Wow. I saw it with my own eyes last night…I was out about 11:30pm, and drove by one of our local Borders bookstores, and there was a party going on inside! Potter mania is alive and well…I tried to get a photo, but I only had my phonecam with me (shame!), and it was just too dark for it. But it was impressive nonetheless. I didn’t pre-order, but I expect I’ll buy it before too long…it’s a good series. And while it’s always sad when something you enjoy ends, I like it when an author is willing to end a series when the story is told, rather than grind it out forever for the very last dollar, destroying good will in the name of profit. Hopefully, that won’t happen here…we’ll see!
