The end of my affair with Harry

Tonight at 12:01 AM, Daniel and I will be at Wal-Mart waiting to get 2 copies of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. However, I don't want to read mine right away. I don't want the love affair to end. I have been crazy about Harry since it came out in 1997. Each book marks a period of my own life as well. For example, the first birthday present Daniel ever got me was a copy of Half Blood Prince. I feel butterflies in my stomach, hoping that by reading the last book wont leave a feeling of disgust like watching the last Pirates of the Caribbean movie. I realize that this book wont please every fan, and has a big chance of breaking my heart. So, I'm letting Daniel read it first. It will cushion the blow.

I'm so glad to know I wasn't the only one who didn't want to read DH right away. I was such a dork when it arrived in the mail - I sat down on the front porch, held it in my hands and cried before I even cracked it open. (I'll deny it to high heaven if you tell anyone. :::snicker:::) I didn't want to have to let go of Harry. lol

The only movie I can't wait to see is Stardust - we'll see what they did to Neil Gaiman's book. :-)
