And we’re off!

Started reading the new Harry Potter last night. I took Elizabeth’s advice and went to Target to buy it for pretty much half-price. The only problem was there there was one (ONE!) copy left, and there were two Harry Potter fans standing in front of it. My friend saw it first, so she got dibs. But when she discovered that the sleeve was torn on the front, she was a little heartbroken. Me being the ‘book sleeves are nonsense’ person that I am, I quickly struck a deal: She buys the torn one (she had a gift card, plus I thought she’d read it first and faster) and I buy a pretty one later…then we trade.

“Ok!” she says. It is only later that I discover she is still finishing up her re-read of the sixth book. Which means that the seventh would just have to wait until she was done. So OF COURSE I started reading it. I mean, come on!! The answers are all right there in front of me!! All I need do is read!!

I can’t say anything about the book. Not a thing. I can’t even say if I like it or not. This is because I have friends who haven’t read it and want to know NOTHING until they are able to see the words with their own eyes. Which is cool.

I’m just glad to know that there are certain people who have read it and finished it, so that when I’m done I can have someone to “OMG can you believe this happened and that happened?!” with.

  1. I get to start reading it this coming weekend. I can’t wait! 🙂 Thanks for not giving anything away.

  2. Jo – No problem! I hope you enjoy it (I am)!

  3. I’m done. You can talk to me when you are too.

  4. I’d love to have a lunch discussion over Harry Potter this week. I read it a week ago and I haven’t had a chance to say anything about to anyone!

  5. Marci & Becks – I’ve got a few more days to go with the reading (moved this weekend), so we should definitely do a late week lunch/gab session. 🙂
