How hard is it to put a question mark?
How hard is it to not be rude?
@Andrea thank you
@Sumaya i just added a question mark a minute ago
@Andrea Not putting a question mark is rude.
@Andrea I’m sure she knows what a question mark is. She just forgot or ignored it. And it’s rude to ignore.
@Sumaya I guess we have a different definition of rude. Agree to disagree.
Not using a question mark does not make her rude. If you read the sentence you already see it’s a question. So its not a big deal to have forgotten it. You are just starting problems. She ask a question. Answer it or just scroll past it.
I do not think that word means what you think it means.
@Kara thank you

Harry Potter!!! I love my books and I love my series but nothing compares to my love for Harry Potter…and to be honest it’s the series that introduced to how much I love series.
@Atrisha I love series, but normally shorter ones like trilogies. Harry Potter was so intimidating to be because it was so long and some of the later books were so large. Now that I’m almost halfway through though it’s not so bad.
@Allen I actually wasn’t intimidated. I do remember when I first read them, there was only five and I was a Junior in high school. Thankfully I just got the first 4 from my grandma and I had my mom buy me the 5th. And on to reading I went. I remember feeling so accomplished when I read both the 4th and 5th during my Spring Break and it was also a much better way for me to spend my Spring Break then what i would usually do (i was the party teen). But I felt so proud and couldn’t wait for the next one to come out. But since then I have reread the series so many times (at a much slower pace now) and I just love stories that can keep going. I do love trilogies as well though.
@Atrisha that’s such a great story! I was forbidden to read them by my grandmother when they first came out (even though my mom bought me the first book and some Harry Potter stuff for my bday/Christmas) because of it being witchcraft and wizardry. Out of respect for my grandmother I just never read them. I bought the books two years ago and have “fought” reading them until I started them at the end of September.
@Allen ironically my grandma bought me the first 4 and then shortly after changed her religion and regretted buying me them because they dealt with Witchcraft. But it was already too late. I already read them and loved them. But she would always ask if I threw them away and I always told her no, except for the last time she asked. I totally lied with a big grin on my face and told her I did (I wasn’t trying to hide that I was lying from her). But I’m glad I didn’t toss them out. She passed away a few years ago and those books bring back those memories. As much as she ended up not liking the idea, she got me hooked. But it is an incredible story. J.K. Rowling did an amazing job. The cast and crew for the movies also did an amazing job (though books are WAY better). Its a story that’s over 20 years and it still keeps going like it came out yesterday
@Atrisha that really is a cool story. The books, and yes, even the movies have stood the test of time; crossing generations. I think Harry Potter needs to be added to the Classics list!
@Allen I’m sure some day it will. I know if I ever have kids I’ll be sharing the story with them. I already have my 4 year old nephew saying he’s a Hufflepuff and he’s going to grow up to be a Wizard and he loves Dobby and hates Bellatrix (because I told him what happened to Dobby)! He still has yet to know it’s all Harry Potter yet, but I’m training him well!!!
Have a few lol. Too many to name. Anyone else have this issue?
So? Name one . . . all anybody here (speaking for myself) is trying to do really . . . is get some ideas of future series TBR. Don’t you think? . . . just one? 😉
@David lol. I will have to still go with Hannah Sweden mysteries by Joanne Fluke. And Im in the middle of James Patterson Women’s murder club
I read a couple of the Patterson Women’s books back a couple years ago . . .wasn’t highly excited about them. Perhaps i’ll go back to them . . . I still have a few on hand I haven’t read. But Joanne Fluke . . .now I’ve not heard of her before . . . this is why I asked you to “mention one” . . . I shall review some of these on GR’s . . .and decide upon putting them on my TBR . . . thank you! You wouldn’t believe how many good novels/tales I’ve found just by someone recommending them. You wouldn’t believe how many dogs i’ve read, using this same method. Hey? If chances are to be taken, a bloke will take his chances. 😉
David Louis O’Dell lol. I have a few. I can send some your way if you like. In fact i just finished one of Joanne Fluke books. And have the whole series. I have all the hallmark movies mystery books honestly. The cozy ones. And Nora Roberts the three sister island (about witches) is pretty good…most of Noras are. Lol see i have tons
@David and anything by @Summer or Gretchen Allen
Sort kindle reads that are fun and so many to choose from
I’m not fond of series. I get bored. Too many writers, too many stories out there to read to be tied down. 😉
My biggest problem, if a problem is to be found . . . is that series writers like to include the protaganist’s family as part (sometimes to an unbelievable portion) . . . It happens, I agree in life . . .but so very rarely . . . and to read these sort of mystery/series . . . you’d think it’s automatic . . . wife, children, friends etc. . . . are part of the culprits intentions . . . . Still, I enjoy them . . . you come to know the main character and watch them evolve . . . in life.
