I love Harry Potter, it transcends age, gender and race and is supremely well written in my opinion. It never takes me long to read a new HP and I usually read them at least twice.
Some people are very anti JK, whether it's jealousy or their opinion that if something becomes very popular it's not art or worthy any more. Anyway they are great books, well written and have turned alot of kids(And adults) on to reading and hopefully writing themselves.

I don't think it's out of the realm of reason to have a thread devoted to the most popular literary series of our time. I'm a huge fan, as is my entire family. Honestly, the way these books transcend age and nationality just speaks to the fact that compelling literature is global, which should make everyone who reads and/or writes happy.

One thing that's great about these books is that Rowling took an idea that has been used by other authors (a character attending a wizarding school) and ran with it. She was extremely creative and made something many can relate to. 50 authors can have the same idea, but if none of them make an attractive story, then they don't deserve a lot of credit.

I love the books...I'm absolutely mad about them. Is it possible to join all existing Harry Potter threads into one?

That's clearly not the only reason people love the books, but that is certainly a plus point. Surely the best books are easy to read while still entertaining the reader to the point he/she can't wait for the next installment. JK is a master of her craft, and her craft is intelligent easy read children's books which also appeal to adults, simple as.
Max, Go and read War and Peace and then tell me which you prefer.

Rowlings is very good at detail and does her research, but I find her to be a mediocre writer.
Sorry, I just had to say it.
