Harry Potter book finished - NO SPOILERS

All I'm going to say is I loved the book and I thought she did a great job with the story.

Let me tell you all about my story of GETTING the book. I had pre-ordered on-line for general delivery to the house, figuring I would just read it when I got it. Then Chapters sent an e-mail saying they had decided to deliver all the books on the release day - anywhere between 9:00 - 6:00. I, of course, then decided that I had to read it right away, cause I knew what day I was getting it. As you all know, I had a dinner party Saturday night starting at 6:00. Any guesses of when the book FINALLY showed up? 5:46!!!!! I waited all f*cking day - and then only had 14 minutes to read. I was sure I wouldn't get it at all. I told the delivery dude when I opened the door "I take back all the mean things I've been thinking about you all day". He tried to make small talk about my last name - but I was like "dude - I only have 14 minutes!" He told me they had 7,000 copies that they delivered on Saturday!

I read for the 14 minutes but by the time my company left, I'm sad to say I was too drunk to focus on the letters. I then had to devote my entire day yesterday to the book. Needless to say, I didn't get my walk in yesterday. It was a sacrifice I had to make! HAHA!

Anyhow, I have lots to do today since I did nothing yesterday but read. Have a healthy day bloggers!


  1. Wow...I must check out these HP books...I haven't even seen one movie I'm afraid to admit!

  2. I'm with Carolyn, I've never seen the movies nor read the books, I'm afraid I will be throughly addicted as soon as I pick one up!

  3. The things we sacrifice for Harry Potter. :)
    Glad to hear that you liked it. And that you were able to get it this weekend.
