On the Brink

It’s heeeeeree!

The Harry Potter finale has arrived. Stores all over the metro area (even Wizard’s Chest for goodness sakes!) are shoring up the doors, walls and aisles as the completion of a long journey comes to an end. Where I work (at a to be named bookstore ’cause I don’t wanna get beat up) I’ve heard rumors of just over 3,000 copies waiting in the only backroom we have ready to rock and roll.

This compared to The Tattered Cover which has had people sign in triplicate to confirm they will not release the books location until the moment is at hand. I’ll be dressing up tonight as I sell books to excited children, loony adults and even, *gasp*, myself as I have to know the truth (even if I know all the spoilers I’ll still read the whole thing) and discover what happens to our boy Harry.

What are you out there doing for Harry Potter Day? Dressing up? Partying like a madman? Tell us! Please? We need to drive the bloody comments up a little mo’.

    I’m reading about the grief counselors lining up to handle the trauma all these kids are going to suffer. Another industry spawned from the Potter mania. Ka-ching!

    From the looks of this video, Pottermania swept through Denver like a plague:

    Thanks Matt!

    The midnight potter party at my place of work was awesome and we sold a whole ton’o books. I even got to play dress up! :)
