I MIGHT READ IT AGAIN- DEADLY HALLOWS POST

Don't worry, there are no spoilers here.

At about 10:30 this morning I was awakened by the doorbell. Tony opened the door and came back with a package. "The mail lady told me to enjoy my Harry Potter," he said. "I wanted to tell her it wasn't mine but I didn't." I thanked him and I was suddenly wide awake. It was reading time.

I sat in bed and read. I went out to the living room and read while watching the World Series of Pop Culture. I took a break to go out for brunch. I came home and read. I read for a long time. At about 9:30 I took a break to make some dinner. At 10:28 I was done.

Now I can go into the world and not worry. I was afraid that if I waited too long I couldn't help but have the ending spoiled by someone. Now I can go into every conversation without hesitation. I can open every blog and read every newspaper. When I hit stumbleupon on my browser I don't have to worry. It's all good.

Thank you, thank you for not revealing the ending. I'm only a few chapters in and taking a little break, but I have that same fear that I will stumble upon a spoiler. Maybe I should just abandon all and get back to the book.

lol...i am a proud non-harry reader...*sigh*

Travis said...

Yup - did the same thing because I was so nervous about spoilers.

I have a 30 day spoiler free zone on my blog. I just hate the idea that someone will have the ending ruined for them.

Thanks for not spoiling. I'll say no more.

Eve said...

I've been so anxious that I'll overhear someone talking about it. Eek! I better get reading...

it's the little things... said...

I don't even own it yet!

I did a reading marathon too and was also done on Saturday night. I loved it, what did you think?? (although I would've liked more information in the end... you know what I mean)

Johnny Yen said...

I actually started reading the first book, something I'd promised my son I'd do a while back. Now I've got a real task-- finish this one and the next six without having someone spoil the ending for me...

Monica said...

oh, how was worl series of pop culture?

Dirk_Star said...

I've never read a single Potter book...

Dynamo360 said...

You finished it in one day!?! Wow... I am impressed. I haven't even gotten the book yet and am going to do my best to not get the ending spoiled. Normally I don't care but for this one... well this one is special, lol. ;)

Evil Spock said...

I must be the only person in the world that doesn't care about Harry Potter.

Mrs. Loquacious said...

I haven't started reading it yet...practising self-control and saving it until camping this weekend. I think it will be my favourite book.
:)

Katrina said...

HAH! I just finished posting about finishing #5 and having to start #6 as soon as I get home. I too am worried about it being spoiled for me but at the same time I wanted to reread them all because I forgot so much.

Natalie said...

CS- I would never do that. Although I told a bunch of people at work who don't care at all.

NotFearing- As are many of my nearest and dearest.

Travis- 30 days is a pretty good time limit. The people who REALLY care will have likely read it by then.

Eve- You had better. I almost accidentally spoiled it for a woman on the train this morning. It's hard not to.

Little Things Oh no! What will you do?

WLFG- The missing from blogworld Jaclyn is also done. We'll have to conference email.

Johnny Yen- Good luck with that one. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. Then again, you could technically be done with all of them in a week or so.

Monica- I love that show. It was great. I knew plenty.

Dirk- Someone has to not read them

Dynamo- It is special. At least I can promise I won't spoil it for you.

Evil Spock- Actually I know a lot of people who don't care.

Mrs. L- Goblet of fire always has and always will be my favorite. I liked this one a lot though. It will be a good camping read.

Katrina- I had forgotten a lot but i picked it up as I read. Re-reading may have been a good idea though to refresh on some minor characters.

AndreAnna said...

I did the same thing!! I locked myself away and read it all in one sitting (with breaks for sustenance and urination of course.. lol) because I was afraid I would spoil it for myself!

Worst part was I read a spoiler a couple weeks ago and it turned out to me wrong, so the whole time I thought Ron was going to be killed by Bellatrix and he wasn't, which was good! But, I'm such a dork for even trying to stop MYSELF from spoiling it.
