    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)

                  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!
