NOT A SPOILER, just a feeling

I finally started reading HP7 at six this morning; I went to work from eight to one thirty and then dashed home and kept reading until I finished it about ten minutes ago.

This article is NOT a spoiler, but the last few paragraphs sum up just how I feel, right here and now.

Well said. I cried buckets too. It was brilliant. I finished on Saturday and was elated and exhilirated and thrilled...then I came down hard yesterday. Such a depressing feeling. It's a horrible feeling, having the door shut on a world that will no longer continue to expand before your very eyes. So sad.

Still...amongst my favourite moments (speaking in code here) - the kid whose initials are A.S.P. Broke my heart that did.

Same here, Audrey. we're still reading it aloud to Bumblebee (about 4/5 through), so there's some fun in going over it again slowly, but I'll never get the rush of reading it fir the first time again!

Links awry? The article I found was "Sales records start to fall for final Harry Potter book".

Regardless, that last scene with ASP was quite touching, but as I closed the book I couldn't help wondering ...(Nah, best save that for a bit, lest I get cursed with spoileritis for the rest of my days)

No, that's the right article, Dean-o. You just have to read the whole thing!

How you hanging, anyway?
