Flashback Friday:: Harry edition

I got to see the fifth installment of the Harry Potter movies last night-and yep, I really liked it. As I stood outside with the group of friends discussing the movie and the upcoming book, we felt like a bunch of pre-teens waiting for their parents to come pick them up. I think the consensus is we are excited to read the final book, but sad that it is almost over. It has been a fun run. One that I don't know will ever be repeated. I mean how many books will be so good, cause so much excitement, that they shut down entire towns while they transform every store into a shop from Hogsmeade? What book will cause former non-reading kiddos into devouring 300+ page books?
I remember reading my first Harry book. Elizabeth had come back from Montana for Christmas and I was sitting on the couch of my parent's house waiting for her arrival...while reading "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone."
She walked in the door, and *gasp* I was in the middle of a chapter.
I looked up with a worried look on my face and she said "It's ok, finish your chapter first."
She understood
.
So now begins my wait for book seven. The final one. The countdown is on my computer 7 days 12 hours 46 minutes. And a feeble request to the universe out there that NO ONE talks about the book if they think they KNOW what happens. No spoilers. No hints. I am going to savor this last one to the best of my ability. Because it is the last.

i know, my big worry is that my kids won't let me read it and it will take me two weeks to finish and i will have to avoid tv/internet for those 2 weeks b/c of HP spoilers :-)
