A half hour and counting until "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" goes on sale


    BANV & family drove by Barnes & Nobles at the Tollgate Mall about an hour ago. A line of Potter fans poured out the store’s front door. The sidewalk tables at the Starbucks next door were filled as well. We even spied folks camping out on lawn chairs in the parking lot near the Toys R Us where we saw a couple of muggles dressed as wizards walk by. We didn’t go in. We had to get the kids to bed. And it looked like an older crowd than the party we attended while on vacation in Milwaukee when the second-to-last book came out. I just finished reading the New York Times review of the book they wrote after buying an early copy from a New York book store. Here’s a link to The Baltimore Sun’s review, if you want to get a sneak peek before morning. By the time the sun comes up, a good portion of the world will know Harry’s fate. ‘Til then, happy reading!
