I've been on a "quick light read" phase and thus the last book(s) I read are the entire Harry Potter series. I finally managed a goal I set for myself when the entire series was finished - I read all 7 of them in succession. It only took 2 wks. I'll give the series an 8 of 10, because, really, they're just so damn fun to read. I think that Rowling has gotten some flak for her writing style, but having accidentally read some of a fan-fic imagining of the 7th book... yeah, her stuff is about 1 million times better. Granted, it was fan-fic... but it puts some perspective on the issue.
