That is true 34, and I think I was a bit harsh, but it was my opinion. What's the point of lying?
It's your opinion that OP should be forced to enjoy a book series to be with his girlfriend? Not that they aren't compatible on other levels, but just because OP didn't take an interest in ONE series? That's idiotic. It may be your opinion, but I'm allowed to disagree with it tastefully. Don't lie, just think over how silly that sounds.
You said "good on her" in your first comment. I'm quite sure you meant that it's good that she dumped OP by that comment, correct me if I'm wrong, but that's the only explanation I can think of. That's the part that I'm disagreeing on, nothing to do with whether the book is good or not. I haven't said one thing about my opinion on the series. I don't know how you came to the conclusion when I haven't commented on it once. I'm off to work. Good day.
In my opinion, Harry Potter is overrated. There are many other better books out there, it just got lucky.
How has this became a ydi. Harry Potter is the second worst thing to happen to literature next to Twlight!
What's up with all the YDIs, although I agree HP is somewhat entertaining having read the books, it's nowhere near being the pinnacle of literature or cinema, just because the books don't suck that bad it doesn't mean they should be as overrated and overhyped as they are, the only thing good about HP is that it makes little hipster kids realize that Twilight sucks twice as much.
OP- Hey, honey what's up? OP's Gf- We need to talk. OP- Sure. Gf- I feel like we're never on the same page anymore. OP- Are you still talking about me not liking Harry Potter? Gf- I'm sorry but, I just think I need to start a new chapter in my life. OP- *Logs on to FML*
291- she broke up with him because he had never read the books. Sorry, that's not a good reason to end things. It's not like she even gave him a chance to try reading them anyway. My boyfriend never read the books, but to make me happy, to have something to enjoy with me, he watched every. Single. Movie. More than once. Who says OP wouldn't have done that, given the chance? And even if he didn't, who cares? It shouldn't be a deal breaker.
Tell her you'll see the movies
I'm sorry, but some people actually have full time jobs and full time studies. Sometimes there simply is no time to read a Story. Hell, my significant other almost broke up with me because I have no time for him thanks to my studies. So yes, time is a very important issue..
I haven't read a good book in 3 years because of lack of time. Between kids, college, and a husband I'm lucky if I get to shower alone. I really do have no time. If I am going to read something i'm obviously going to pick a text book over something more interesting. Lack of time may sound like a "silly" reason not to read a good book but it's true in some cases.
#10 and #48, you guys are my heroes. Don't have time to read because of your kids? Get a book to read with your kids! Harry Potter, Oz, Tom Sawyer, Narnia, there's a large list you and your kids can enjoy together. Literature improves the mind because it makes you think, even if you think, "dang, this sucks." I read the Harry Potter books for the first time last year from August to October.
Just making a point, everyone is saying "7 500 page books, time, blah blah) ...as busy as people are, a book doesnt have to be finished in a day, a week, or even a month. What about 20 minutes a day? I am not saying that not having time is no excuse, because some people literally can not even spare 20 minutes...but most people that claim to not have time can spare at least 20 minutes a day, at some point or another...what about when taking a dump? Reading time right there. Point is, the length of the books and how many there are is irrelevant...a few pages, 20 minutes a day...that is all it takes, regardless of the books.
ObK well my sister has two ap classes she is in NHS and she's read all those dumb books && she loves reading. I DON'T like reading and I don't have ap classes and I'm not in NHS and there is no time even on a good solid no homework day to do something I want to have nothing to do with..( books!) wonder how the hell she does it!!!???
Just be like everyone else.........watch the movies and lie.
you haven't?! i've only read 7 books in my whole life and it was that series. you're missin out
Steve jobs is dead. We wont hear anything more about that idiot anymore. Seems like cancer finally did something right! :D Yay cancer!
I'm really into a little bit of everything, from computers to gaming consoles, I'm big video game fan but love building computers/doing LED mods and such, over locking CPUs, really anything. Anyways, I suggest the book because he was such a private person and I can't stand how the public judge him without knowing much about him, I personally not a fan of him anymore after reading the book, I'm a much larger Steve Wozniak fan, however. You'll have to read it yourself and find out why! :D
121- he contributed nothing technology wise, innovation wise, yes. He was nothing but a business man who made things look clean and easy to use, he was a mean but effective boss, however almost none of Apple's products were his ideas.. His engineers however, brilliant, brilliant people.
#55 How can you applaud a person's death, especially in the horrible way cancer makes your body degenerate slowly and painfully? He was no murderer, rapist, child abuser, ruthless dictator, nor some political leader responsible for the deaths of millions of civilians during wars and so-called "anti-terrorist attacks" - so despite of not being any of the aforementioned but because of all the apple fanboys, media coverage and actually quite advanced and renovating technologies Apple Inc brought to the world, this man deserved to die? Furthermore, from my experience, it's the people who have never tried out the Apple OS that feel such strong feelings of hate toward it. I feel for you when you rejoice at someone's death - and I do hope you do not find yourself in a situation where your loved ones leave you long before their time. Clearly, either you have not dealt with death before which makes you very lucky indeed but sadly, also incredibly lacking of any form of empathy for another person's feelings, or you are emotionally immature, or unable to express normal human emotion, which would make you some sort of sociopath. Though most importantly, you do not get to judge who is worthy of living and who isn't.
Being proud of having only ever read the Harry Potter books is like being proud of having only eaten hamburgers. They're certainly a fine food, nothing wrong with them. But think about how people would react if you told them you only ate hamburgers. And think about the effect that has on your health.
Could've been worse OP. It could've been the Twilight series. *shudders*
Tell her you were going to dump her for not watching every episode of My Little Pony. Her face will be satisfactory.
