Harry Potter

I got the new book last night. Actually I got 2, one for me and one for DH I figured that each one of us wasn't going to want to wait for the other to finish the book so they could start it so I got 2 copies so we could each read it at the same time.

We sent to Madison last night and got our copies at RJ Julia. This is such a great book store I wish we lived closer to it as I enjoy going there so much. They did a great job last night. They had a big tent outside the back of the shop with a band playing, trivia, face painting, games and much more. We spent most of the time there just sitting on the side lines watching everyone. It was fun watching all the kids dressed up and running around.

Then right on midnight, after a countdown by everyone there (I'd say a good 200, if not more, people) they opened up the boxes and started passing out the books. I'm glad to say I'm not the only one who picked up 2 books. Heck some people had more!

I'm off to continue my reading. I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! I'll be back later with a scan of Gourmet Garden I got a little bit done this week. Enough to warrant a scan.

They had all kinds of parties around here as well. I waited until Sat. morning to go pick mine up, and when I was in line saw quite a few people getting multiple copies as well, looks like most people want their own copy as don't want to wait for a significant other, child, sibling, etc.. to finish one copy so they can then read it. Looking forward to seeing your updated picture of Garden, that one is so pretty.

I had mine in my hot little hand at 12:12 am! But we were not as smart as you and DH we only got one copy. But that's I still have never read book 1 yet!! he he! But at least now, I won't have to wait for each one to be released until moving onto the next one, I can just keep reading!
Have a great HP-ful weekend!

I'm glad you had a great time! I ended up until 3:30 last night reading. I started I am up to page 86. I almost read later but I thought I had better sleep since I am supposed to be recovering.
I can't wait to hear your reaction about the book.
