Twilight vs. Harry Potter debate in Seattle – watch!

Up at Seattle’s Central Library this weekend, there was quite the heated debate about the Twilight series vs. the Harry Potter series – namely, which one was better. And now the results: Harry Potter fans won the debate, with the audience voting 120 to 40 for the seven-book series about the boy wizard by J.K. Rowling, outpolling Stephanie Meyer’s four-book teen vampire series. Yeah, we kinda knew how that would turn out, wouldn’t we! Watch:

      They are just jealous of Twilight. I bet most people haven’t even read it. People make bad choices when they judge a book by its cover. The movie is worse and people judge that instead of the book. Twilight should win.

      ♥Twilight Lover, seriously, I’ve read the 4 twilight books,a nd they are all horrible, Meyer can’t writte a good book even If her life depended on it. Rowling created a whole new world and her characters are detailled, Meyer’s are just “perfect”, taht takes away from the storie.

      No doubt about it: Harry Potter is better. The books are the best I’ve read and are so well written. I can’t think of anything that you could compare with Harry Potter. And the movies… I LOVE DANIEL RADCLIFFE! He’s sooooooooooooooo pretty and an amazing actor… Harry Potter & Daniel Radcliffe all the way!

      I feel offended that a great work such as Harry Potter is being compared to something as awful as Twilight. Is there really any comparison? Harry Potter kicks Twilight’s a$$

      I have read both series multiple times and while i like them both, Harry Potter is just better. I do like the Twilight Saga, the books anyways, but Twilight the Movie SUCKED. New Moon was better but that could just attribute to sexy Taylor Lautner and his AMAZING abs. However the Harry Potter books make me laugh out loud (and make people question my sanity) not to mention the movies are phenomanal! So Twilight=good Harry Potter=Best
