[E] Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
I am an average fan of Harry Potter. when i found this book on one of the bookshelves in Popular Bookstore, with a discounted price tag RM109.00 to RM49.90 (oh yes, i am a cheapskate) i thought of buying it. why? it is 2-inch thick with hardcovers and the most important part is, this is the last written episode of Harry Potter. i don’t mind if i am the last person on the earth to have it (cause it has been published in July 2007), i just want to read it to know what happen to Harry Potter as well as to improve my English. full stop.
so i bought it. reading the first chapter was challenging enough. 5-6 words in every single page are new to me. i could just ignore and don’t even bother to find out the meanings of those new words and continue reading. i could pretend i knew them and assume the meaning by myself. but i don’t want to. i want to improve my English.
i don’t have any dictionary around my rent house so i used online dictionary. it is not practical to open my PC everytime i open my book. i wanted an electronic dictionary, but it was damn expensive! (again, me being cheapskate) so, i searched for mobile dictionary and got a free version from the GetJar.com.
when i read, my left hand flips the pages while my right hand holding my handphone with the mobile dictionary running on it. some words are not available on the application, but what could i expect from a free version, rite?
i am currently on the fourth chapter now and then i jumped to the last chapter. LOL.
Harry Potter is happily married with Ginny Weasly and they have Albus Severus, James Sirius and Lily Luna as their children. the end.
