Hurried Harry

Posted on: 21 July, 07

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows has been in J’s hands for 1 hour and 15 minutes.  He is on page 360.  No human should be able to read that fast.  It must be good because he is laughing out loud at parts.  Of course, C makes him stop reading and explain what is so funny.  If J were not stopping to give us a running commentary of the book, he might be done by now.  Ok, maybe not quite done, but is absolutely freakish that he can read that fast and comprehend it all.

We went to a Potter party at Barnes and Noble last night.  No, we did not wait around until midnight to get the book.  I went to a closer bookstore this morning to pick up a copy.  In and out in 10 minutes.  🙂  Anyway, we went to Barnes and Noble last night because they had live owls!  They had the same group for the last book release.  The group rescues injured owls.  The ones that can be rehabilitated are released back into the wild.  The ones that can’t are used for educational programs.  The owls were so beautiful and majestic.  I wanted scoop up the little tiny ones and bring them home.

Barnes and Noble also had trivia questions posted around the store.  There was a contest for who could find all the questions and answer them correctly.  Had we been willing to stick around long enough, I think the boys could have answered them all.  Of the ones we found, the boys knew them all.  They helped out a few people who were struggling with some of the more obscure questions.

We saw lots of people we knew.  Some of the costumes were very good. No, I did make costumes.  We did not even attempt to dress up.  We went primarily to see the owls.  All in all, it was an enjoyable evening.
