1:00 AM

I DID IT!
Waited in line at the local Borders for 5 hours until I got the seventh and final Harry Potter book.

8:00PM. I made it!


8:15 PM. Funny girl in front of me that loves Ron.


8:20 PM. She loooooooves Harry


8:26 PM. The line behind me, already out the door.


9:06 PM. Nice scrapbooking fan lady next to me, saves my spot and I go for a walk. I wonder how many people are in front of me?


9:07 PM. Oh crap, there are a lot of people here.


9:10 PM. Ok, at least I am not outside.


9:14PM. Playing with cardboard Harry.


9:15 PM. The people right in front of me. We are just waiting.


10:17PM. Sam and Amy are here. Sam doesn't want to go home, mom! Go Gryffindor!!


11:14 PM. The view from the floor.


11:14 PM. Nice journals. Love the colors. Lets see if I can get some cool pictures.

12:00 AM. Here we go. Standing in line.


12:36 AM. The very long and blurry road ahead.


1:00 AM. At exactly 1:00 AM, I made it to my car. The line outside was so long. People would wait for at least 3 more hours, but I was heading home. Before I started the car I checked the books last words. They are "All was ..." Ok, I won't spoil it for everyone else.


In the end it was worth it. I have the book.
  • It was exciting
  • It was fun- to see so many other fans that were as excited or more excited than me. Loved seeing the original costumes and the small children dressed like Harry. cute :)
  • It was intriguing-loved talking to random people and discussing our theories of what would happen.
  • It was exhausting-didn't plan ahead at all, didn't have dinner, didn't have water, didn't go to the bathroom and the last hour I had a bad case of allergies and the flu.
I started reading last night and was so desperate to know the end that I cheated. I read the end. I know what happens and now I can continue my reading.
