Exciting Times at Borders
When I descended from the second floor it was a little after 9 pm. And it became apparent that tonight was the night. At midnight, certainly the witching hour, the new Harry Potter book is to be released. And children and young adults in costume were already lining up for the party. I can imagine their excitement. They will dash home, curl up and probably read all night, or until sleep overcomes them. I wonder how many pages this book will be. Anyway, I wish all the children in the English-speaking world the great joy they will find in reading this new book. I wonder if translations have already been done in the other languages of the world or do those kids, Italian, Finnish, Ukrainian, Japanese, have to wait? My copy will come in the mail. Tomorrow? Or maybe Monday?
