Of course, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows releases tonight at midnight. I ordered mine off Amazon, and am hoping it makes it to my house by tomorrow so I can spend the weekend reading.. spoiler-free!
Who’s planning on going to a midnight party release? Any die-hard fans out there? … Who use their kid as an excuse to go? 🙂
