Less than one hour til Harry Potter 5 goes on sale! I’ve been trying to figure out the release schedule. I mean, it goes on sale here at 9:01 am, but most other places seem to get it at midnight. I think it’s been designed so nobody gets it before England. Therefore we get it at the same time, but the US will have to wait an extra six hours.
Update: I got it! I decided to pay a little extra and support our local bookstore (rather than fighting my way into Kmart to save an extra five bucks). There were about fifty people crammed in there, with a couple of the kids in costume. As you can see, I wore my Gryffindor stocking cap. The three kids who’d been waiting the longest got to open the first box at 9:01. Then we went in order of the tickets they handed out. We also got these sweet bags. The only problem is that Rodd won’t let me start reading it yet! We’ve got so much to do before we leave Tuesday that I just can’t. I know if I open it I won’t be able to put it down!
