The first of The Deathly Hallows movies is releasing in November. Wouldn't it be a great time to re-read all the HP books? I wish I had the time. My friend Evalyn and her family like to read them aloud like reader's theater. They also have several versions; she likes the British one.
I finished Frankenstein and thoroughly enjoyed it--what a great monster Viktor created. Too bad the monster was rejected so painfully by society, he would have been a fabulous English teacher. He definitely needs a name though. I agree with one of my students, "Who would work on a creation for two years and not name it?"
