Last night in the rain, cold and dark I went to get my copy of the lastest and last Harry Potter book!
We were met by a witch at the book store, asked if we had our ticket, then we joined the queue. We queued, we sang the Hogwarts Song, we queued, we swore an oath not to reveal the ending, we queued ... then we counted down ..... it was 12.01am on the 21st July 2007!
We queued excitedly ... then finally .... it was handed over to me in a bright orange paper bag with red ribbon handles!!!!!!

(I'm afraid that's it for today, as I have a book to read don't you know!)


  1. Oh Alison lucky you! Enjoy your Harry Potter...I'm off to buy a copy.

  5. Have you finished it yet?

  6. No, I haven't finished it yet! I like to take my time, as I like to savour it!
    I am a very quick reader naturally, but with my Harry Potter books I love them so much that I savour them!
    I read only a chapter or two at a time and then put it down and think about everything that has happened and what will happen!
    I'm like someone who likes to take their time and savour chocolate, (incidentally I like to do this too!!!)
    Does this sound crazy?!?
    I could never read it all in one night, that would just spoil the fun for me!!!

  7. I have linked to you...I hope that is ok!
    Happy reading.
