Hairy Potters

We will be delivering all orders of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" on Saturday, July 21st starting at 7:30 a.m. in the morning. We hope to have completed all scheduled deliveries by 7pm in the evening.


Please wait until 7:00 p.m. on Saturday before contacting customer service if you haven't received your book.

This was a public service announcement from Barnes & Noble.com.

Yes, I pre-ordered the last Harry Potter book. Though I do own all the others, I've never pre-ordered one before. In fact, the 1st 3 are in paperback (in a boxed set). BUT I am going on a trip that consists of many plane rides very soon. And yes, I admit it, I want to read the damn book. I know all 4 of us in our room at BlogHer will be reading it. Plus, the future bride that I will be with in CA is "saving it for her honeymoon" which means she'll be halfway through it when I get there 4 days before the wedding. (Who reads on their honeymoon anyway? Well I probably will, but I'm an uber-nerd.)

So yeah.

I still hope Harry dies, but I'm wicked like that. It's not that I hate him, it's just that the main character never dies. (I wanted the Seinfeld and Friends crews to die on their respective last episodes too, but of course they didn't.) I guess you all know how my book will end.

Oh my! You little sadist ;o)

I used to watch that HBO series, "Six Feet Under." In the last episode there was a dream sequence into the future of all the characters that showed how they all died. If Harry Potter disappoints you, try that.

I have every intention of being done before BlogHer, but I won't spoil anything!

I just realized it's only an hour flight to blogher. I might be done before then too.

I will be done with it by BlogHer also!

Today's the day! UPS says it's "in transit to final destination." That's me!
