more than half the posts about potter are about the movies.
chabon's been in every what are we reading now post. (no comment on his successes selling/translating his works for the screen).
and it's been more or less the same thing in every post. a good number of us have read it, but for the most part it's a private experience that we're trying to get people clicking with, but we don't really need to discuss it to enjoy the prose. the biggest (and discussed in multiple thread) topic is how we all hate "the plot against america".
i mean look at that poetry post. i absolutely adore poetry, but as far as i can tell, i only share about 5% of my experience with people here, and that's not very likely to change. my top match on librarything is very clearly another political science major from my college a year above me who shared some seminars (i don't know him very well, but i went to a small school and i'm pretty sure), and that's how a lot of us go through our literary lives.
harry potter keeps getting posts here because people enjoy discussing it. can't wait to reference it. want to know what other people think. CARE ABOUT THE CHARACTERS. millions of people across a wide variety of demographics. maybe there's something there for us to think about.
