The great day has finally arrived. I doubt I’ll be getting much sleep tonight….
A great day indeed, Ben. I haven't been this excited since boxing day 2003 when "Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" was first screened in Australian cinemas!
G'day Doctor Dan -- how nice to hear from you! Yes, it's damn good stuff. And in this instance, Australia is truly "the lucky country" -- while our English friends have to stay up till midnight to get a copy, here we can wake up around 8 am, enjoy a quiet breakfast and coffee, and head lazily down to the bookstore for the 9.00 release. Incidentally, while we were lining up for a copy at Angus & Robertson this morning, our clever Felicity won the prize for her picture of an owl in a witch's hat -- so, thanks to this prize, our house is now covered in little Harry Potter stickers as well....
My oldest daughter, Molly, will receive Deathly Hollows for her birthday today. (Her 12th b-day is actually Wed., the 25th, but we will be at the summer conference of the Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America.) UPS delivered it on-time. Now, I just have to be patient until she is finished--same as with earlier volumes.Oh, I took one of those internet quiz things (see my blog) and had the disturbing revelation that my "Potter alter ego" is Ginny Weasley. It could be worse. I could have been pegged as Umbridge, I guess. :-)
My wife went out at midnight on Friday and bought two copies. One for her and one for me. Each could not wait while the other read - the sin of impatience.
