which is just pretty terrifying. mind you, so is the idea of a top 100 list.

oh well eh. maybe im too cynical!
