Accio Deathly Hallows

Okay, that ticks me off. The entire entry somehow got lost as I clicked “post.” I’m annoyed now. Let’s see if I can recreate it…

Perfect expression of many people’s thoughts this weekend, no? I don’t know about you, but I’ll be spending late Friday evening at my local independent children’s bookstore and then reading all weekend. That is, if I finish editing Hallowmere book 3 this week, which of course will happen!
Oh, I had also said that this video is from Brotherhood 2.0, a most hilarious blog by two brothers, author John Green (Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines) and his brother Hank. They make me laugh pretty much every time, but I must say my favorite has to be Hank’s songs, especially his tribute to Helen Hunt, which makes me giggle every time I think of it.
Also, to go along with the Harry Potter mania theme, I saw the movie last week, and I really liked it. I think it helped that I haven’t r
ead the book for a good 2 years (or whenever it was released, 3 years?). I think the removal helped me to really appreciate the movie as a separate entity. There were some things I thought missing though I couldn’t think what they were–I’ve been reminded since of at least one, Ron and Hermione being prefects–and I’d liked to have seen a little more of the school year, but overall the action was great, the plot was tight, and they chose to focus on the most important parts. I give it a thumbs up.
Happy reading this weekend everyone! No spoilers!
