Harry Potter & The Half-Crazed Reader

Juannie and I may need to bust out a timer - like this family - so we don't fight over Half-Blood Prince once I pick it up on Saturday afternoon. Saturday afternoon? Yes, I must wait until after the baby shower is over to pick up my longed for copy of the book.

My original plan once I got my paws on it was to read like a mental patient for the rest of the weekend. With any luck, I could possibly finish the book before I had to go to work on Monday morning. But another family event has now been scheduled for Sunday afternoon and it would be too rude, even for an obsessive reader like me, to ignore family members and read the whole time.

I will be jonesing for Harry all weekend. I will be distracted during conversations with aunts, uncles and cousins. I will be counting the minutes until I can return to the book. Juannie might just have to buy his own copy.

I'm hosting my parent's 30th wedding anniversary barbecue on Saturday. I still can't believe I scheduled it for that day. So I'm going to have to somehow make time during all of the running around I have to do on Saturday to pick up my book and then it will have sit and wait for me until after the party. I'm almost thinking I might end up staying up all night on Saturday just so that I can get started reading. Very exciting!

It's nice your putting your parents first:) I don't think any of us HP fans will be sleeping saturday night.

All I need is a couch, a blanket and the book. I'll be set for my hot Saturday night!

I knew 07/16 was an important date when I was trying to pick the date of the shower two months ago but I just couldn't remember why. Right after my cousin gleefully agreed on that date, it hit me. Too late to change it then.

Good luck with the barbecue! We'll have to compare times on actually starting the book.

Jim doesn't read them, so I go first. Then the guys can fight over it at their leisure...heh.

Fackin' Blood Relations!
Aw, poor girlie. Well, just take extra long bathroom breaks - tell people you're a martyr to your sensitive bladder.

Me? I'll be high-tailing it to Shopper's Drug Mart early Saturday morning and getting my FREE copy (you collect Shopper's points - I am entitled to 75 bucks o' free stuff. I've been holding onto it just for this). I plan on savoring it, though. I don't want to speed read it but to thoroughly enjoy it. So I probably won't be much ahead of you. No need to give me that look! ;0

I couldn't get Jim to read any of it - now if Rowling had put lots of stuff about the two world wars, then maybe...

Re: Fackin' Blood Relations!
Free! You are a thrifty one. And isn't cool to think that millions of people will be hunkered down with the same book all over the world on Saturday night?
