I thought for sure they'd be sold out, with it being the last book and all. I went to the mall today, and walked by a bookstore and they were selling them 30% off, so I scooped up my copy... just in time for my long plane trip to Cabo! :)

I still need to see the movie, but I'm totally pumped for it. That's on my to-do list when I get back.

Oh yeah, OK I'm not proud to admit this but on Friday night me and my man did dinner and a movie and the movie ended late... so we stoppe by books a million to pick up a copy. hahaha I can't beleive I stood in line for it but we were right there and it only took about 15 minutes.... I guess there were people shouting out spoilers and crap before we got there. good thing cuz I would be pissed big time if someone ruined my harry potter experience. hehe I'm on chapter 16 and I'm so sad cuz it's so good and I don't want to finish it but i can't put it down... hahah

Wow, I would have been really pissed if I heard someone yelling spoilers! Good thing you missed that.

 

I'm trying to keep the book for the plane ride, but it's sooooo hard! lol. I started reading it last night, I'm about 100 pages in and trying to resist the urge to read it until Sunday! It's pure torture!

I've been dying to read the last book and JUST finally finished it this morning. Holy crap was that awesome. I was so afraid I'd be disappointed and I've been trying sooooo hard to avoid spoilers for months.... so worth the wait- awesome book.

I too love these books!

 

I was actually "lucky" enough to work at a book store during the release of boox 6 (the second last one). What an INSANE experience. It was busier than Christmas Eve. The store I worked at went all out though. We had a magician walking the aisles, a palm-reader set up in the travel section, and different craft stations set up to coordinate with the stores on Diagon Alley (wand making at Olivander's wand shop, free treats at The Leaky Cauldron, etc.), and everyone working was dressed up as a character from the book.

 

For the last book, I wasn't working at the store anymore, but I had to stop by to see what they had set up this time around. It was just as crazy, but definitely an experience worth being a part of...and yes, I waited around until midnight to pick up my copy. I then proceeded to read the book and was finished by two a.m the next day (Sunday) embarrest.gif

I love HP!!! I have done the midnight thing for the movies AND book each time. This year was the longest line though. I finished the book the evening I got it ..got it as 12: something and finished that evening around 7. Now I have sucked my FI and he is actually next to me on book number 4. Hahahah. I have to say I love the books much more than the movies though!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
