My name is Anna and I am a Potter-aholic. I have just emerged from the latest and final installment of JK Rowlings Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. During my self imposed cocoon of a weekend. I chose not to listen to any news or tidbits because I did not want to spoil any part of the book for me. I wanted to digest it completely on my own.
I did not attend the festivities at any of the bookstores at midnight on July 21. I simply went out early Saturday morning, returned to my home book in hand, and headed straight for my couch. I read for hours yesterday finishing at page 362. This morning before 7:30 a.m. I sat at my kitchen table and started at page 363. I cried at least three times. It was awesome, wonderful and trying as my eyes inhaled the words. My emotions ranged from frantic, exhuberant, and fearful...torn between the expected and unexpected.
I know how I felt before I reached the final page at 2:37 p.m. today. I will not disclose anything about the book until I find someone else who has already finished it. Then I will be delighted to share my thoughts and tears.
