It's Over...

The end of an era. I just finished the last Harry Potter book.

Yes, we were there at midnight Friday to get our copy of "The Deathly Hallows" at the release party.

And ever since I have been in a magical trance, reading until my eyes blurred beyond comprehension. I don't know if I've ever read 600+ pages in a day and a half before.

A day and a half. Not counting time to get much-needed shopping done.

Not counting time to make meals.

Not counting laundry, dishes and taking-care-of-pets time.

But now it's over. I know what happens.

Oh don't worry, I won't divulge it here. All I can say is that JK pulled out all the stoppers; all the tricks in her bag, all the action, suspense, humor and tears.

And I am glad.

So glad to have experienced it all.

Thank you Ms Rowling. It was an incredible ride.

Wow! Your are incredible. I don't think I could read 600+ pages in less than 2 days. That is awesome.

I usually read my Harry Potters in a couple of days, but haven't had time to get properly stuck into book 7 yet :(

Maureen said...

Isn't it funny that the US book is over 700 pages. Do they have larger type or did we Canucks get the "Reader's Digest Abridged Edition"???

J/K, but it is weird that it varies so by country (and not just the cover art).

Yea! I finished mine in just under two days!

I dind't know Canada got the same covers as England. I was abit thrown when your picture looked different than my book.
