Truman accompanied me to the festivities at our local Borders bookstore last night in celebration of the release of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” (for those of you who’ve been living under a rock or in an experimental underground Bio-Dome for the last year or so, that’s the long-awaited final book in the record-breakingly popular series). Most bookstores in town were hosting parties replete with games and trivia contests and spelling bees, crafts and photo ops and themed goodies. I could not resist asking for a photo with these three little wizards, who stole the show at the costume contest.
I have come to the conclusion that my patronus, were I to conjure one, would be a decidedly ungraceful silver Labrador puppy, in full butt-tuck-and-run shuffle mode.
The final book is 784 pages long. Needless to say, Truman and I will be too busy to blog for a few days. Happy reading, fellow Potter fans!
