I'm so excited...

I just got a call from the library. They had a drawing box for a free copy of the new HP book and I WON!!!!!

Yippeeeee! I was going to buy the book because I just couldn't stand to wait anymore, but we really can't afford it and I'd feel guilty the whole time...but now I can read guilt-free!

:dance:

Excellent! We hadn't reserved, so we hadn't planned on buying..... but DH called from work and said he could get a copy!! YAHOO!! So I pulled out my "fun" money and spent the $17 for it!!

The surprise and excitement on DD10's face is well worth that!! :) I Can't wait for him to get home and for her to get up!!!

Got mine by UPS at about noon. I'm already on page 250 after only a couple hours of straight reading. I pre-ordered it with my bn membership online. Only $18!

Ah we're all due some good luck - congrats!!

My daughter spent her the day celebrating her 18th bday while waiting for the book. She got home 1 am-ish and by 8:00 am, she was on page 400. I left for a meeting but by the time I got home at 2:00 pm, she was done. Not sure what time she finished but she told us she was so excited that she could hardly sign her name on the credit card receipt! She and her buddies dressed up and hung out at the bookstore after they got their bracelets. They were about 20th in line and daughter managed to snag an empty Potter book box again (got one last time). The daughter and friends are at the end of a journey too, their childhood is over as they are all 18 now.

I just finished the chapter "Godric's Hollow". But, I cheated, and I have already skimmed through it and checked the back of the book. Just couldn't wait!

We got up to chapter 12 last nite before I was just too tired to stay awake!! :) We read the last 6 chapters OUTLOUD -----

It was so funny.... my DS17 and DS19 both came in and sat down and listened to the reading..... DS19 thinks he might like to read the series now that he has gotten into it.. (If he does --- I will be blown away -- he's not a reader AT ALL!)

The amazing thing to me about this book is the fact that we just SAW the Order of the Phoenix ---- and I have all the voices fresh in my head..... I can just hear Vernon yelling at Harry and Petunia squealing..... :) I love it!! What a great thing it was to get to see the movie and then read this book! I wish I had done that BEFORE i had read the others....
