Read it and weep
Harry Potter mania has hit the US. This morning I went to the small book store in Larchmont Village and the workers told me that they were open at 12 midnight to sell the latest Harry Potter book and after twenty minutes they were SOLD OUT! That they had to stay open because of the pre-order people had to pick up their books like junkies picking up their next fix. I have never read a Harry Potter book and seen two of the film and they were charming but still I don't get it! But God bless that woman for inflaming people (not only children) to read! How delightful that Ameicans can be as passionate about a book as they are about the Super Bowl or the World Series!
