WOW! I finished reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at 4 p m edt, today, Sunday, July 22, 2007. I didn’t mean to. I had a rational schedule all figured out, and knew what other work I wanted to accomplish. I was planning to finish probably Tuesday.
J. K. Rowling is such a good writer – there was tension in the story until just pages before the end – 749 pages, and then an Epilogue titled Nineteen Years Later – so the book ends at page 759.
Read just 85 pages on Friday night / Saturday morning after I picked it up at 12:01 a m. Did what I was scheduled to do on Saturday and then… perhaps there was a Charm on the book!
About a third of the way through, I could not stand the potential pain, and so read the Epilogue, which made it possible for me to read the rest. And continued to eat, sleep and read Harry Potter – until just now.
What a writer. What a school. What a world.
