Book 7 Has Arrived!

What an experience!
I'm only getting to blog about it now...

I went to the launch party.. And Yes here in South Africa, just like the rest of the world we had a huge 12 O'Clock book launch country wide!

Unfortunately I didn't get any pics.. But I didn't miss out on any of the fun.. I'm still not finished the book.. Been a bit busy at varsity, but I think I should finish it sometime this month!

The Harry Potter Craze!

Hello Out There!

First off let me introduce myself, I'm a 19 Year Old University Student from South Africa.
Growing up I had no interest what so ever in reading, until the day I discovered Harry Potter!

Now it's one of my biggest passions, I've waited outside bookstores since the 4th book and I intend to do the same with the 7th one which is a few days away from release!

So why have I decided to start blogging about it now?
Well I believe Harry Potter is here to stay, well for a couple of years at least... Only recently I read a headline that said fans were signing a petition that would beg J.K Rowling to make her 7th book not her last! So like all the other fans out there, I'm holding thumbs!

I hope to keep this blog up to date with all the relevant experience I have and all the interesting articles I find online, and hopefully a gallery of my experience when I purchase the 7th book! So the rest of the world can see how South Africa celebrates the excitement!

I never intend to post any spoilers on my blogs, so if your a first time reader, just wanting to know what all the fuss is about, read on, and do not worry.

Thats all for now :D
