A couple of comments on my "confession" entry got me thinking...
Besides never reading any Harry Potter books, I have also:
Never watched an episode of "American Idol." Seriously.
Never watched an episode of "The Sopranos," even though Steve Van Zandt (longtime E Street Band guitarist) is in the cast. I may check out the series on DVD. Or not.
Never watched any of the various "CSI" or "Law & Order" permutations.
Never read The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
Never ate escargot.
However, I have eaten duck tongue, duck feet and ox stomach.
p.s. I just received my copy of The Essential Harlan Ellison in the mail. It clocks in at just over 1000 pages. Wish me luck.
p.p.s. I can now cross off "Never read any Harlan Ellison."
