My copy arrived yesterday. When I heard the mail carrier slam the mailbox door, I realized that this was "the day".
I strolled down the driveway in the warm sunshine and pulled out the box with its muggles warning and broke into delighted laughter.
I was still standing there holding the book in my hands when the mail carrier came back up the road and cheerily beeped his horn at me.
Through great strength of will, I resisted opening the book until I had finished the chores I had set for myself.
This was a great read. I was able to sample the first few chapters and stop for supper, but once I picked the book up again, I was unable to put it down.
The story line kept me guessing and the tension was maintained beautifully with no let up. When I finally put the book down, it was with the feeling that every loose end was tied up properly.
This was a real masterpiece. J. K. Rowling has well and truly brought the Harry Potter story to a fitting conclusion.
