I got my Harry Potter book in the mail on Saturday at 1:30 and proceeded to have a 9-hour reading session until I passed out exhausted on my bed. I was so engrossed in the book that I couldn't be bothered to move to cook anything for myself so I ended up eating an box of Wheat Thins with red pepper hummus, a Wonka chocolate bar and an entire pitcher of iced tea. Jason was so nice to take the girls to visit his parents for the day so I had the whole house to myself while I immersed myself in my reading. I finished the book on Sunday around noon and I'm pretty close to saying that it was my favorite Potter book thus far- with Book #5 running a close second. When I got to around page 600 (where there is a major shocking development in the story), I actually yelled out loud because I could not contain myself. Now I'm absolutely bursting with excitement because i want to talk to somebody about what happened in the book but Jason hasn't read it yet so I feel like I'm going to explode. I actually went looking for some Harry Potter message boards online so I could at least read what other people were saying about the latest story and what their specualtons are for the final book. Now I just have to wait probably TWO YEARS to read how the whole series will end. Gah!

  1. Ack!! Okay, I am totally going to have to buy this book now. I was hoping I could hold out and borrow it from someone else but I don't think I can wait that long! How exciting--and I'm glad you got to have a day to read. Those days are great to have, especially with little ones in the house!
