I'm off!

So, I'm off to Cape May, NJ and won't be checking into the blog-o-sphere for a while.

Don't forget to vote for your favorite Harry Potter Book. I am almost done with the 6th one - The Half Blood Prince - this is the quickest it's ever taken me to read Harry. Next, the question will be... read the final book, or start reading Twilight...

Have a great week everyone!

Have fun! And trust me, read HP before Twilight! Twilight is good--it's like literary crack, but it's all fluff and HP is so much better :)

Waving! You're so close. Have fun and check out Henry's on the Beach - yummy food. :)

Have fun!!!!

You know, I haven't read any of the HP books, and you've given me incentive to get started. Thanks!

Twilight--"fluff" is too kind....
:-) IMHO! But it is a quick read, and I'm glad I read it so I know what everyone is talking about.

Beth - thanks for the advice because I really was struggling. So far no one has killed the surprise of the last HP book. everyone's been biting their tongues. Anytime I see an interview with JK about it, I quickly turn to another thing. So I have really kept myself in a bubble. I feel like that bubble is about to accidentally burst the longer I wait. So on to book 7 *sniff* and final.

Keri - I know we will be very close! I will def. check out Henry's. I can't wait. We haven't been to the beach since LAST SUMMER! Long over due. Three hours in the car today though...

Hey Chris - so glad you kept your real picture! It is my fav of all the choices! So Twilight is just fluff or less then, aye? OK then, I really am off to book 7 of HP and DEFINITELY, Chris, you MUST read them. I snuffed them at first, but am sooooooooo glad I came to my senses. It's not gorgeous prose, or beautiful literature. It's just an intensely woven world that I can't imagine how many sleepless nights JK must have put into to tying all those loose strings. Amazing!

Happy vacation! You are already missed!

Finish Potter first!

It's likely that once you start Twilight you'll have to read them all.

So, I think you'll get more out of the final installment of HP if you read it with all the details still fresh in your mind! There are a ton of tie-ins from the other books!

Have a wonderful and safe trip! Make LOTS of happy memories!!!

Have a great time!

Ahhh, PJ - what a sweet sentiment to come home to. thank you so much! It is nice to know you are missed...

I agree Lapillus and that is exaclty what I've decided to do. I finished HP #6 at the beach - much to post about... I am so depressed. AND what's worse, I dont' have anything to read tonight... I could start The Secret until tomorrow when I run out to buy book 7...

thanks Amy - we did! It is always so awesome to go to Cape May, except, it is the very end of NJ and feels like it takes forever to get there, but that ride home is so great when you cross over into "home." One of my favorite feelings - coming home...

Thanks Angela, we did. It was perfect weather! And we saw dolphins today!
