I bought my copy of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix at midnight on June 21, and I just finished it about 15 minutes ago. I enjoyed it greatly.
What I didn’t enjoy was the midnight party sale for the book at the local Barnes and Noble. Scott and I arrived at the bookstore at around midnight, surrounded by dozens and dozens of people dressed up and milling around the place. It reminded both Scott and I of Christmas shopping, something both of us dislike immensely. I ended up receiving my book at approximately 12:33am, thankfully, and we went back to his apartment where I proceeded to read until close to 2am.
I’ll be rereading it again sometime soon, I’m sure.
