Hungover

Well, I'm finished. I finished The Deathly Hallows last night, and I've spent much of today feeling sort of sad and hungover. I obviously won't say anything about the book here, except that I enjoyed it, but after a full day completely immersed in that universe, it's been a bit jarring to return to my normal life (and with no other book to look forward to except my own--which is a lot of work, with a payoff that's far, far away).

But anyway, I have now resumed contact with the outside world. Phone at will.

Hey--I've been neglecting children and work. I'm about halfway through.

Totally feel you on the hungover part...and enjoyment. If you want to chat details, let me know!

Of course, the kids here at camp finished midday yesterday....psycho munchichis that they are.

I finished last night around 12:30. I'm feeling emotional too - I was so compelled to keep reading. We'll talk soon!

love,

Hi A, I'm dying to read the book but Marco has dibs on our copy. I'm only admitting this here, but we went to a midnight Potter extravaganza at B&N Union Square -- I'll send you this adorable picture of two people dressed as house elves. And hey - thanks for the props below on the dancing?! That was fun. Let's do it again soon. xo

I really enjoyed that book!

There are plenty of writers who could learn a great deal from Rowling about how to hold a reader's attention page after page.
