I can't wait! The bookstore downstairs from my apartment is having a party Friday night and ya know that I am going!


I'm getting all super excited. I predict I will sleep very poorly tonight.
And, for any other die hards like me, Bloomsbury will be streaming Rowling's midnight reading tomorrow. 4:00P.M. on the West Coast.


Oh, dear. Even though I pre-bought the book at my local bookstore a couple of days ago, I'd forgotten that midnight tomorrow was the witching hour.

Saw the movie this weekend and thought it was the best of the lot, although I'm sick of every scene in the last three movies being so relentlessly dark, and I use the word literally. My heart leaped with pleasure when the opening scene of the latest movie started off with an overhead shot of a sunny English field, but the Dementors arrived minutes later, and that was the last time we saw the sun for the entire movie.

Love the Wellfleet drive-in horn ovation story.

Sounds like a lot of fun, Lance. Wish I could say I were jealous, but as it happens my boss is in Cape Cod tonight so I'm very glad I'm not there as well.

iirc, didn't edmund wilson summer in wellfleet?

i'd love to know his reaction to harry potter, drive-in movie theaters, or both.

is anyone else with me?

Finally saw OOP film -- but it was at the IMax at Lincoln Square, complete with 3D glasses for the scenes at the end in the MoM.

Best film of the lot, mainly because Kloves was NOT the screenwriter and they had a Real Director. (Which they've have since the third film.)

But it is a film, not a filming of the book.

Shira has DH, but my office building won't be open until at least Thursday, so I suspect the time saved commuting will be Committed. (Though there is nothing more fun than carrying a 750 page book on the NYC subway--and noticing that you're Not The Only One.)
