the wizard & the fish

ladies & gentlemen of the fish, i am in shock.

less than an hour ago i finished Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince. "devoured" is probably appropriate in this case. remember that inner eleven-year-old i've mentioned recently? she's hugging a pillow right now, kind of staring into space.
my inner adult is babbling all sorts of intellectual mishmash about best children's fantasy series ever, amazing grasp of human dynamics & elements of reality hitherto unseen in escapist literature. but what do i know?

excuse me, i have to go hug a pillow for awhile.

10 little fish:

Congrats! Its been a long, long while since I read a book in a day. Maybe when Anansi Boys comes out I'll forgo sleep if need be.

U.S. book sales over the weekend topped the gross of both of the 2 biggest movies of the weekend...Charlie and Wedding Crashers. While not a fan of the Potter books myself (don't really have an opinion cuz I haven't read any of them) I believe that anything that encourages people, especially kids, to read is a great thing!

damn damn damn, jenn i decided i wasn't allowed to talk to you until i'd seen Depp prance around with fake teeth, would you forgive me if i said i haven't bought the book yet?

I work in a bookshop, and have been taking great joy in telling people who buy this that Harry turns evil, kills his closet friends, and joins forces with He Who Cannot Be Named (because I can't spell it).

I'm a sad little book monkey.

mysfit: i forgive that you haven't bought the book yet, because there's a fair chance that everyone i know will finish it over the next couple weeks, & i can bring you my copy.
