Harry Potter day

Also known as my weekend forecast.

I missed the entire business of lining up at 9.01 on the dot to pick up my copy like a modern day Oliver Twist. Still surpised to see how many people casually walked through Dymocks, picked up a copy and went straight to the cash register though.

Before the lashback starts on it was all a marketing campaign gone crazy etc, I’m staying away from any HP associated media for the next 48 hours.

It’s still pretty damn amazing that a single author managed to keep a range of readers across different age groups enthralled for so many years, and I’m going to savour the last book as much as I possibly can.

In case anyone is interested, the wip behind the book is a feather and fan scarf pattern I’m knitting for mum.
