...and I just got home with HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS!!!
I went to the release party with my 7 year old son (who went to bed at 7pm Friday evening and was awaken by mommy dearest at 10:30pm - in case my parenting skills are in question!) and what a cool thing to be apart of.
There were all sorts of displays, trivia games, tea leaf reading, wand making, costume contest, etc... The lines for both pre-ordered and those of us who didn't, were extraordinarily long, but once we did a big loud countdown to midnight, followed by hoots, hollers & hoorahs, the line moved very quickly. The book was in our hands by 12:17am.
If you can picture, the lines went through the entire store, from front to back, snaked around every book shelf and out the door. Hundreds, possible a good thousand people were in our local Chapters.
I don't plan on reading all night... but I'm glad I was part of the final HP release excitement. And glad I could share it with my darling 'Light'.
