Harry Today gone tomorrow?

1.7 Lakh copies sold in India yesterday. My kid sister is a proud owner of one of those copies. I must admit I was one of the victims of the pre-sales hype and had to see this for myself. And the experience was so overwhelming, that I'm still at a loss for words.
So i'll make it easier both for the reader and myself. Uploading these pics will save me an effort of furnishing some six thousand words at least. Check it out...



Duh! and you thought booking the tickets for the latest harry potter movie was any easier?










we've come a long way baby!

We're the people who have breathed Harry Potter! Countless hours of discussion, book endings talked about till we went crazy, speculations about who'd die, oh I can't talk enough about HP.

If you didn't feel all that, I can only say that you missed something...

@jayshree: he he! my sister totally subscribes to your views. Methinks the two of you should meet and the countless hours of discussion on the latest book will not be wasted on the "harry potter" ignorant yours truly!he he!
have you booked your copy? have you read book 7 ? as for me, won a quiz, picked up a voucher from the odyssey book shop(shown above) and picked up three books i've always wanted to own. bram strokers dracula, jerome k jerome's three men in a boat and the hard bound call of the wild by jack london. Bliss!
