It had to be done. Who else is going to the midnight party?

Post up here about the book, what fun you had, anything about it :D

I'm leaving in a little bit to go to the party! YAY!

I bought it earlier today, it will be fun to snuggle down and read some later when I'm not playing ringmaster to the three ring circus.

I'm having it delivered in the morning. At the ripe old age of 23 I'm too tuckered out to go to the bookstore now:)

I did go for books 4-6 though... in three different cities:)

No midnight parties for me, but I checked out the spoilers communities so I would be prepared for what happens--my copy is shipping from the UK so I won't get it for at least a week. :/ I couldn't possibly wait another week to find out what happens...
An aside: Back in March, I came downstairs, complaining about not wanting to wait, and my husband thought I was talking about the baby, and I was talking about Harry Potter! The baby I can wait for, since he's still cooking. :)

Left bubs with my husband so I could drive into Perth to pick it up. I am on page 78 at the moment. Loving it so far!

It's intense!

Winnipeg's big bookstore had a huge Harry Potter party in our huge park/forest that I went to last night. It was impossible to actually *get* to any of the eventy stuff they had going on because there were so many people. It's okay that was mostly for the kids anyway:) We got in line for the books at 11 and it was a good thing; the lines stretched waaaaaaaay back by the time midnight rolled around. I managed to get my book and get out by 12:15:D

The bus ride home was amazing; I have never been on a bus that had every. single. person. reading. Now I'm locked in my swelteringly hot apartment, alone (I sent the family away to the inlaws;) reading. I should probably venture out and get a bit of fresh/hot air and take a break soon.

I laughed, I cried, I read it out loud in places. I need to re-read the last three chapters because I tore through them so fast, lol.

I feel an intense need to de-brief!

I didn't go to a release party, but had preordered my copy back in Feb. I finished it off this morning. It was funny, it was sad, all around a good end for a good series.

I know :( I need to figure something out that will work for everyone. A post a day was just too much, and I've been so busy - I just want it to be easy for everyone, but still active. I haven't figured out what would work! My original idea for this community was to post many posts all at once, once every two weeks. Then us mods don't have to worry about doing something once a day over here, besides commenting and such. I'm still unsure, though. I don't know if everyone will stay active enough to make it worthwhile. Hm.
