I know I'm old, but am I too old to start getting into Harry Potter? Everyone is so gung ho about the new film and we keep hearing the word hogwart. I thought that was some sort of monster... no? So a friend explained the entire series of books to me in 15 minutes. Harry's parents were killed by the evil guy and Harry is living with relatives and going to a SCHOOL called Hogwarts. OK, now I get it. Actually is sounds sort of interesting, but I'm wondering if I have to go back to the beginning and read all the books or can I start with this new one?
