I'm more LotR than Potter, not read one of the Potter books. The concept doesn't appeal to me. So make that 20,000 things I don't know about Harry Potter, other than the fact Rowling is rich enough to have people come over and make me read the series.
Eff, I kinda had that opinion on Potter as well, as I'm also a big Tolkien nut. However, my wife made me read the third book, and it was actually good enough that I read all the others twice. The stories, while on a kids level, and incredibly quick to read, still read well.
I read Harry Potter before I ever read any of the Lord of the Rings. LOTR was what geeks read, ya know? =pI actually love both Harry Potter and LOTR now. I like the way the Harry Potter books make me feel young again, I can get lost in the world in the same way I did when I read as a child. LOTR is a little bit more serious, though. =p
