What a way to spend a weekend...

I know it's been several days without a post, but this book is the reason why. I went into work at 1:00 friday afternoon, to make sure my store was ready for the party we had to celebrate the midnight release of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows". Instead of closing at 9:00 p.m. like we usually do, we stayed open and our party got started at 9:30.

We had a huge crowd that enjoyed our magician, The Amazing Ryan, took part in a "name that spell" contest, and showed their Potter devotion in our costume contest.

Being a fan of the series, I was really looking forward to the release of this book. Unfortunately, between working until 2:30 Saturday morning, sleeping (a little), and working again on Saturday and Sunday, I read the book a bit slower than I would have liked. So, I'm paying the price today, since I was up until 3:30 this morning finishing the book.

With my potterific weekend firmly behind me, it's time to get back into a somewhat normal routine. Check back in a week or so, and I'll post a short review of the book. I don't want to do it yet, and get hollered at for possibly giving anything away. Not wanting to learn anything ahead of time myself, I've deliberately stayed off the interweb. No spoilers for/from me, thanks.

If you were one of the millions who purchased a copy, I hope your weekend was as good as mine.

3:30 am? Again? Jeez, you're going to need to catch up on your sleep one of these days! I'm not quite half way through.

It certainly lived up to the hype in my opinion. I literally can't wait to read it again and am so eager to one day share the wonderful story and lessons it has with Peanut.
