I may have to re-read them before the whole series becomes suddenly "trendy" due to the new film.
I have to admit--I'm reading the books now. I went out and bought the complete single-volume thing, because of this movie. They've been on my reading list since I was 16 (24 now) but never got around to it, and figured I better do it before I see the flick. I'm right smack in the middle of the 3rd book--it is AWESOME. I'll never look at towels the same way again.
