All Pottered Out

We did it! Joseph and I both finished reading HP 7 at a ridiculously late hour last night (or should I say this morning?) but it was well worth the lost sleep. We both loved the last book in JK Rowling's brilliant series and were not disappointed with how she wrapped it all up. And we were also rather suprised with how many things we had guessed correctly about! Not all our hypothesizing was on the mark, but a lot was. We're feeling the let-down right now of it all being over and wish that it could continue through many more years, but all good things must come to an end I guess.Joseph snapped a picture of me with my HP tattoo on my arm (that we got at the Barnes and Noble party) while reading the book. Joseph was kind enough to let me read the book first since it was his Mother's Day gift to me, so he watched Sophie most of the day Saturday. It was too hot to be outside much, so at one point I left my cave to wander out and see where they were, and I found Sophie and daddy playing in one of Sophie's favorite places, the bath.

I finished it last night at about 330am. I just couldn't put it down! I doubt Holly will read it, she hasn't read any of them, I know, sad. I loved it!

Now I understand what you meant when you said you were doing the Harry Potter thing. I am sorry to admit that I haven't read any of the books. I'm sure I've missed out! I'll have to get on that one of these days. ;)
