So this little book came out at midnight on Friday, something called Harry Potter. Maybe you've heard of it? Since I didn't have to work it this year--and I'm still trying to weasel my way out of any reading promises I may have made in the mistaken belief that book seven would take a lot longer to come out*--I attended Hairspray instead of any HP parties and then went home, but I know many people didn't given the 8.3 million sold statistic being quoted by Scholastic.
How many of you bought a copy this weekend? Did you do so at a midnight party, the next day, or without a reservation at your local grocery store?
Have you finished it yet?
I want to hear your stories (not spoilers) on who gave the best party, who totally forgot your reservation (and how they handled that), and whether or not it was worth it. In return I'll see if I can get my hands on a picture of me dressed as a witch for our HP 6 event.
In unrelated news, I've joined Facebook and have been playing with its new Shelfari application to keep track of the books I've bought, received for free or read here at the Publishing Institute. I'm interested to hear how people think Shelfari measures up to LibraryThing.
