2B Tuesday | Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Where you show a book that has been sitting on your shelf (or on your e-reader) just waiting to be read. It can be new or have been sitting there for a long time. Just show that book some love and let us know why you bought it or why it has been  sitting there -- originally by Laura's Adventures in Bookland.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling

Harry has been burdened with a dark, dangerous and seemingly impossible task: that of locating and destroying Voldemort's remaining Horcruxes. Never has Harry felt so alone, or faced a future so full of shadows. But Harry must somehow find within himself the strength to complete the task he has been given. He must leave the warmth, safety and companionship of The Burrow and follow without fear or hesitation the inexorable path laid out for him.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
This has been on my shelf for a couple of years now, I just can't bring myself to read it and finish the series - not because I don't want to and not because I don't want the series to end but for a reason I'm not even sure of myself. I keep getting about an eighth in to the book and then getting distracted, giving up for a year then reading that same section again and repeating. I will read this book eventually but for now I'm not unduly fussed about it as (blasphemy for some) Harry Potter isn't as important to me as it is to some people. Don't get me wrong the series is great but it's not my favourite.
