I don't know how many of you have read Harry Potter, but I love them. They are such a great idea, terrificly written, and funny. The characters are real and they move you. Wow, I pretty much just described Twilight didn't I? :) They're both best sellers, they're both being made into movies. They're both blockbuster hits (Twilight most likely). I think what makes the major difference between these amazing stories is the author. I won't lie and say I know a lot about J. K.

OH MY GOD!!! I got this news from a friend telling me to go to stepheniemeyer.com so I did and this is for all of those who don't know yet:
Movie News Flash!
So, many of you have heard that the release of the sixth Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, has been moved from this Thanksgiving to next summer. First and foremost, please know that this schedule change has absolutely nothing to do with Twilight, me, or Summit Films (so enough with the imdb death wishes, okay?).
