Consuming the new (and last) Harry Potter Book [202/365]

    Newer Older

    At Crystal's request, I ordered Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows from Amazon, to be delivered Saturday morning, July 21st. As soon as the book arrived, Crystal began reading it nearly non-stop, and had most of it finished by midnight. She would have gone on to finish it in the early hours of the morning, but I persuaded her to put down the book and resume the next day with fresh eyes and a rested brain.

    Upon waking, she picked up the book again and went on to finish the whole thing an hour later.

    As to how the entire Harry Potter series ended, I was disappointed that my own theory didn't pan out. I was so SURE that Voldemort was going to declare to Harry that he is indeed his father, and urge him to join together so they could rule the galaxy as gay father and son. Oh, well.

      Very cool. She has the true look of a HP fan. I too am sad that the series is now over.

      The ending was good, but she could have left out the last chapter! Some things are just ment to be created in everyones individual imaginations!

      The picture is really great, captures the real excitement in reading, I sat like that myself:D

      With the red hair, Crystal looks a bit like she could be a Weasely, can I say that, it is TOTALLY a compliment. Ron is VERY CUTE and my absolute FAVORITE!

      I'm still making book 6 last. I'm stretching it out as long as possible and closing my ears to the ending of 7, which is sitting by my bedside table.

      Seen in your Photo-a-Day: 2007 set. (?)

      I'm just reading book 6 too. I'd seen all the movies but just decided to read the books in the last month or so.

      Crystal looks so rapt, its great.
