Well spoken...and at least you did not have a conniption at the "suggestion" of an insult of the ALL MIGHTY HP... I reckon there will be riots on the streets of Europe in 500 years time if anyone tries to purposely delete a copy of a HP novel.... Armageddon is coming then..

Congrats on your incoming Daughter.....

Alas I forget many people like to be purely entertained when reading.... Pulp Fiction it is..... Twilight Wouldn't touch it with a 3 meter barge pole....

I'll stick to the boring JM Coetzee and Yeats, and Bulgakov....etc....

Frankly I, and she at least espouses this, worry about books like that seeing as how I am going to have a daughter in the next few weeks. I personally don't think it is a particularly enriching reading experience or good that the take away message from the books is that obsessive personalities and stalking relationships are both normal, good and to be wanted.

I really don't want my daughter reading books like that until she is very much old enough to parse out the horse pucky from it all.

As the books would have you believe, you only truely love someone if you are willing to stalk them and conversly someone only really loves you if they stalk you.
