    Are there any plans for a Harry Potter launch party? Is anyone going? When and where is it going to be? Thanks in advance.

    Perhaps that should be Darth Sirius??!
    Some friends and I are planning on attending either the Macleod Tr. South or Shawnessy Chapters midnight parties. We are dressing up in Potter gear and readying our wands! I think you're in the North though - we could organize a party to go to the Spectrum Chapters by Sunridge........

    McNally Robinson booksellers downtown is actually sponsoring a whole series of events starting Friday evening, including a showing a Prisoner of Azkaban at the Science Centre, the book release at midnight, then breakfast Saturday morning and events at the store all day. It sounds like they are totally into it! I was talking to the promoter awhile ago about it and I think he also mentioned a trivia and HP night in their pub/cafe in the evening too - but that's not currently listed on the webpage:

    With all the HP events in town, who is going where? We will be at the Stampede Grandstand show, then we will head out to where everyone has congregated.

    Stayed up all last night reading book 6 - OH MAN. Incredible. Incredibly sad. And surprising. Am re-reading it now (just taking a break to rest the eyes). I can't believe I have to wait another 2 years (at least) for the last one!

    I'm forcing myself to finish the book I'm on now before attacking Half-Blood Prince. The anticipation is great.

    Sorry I missed you guys at the book release. After the grandstand show let out we were so tired we just went home. Was it fun?

    Anyone who has an HBC points card can use 'trad and save' to pick up HBP. It knocked off $10 for me. I'm going to start reading it when I'm finished the Chronicles of Narnia.
