Literary Apologies

I have fallen to the Harry Potter mania and have bought the latest book. I have decided to read that instead of *gasp* Atlas Shrugged. Perhaps I don't need to apologize about this after all...

Stephan,

I think maybe you do need to apologize. After all, it can be objectively proven that Atlas Shrugged is higher art than Harry Potter.

I think you should apologize if you've never read Atlas Shrugged. I know you know its a work worth your time. But then, the randian argument is that you shouldn't read atlas shrugged-- because clearly Harry Potter is more along the lines of what you want to do. So, Ayn Rand says: Don't apologize!
