Did you go to a bookstore at midnight to get your copy of Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows?

    I loved it too! There were hundreds of people there, playing music, selling stuff, doing magic acts and wearing costumes. It was like a festival, I loved it so much! My friend and I qued from 9p.m. and when we got inside we waited for a couple of minutes until midnight because nobody would let anyone else open their book until then. It was a such great community spirit! When we got our books and had to walk past people in the line we thought we were going to be mugged - there were so many people staring longingly at our books - luckily all we got was a few high-fives, waves and a comedic conversation with a guy dressed as Hedwig. I doubt any other book will ever have that big an effect on so many people.

    The only midnight premiere I ever went to. They had this sorting hat thing, and the sorting hat put me in Ravenclaw (GO RAVENCLAW!), so I got a blue bracelet that says 'Ravenclaw' on it. It's so pretty! :D

    My boyfriend got put in Slytherin though! SLYTHERIN! He's a Ravenclaw I tell you!

    i suppose there are more harmful ways to spend your time, (drugs, crime, self-mutilation, etc.) but no way would i be in such desperate straights for anything like that. i'm addicted to the sims, but have never, ever, nnneverrr, rushed to get any expansion pack, stuff pack (and i have them all) or any sims related "stuff".

    Haha, it's not a rush, it's a party. Just celebrate some good writing. What better time to do it than when it comes out?

    I started queuing at around 4pm, there were people there from around 9/10am, I wish I had done that now, the queue was so much fun! I thought it would be really boring, I was just going to put up with it because I liked HP so much, I expected the last maybe hour to be fun, and everything else boring, but it was all such good fun. There's just something great about being around people you know feel exactly the same as you!

    I hadn't yet convinced my father to let me read the books/watch the movies.

    But when I did, I went straight to the bookstore to get the final book. (I had read the other ones)

    I did something horrible and sinful and truly awful. Please don't hate me. I read the synopsis on wikipedia. I didn't want to read the whole thing just to find out who died and my curiosity level ......

    No I haven't read any of the Harry Potter books although I want to start, I heard they were really good, better than the movies, is this true??
  • oy HI-DE 2007/07/27 00:06:47

    The movies are pretty amazing, but just look at it this way : the books are beyond long and there's no way they can possibly fit everything into a 2-3 hour movie. So there's sooooo much you're missing out on by just watching the movies. :(
  • HI-DE oy 2007/07/27 20:25:51

    ok well thanks I will try to read them.

    I've never read any of the books and never seen any of the movies.
    I live so far out of the way that I would have to drive at least 50 miles to find a bookstore open that late.

    My town went crazy, we had six stores hosting Harry Potter book parties, people of all ages coming dressed up in H.P. attire, the younger kids were having fun, plenty of security at each store just in case, but overall it was a peaceful night.

    I, too, haven't seen the Potter movies or read any of the books. I plan to. I waited in line at like 3am with my dad and brother to Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back when it first opened.

    No, you aren't alone. My husband and I are also in that club, although as our kids get older I will probably buy them the books.
