Oerath: Not to be a dick, I don't have anything against them, but I don't think that Harry Potter counts as "classic."

shoegaze99: Oerath: Not to be a dick, I don't have anything against them, but I don't think that Harry Potter counts as "classic."Not yet, at least. Still too soon. But I wager in 30 or 40 years they'll be considered classic children's lit.
pute kisses like a man: doubt it... big blockbuster books rarely last the test of time.

Zombie Eater: I want to slip a knife into that tumblr owner's hand as they pat themselves on the back over how funny they seem to think they are.
cameroncrazy1984: Subby, I think you have a very loose definition of "classic" if you think Harry Potter is one of them.
shoegaze99: At this point, it's pretty clear that Harry Potter wasn't a passing fad or flash in the pan. It will unquestionably still be with us in a few decades.Hunger Games, 50 Shades, etc.? Yes, they are of their time. These things will fade. Harry Potter isn't and won't.
sjmcc13: Where do you place Twilight?
Dwight_Yeast: In a century or so, kids might stop reading Harry Potter, but it's going to take a long time for them to date.
shoegaze99: pute kisses like a man: doubt it... big blockbuster books rarely last the test of time.I could make a long, long list of books that sold big during their time and that have stood the test of time as popular and beloved works. While many of today's classics weren't big in their day, just as many were.
