    Harry Potter Book #5


    <span style="color:red;font-family:comic sans ms;font-size:small;">RealtorGal Jr. and I are off to Borders to pick up our reserved copy of the book. At 5 p.m. we lined up to receive our numbered ticket for all those who pre-ordered the book (they had our names on a list). We are #14. They will start calling us at about ten of midnight. She is dressed up as Harry Potter--it's so cute! A magician will entertain at 11. I want to be there early to get a parking space--then I think a cup of coffee will be in order! :D

    We are both very excited!</span>

    That is so exciting. I preordered at Walden Books. They open at 6:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. It's just as well. If I got it at midnight, I'd be up all night reading. I can't wait! 42

    <span style="color:navy;font-family:georgia;font-size:small;">12:20 a.m. and we just got back with our new treasure! I can't wait to start reading! Thank heaven we got there at 5 to get our ticket number because we were the first group called. Otherwise, we would probably be in line for AT LEAST another hour or so. </span>

    <span style="color:red;font-family:georgia;font-size:small;">Isn't it wonderful that the national obsession is not some insipid toy but a BOOK? How great is that!</span>

    RealtorGal-
    What a trooper for staying out so late and waiting in line for 7 hours! I could never do it, though I did ask my youngest son if he wanted to get the book when it first came out. He said and I quote "I would rather wait a couple of weeks till the lines die down to buy the book". Spoken like a true Kaplan.:lol:

    Let us know how she likes it.

    Oh, I did NOT wait in line for seven hours! Actually, we went at 5:00, waited 5 MINUTES, got our "boarding pass" (Gryffyndor #14) then went home. We came back at 9:00, found a parking space, left again to get pizza (across the street), came back at 10, read magazines until 11, watched a magic show until midnight (actually RG Jr. watched while I read Hillary's book), then picked up our book and were in the car by 12:10 a.m.

    Book


    My son read in the newspaper that the local book store was having a Potter Style Celebration beginning at `11pm last night, so off he and I went. It was actually very enjoyable. He and I had our new book in hand by 12:30 am, and off we raced home to fight over who gets to read it first. Only one little problem....it was a very expensive book considering on the way home I got a $115.00 fine for failing to come to a complete stop at a stop sign:( Heck it was the middle of the night and no one was around... or so I thought!

    The very worst part of all is I also lost to my son at Rock, Paper, Scissors to see who got to read first.

    $43.00 for the book, $115.00 for the traffic citation, the look on his face while reading the first pages... PRICELESS!

    Wow, canuck, that was a heck of a price to pay..........I got my book at 7:00 a.m. this morning, and have read the first two chapters. I am trying to pace myself and not sit down for four hours and read the whole thing........42

    Re: Book


    I was up at midnight, and for the fun of it I went to Borders and picked up my copy too. What was really neat was that the main street leading up to Borders was made to look like Diagon Alley, with all the shops re-named after the book names and chocolate frogs for sale. I really enjoyed those!
