Would you believe me if I told you...

 ...that I haven't watched the classic or epic movies of our time ?

 Forrest Gump, Castaway, Saving Private Ryan, The Sixth Sense, Good Will Hunting, The Shawshank Redemption... and many more. 

...that I haven't had the chance to watch a complete season of good shows like Frasier, the Monk, Grey's Anatomy, Once Upon a Time, Law and Order.... Ok ! I need to stop. You get the picture right ? 

As I sit on the couch writing this post, I am also feeling guilty and sulking deep, deep, deep inside thinking how I might be coming across at this moment. 

At times, I ponder - Is it too late to watch those classics now ? Will it be as exciting for me to read those epic novels now like everyone found them back then? When I look back to understand why I missed some of these classics, there seem to be like a hundred reasons but none worth mentioning. Sigh ! 

So high time for a change, don't you think ? 

With the Harry Potter series, I ended up reading half of the books and watching the other half in movies. But last month, after taking a look at the very few books that I read in 2013 and inspired by Anisha on how she dealt with the Pottermania, I decided it was time to take things into hand. So I made a quick stop to the library and picked up the first book - 'Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone'. Once I started reading through the few first few chapters, I could not keep the book down. 

Is it just me or have others experienced the same situation ? Do you watch the movie/read the book as soon as it is released into the market ? 

Tell me, if you were in my place, what would the first thing that you would read or watch ?  

Yours' truly,
