Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
No spoilers here. We haven't finished the book yet and we wouldn't be that cruel. The book arrived yesterday morning at 9:45am. (See the significance? Platform 9 3/4...Quite the sign, eh?) We shoved a freshly baked scone at the U.P.S. delivery guy, who was carrying a second H.P. book to deliver to someone else in the building, gobbled down our breakfast, and hit the bed, where we stayed all day reading the book, taking intermittent breaks for food and water replenishment. We quit shortly before midnight over halfway through the book. Ron and Harry had just gone into -- (I'm just kidding, I'm not going to say what happens.) This morning was more of the same. With any luck, we'll be able to finish the remaining 200+ pages tonight when I get off work after we grab some Chinese takeout from Wong's King. I think it's Darr's turn to read next, we alternate chapters, and if memory serves Hagrid and Voldemort were dueling -- (Seriously, where's the trust?) I can't wait until our lil' Resident Alien is into books so we can make a big deal out of the book's arrival and spend the day, or perhaps more realistically an hour or two, reading together. Hope all the other Potter fans are enjoying their books as much as we are.
