MEME: Booking Through Thursday

Booking Through Thursday
  • Okay, love him or loathe him, you’d have to live under a rock not to know that J.K. Rowling’s final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, comes out on Saturday… Are you going to read it?
  • If so, right away? Or just, you know, eventually, when you get around to it? Are you attending any of the midnight parties?
  • If you’re not going to read it, why not?
  • And, for the record… what do you think? Will Harry survive the series? What are you most looking forward to?

Yes, I'm going to read it. It is on order and will be delivered Saturday. I won't get it right away, because my 9 year old son wants it first. I'll get to it within the month I imagine. Mostly because I will be afraid to go online until I've read it, and I don't want to know anything before I read it. I imagine, however, that will be very difficult. This will be the first time my son will have read the book first, and I'm not sure how well he'll be able to not let anything out.

I hope Harry will survive but I haven't given it much thought and I trust JK Rowling. I mostly hope that Snape will be vindicated, and be as good as Dumbledore always insisted. That is my bigger concern, more than if Harry survives. It is very possible that Harry can't survive, but I really want Snape to be on the good side.


  1. I want Snape to end up good too. I'll be reading it this weekend because I don't want to risk seeing any spoilers. Good luck staying spoiler-free until you get a chance to read it.

  2. It's funny, but I posted about Harry Potter just BEFORE this BTT came out! You can read both posts about him at my blog.

    And I so know what you mean about spoilers!

  3. Oh, poor you! LOL I can just imagine your son trying so hard not to blurt out any big spoiler but not being able to hold back. You're one brave mother, letting him read the book first! :-)
