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 :-)
