I was originally planning on waiting a bit before reading the new Harry Potter, but I hate spoilers of any kind (seriously, telling me you liked the book is considered a spoiler to me) I've decided that really, unless I want to start killing people, I'm going to have to read the book now.
I just got back from the midnight opening, in which I stood in line for about 40 minuted spent $100 and didn't actually get the new book. I instead got all of the old books, in soft cover (since I had always just read Andrea's copy, and she lent them all out) and decided to wait until this one comes out in soft cover so I can have a matching set. I'll just read Andrea's copy in the mean time.
Also, we went to see Transformers tonight before the book store. Awesome movie. Totally great :D
