  2. UPS actually delivered mine on a Saturday, but didn't get it until today. I sat down and read it in 5 hours. Was better than the last 2.

  3. You know, I've been reading your blog for a while. I read it because I thought you were funny, smart, surprising, and super cool. Until now.

    Just kidding! As a bonafide nerd, I now worship the ground you walk on (get it? She Walks... heh).

  6. If you like Harry... maybe you'd like CAPTIVATING (Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman's Soul), by John and Stasi Eldredge.... :) It is a page turner, too!

  7. Took me about 5 hours to read. I am the only one who cried? I mean, really cried out loud?

  8. Amberance...
    My daughter, the first one in the household to finish it, is walking around doing that choking, sobbing thing, usually reserved for a terrible, terrible tragedy. No one is going near her, for fear she will accidently tell us WHY she's crying before we've had our turn at it. Poor little thing is suffering in solitude...
    Nice to know she's not alone.

  11. As soon as I can pry it out of that 11 year old's hands it's MY TURN!

    Before I became utterly house-poor (it's the Bay Area, you know...) we bought two or three copies of the new releases so we could all read them. Now I have to be patient. Not my strong suit.

  12. Wouldn't "flighty temptress" be a good title for a blog? Or a rock band name?

  13. You are not the only one. I cried, too. I have now cried out loud for 3 books: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, The Green Mile, and The Education of Little Tree.

    This Harry Potter is the best of all of them.

  14. I cried, but then, I cry at the drop of a hat. Seriously, drop a hat, I'll cry. I cried at the end of a book about Charles Darwin! And it's not like I was surprised by the fact that he died at the end, it was kind of a given....

  15. (a different megan)

    Oh my gosh, I totally loved that line. Dumbledore is just so damned cool in this book.

    And yes, I was actually cool enough to go to a MIDNIGHT release party (in full costume). And I was choking back sobs in the back room at work as I read the last 150 pages over an extended lunch break, so you guys are not alone. ;-)

  16. I finished it at 4AM. 4AM folks. Sobbing. I hope no one at work asks about my puffy red eyes. They just wouldn't understand.

  17. So far, The Giving Tree is the only book I can't get halfway through without bursting into tears (I've tried many many times).

    But I'm just beginning HP....
