Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Got home from Borders with our copy of the book (and also my mother-in-law's copy) just before 0100. Unfortunately, I have to be at work at 0730, so I went straight to bed. No telling when I'll actually get to read the thing; my next day off isn't until Wednesday....

Update 0057 22 Jul: I got home around 1600 to discover that my 11-year-old had already finished the book. (She admitted to having stayed up until dawn, reading.) No-one else was home, so I claimed the book; I'm now on page 502 (beginning of chapter 25, "Shell Cottage"), about two-thirds of the way through.

One of the girls from work was also at Borders at midnight; she told me that she had stayed up long enough to read the first two chapters, and they were intense. I'll say. The whole bloody book is intense - it hasn't slowed down a bit since the beginning. Wow.

Update 0015 23 Jul: Wow....
