I am ready.

I am ready for Book 7.

I have seen the new movie. I found it positively entertaining and I loved it. It is rare that I go to adult movies, even more rare that it would be an 'action' movie, but I just love these. I could watch it all afternoon.

I have re-read Book 6, I finished this afternoon. I thought it got off to a slow start but picked up once Harry and Dumbledore began their travels into the past.

I will pick up my reserved copy of the book Saturday morning but unfortunately I have to WORK all weekend and the first long stretch of time I have to read will be Sunday evening. I hope to finish it then. I really would like to get the end on my own, without any 'spoilers'.

I have also been reading Margaret Forster's Keeping the World Away. I have been enjoying it, but put it aside to read Book 6 and plan to resume reading it tonight. I have also been working on putting more of my books into Librarything. I have a helper that likes to carry the books to the computer, then stack and count them. The reason I am just entering this batch is that things are going to be rearranged here soon. I absolutely cannot wait - something has been on order since March.

I am looking forward to reading everyone's thought on the book next week - have a great weekend.

I won't be reading book 7 until next week, so I'll have to avoid reading anything about it until then.

I love Margaret Forster's books. The last one I read was "Over", which I enjoyed. I hope you'll write what you think about "Keeping the World Away".

Um, does that mean you're pregnant (ie something that's been on order since March)? If so, congratulations. Of course, you may be talking about a major piece of furniture:-)
I'm of two minds about The Book. It's the perfect time to be curling up in front of the fire reading it, and I couldn't bear it if someone told me the ending!

Booksplease, I definitely will write about Forster's book. The only other one I have read is Lady's Maid.

Lazy cow, No I am not pregnant! Oh my, it's funny that you read it like that! Your second guess is correct...

I feel the same about the ending. Apparently a DJ here is planning on reading the last page on the air. It's on the front page of the newspaper. Very obnoxious.

My husband tells me that the queue for the midnight launch had already begun outside one of our big bookshops at 8.00 this morning.
Who in their right mind would want to spoil the ending for people?

I have read Keeping the World away and blogged about it. I am ahuge fan of Margaret Forster and this is one of her best. I loved it.

Re HP - I shall be up at the crack of dawn out to get it and then back home. Rest of hte day will be spent non stop reading to see what happens!

I have two college age sons who will be reading HP and the Deathly Hallows ahead of me. So you'll be 'way ahead of me...

Hey Tara, this has nothing to do with HP, but I tried to email you by clicking that cute little envelope but there was no email address there. They had mine, but not yours. :<)
