Harry Potter

Well... it's official another Harry Potter book. Just in time for the Series of Unfortunate Events movie. Oh, and stock prices for publishers and booksellers are allready on the rise. I don't have any personal issue with Harry or the Unfortunate Events series but here is my problem. Part of the reason everyone was so excited about these books was because they were getting children to read again in an age of video games and other shit where many of our students read below their grade level. Now instead of keeping kids reading they are making movies out of them. Most kids are just going to go see the movie. Oh I know it's all about the money though. Fuck the kids who cares of they read we can make money on a movie and all the action figures and the movie picture book and... and... and...

Fuck that let the kids read.
