I haven't read in almost a week. I have been trying to think of what has caused this, and the only thing I can think of is that the book I am in the middle of still hasn't grasped me and I am not invested in the characters at all, and therefore I don't feel like picking it up to finish it. I know this is awful, because I just want to finish it and get it over with, so I am bribing myself with the Harry Potter Challenge.

See, I am the last person on Earth who hasn't read the Harry Potter books. I am very interested in them, particularly because of all the amazing people who are involved in HP-awesomeness. I mean, if the books can inspire people to write music about the wizarding world, then they have to be amazing, right? The reason I never read them as they were coming out is because my Mom read them, and throughout those years I was determined to like or enjoy anything that she did, because I was a bratty teenager. But those years have long since passed, and it is time that I relinquish my pride, suck it up, and just read the damn books!

So tonight I will finish Get Well Soon, and then I will read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. I may end up reading all the HP books at once if I enjoy it as much as I expect to. I definitely feel as if I've missed out on them, just from watching the Vlogbrothers and FiveAwesomeGirls. HP basically brought those 5 girls together, since it was the largest thing they had in common, and now they are all close friends as a result of their year long youtube challenge. John and Hank Green were so excited by the last book coming out, that Hank wrote the song "Accio Deathly Hallows," and he's a nearly 30 year old man. So really, I am ready to read these books.
