flesh

I missed a night in the pub!

I went into Nottingham this morning to do some shopping. I bought some clothes, some food... oh, and I got my greasy paws on a copy of this:



I got home at 7pm, turned off the phone and the computer and set about reading... five hours later i'm back and I can honestly say that i'm quite impressed! I guess it was definitely worth the wait.

Unfortunately, switching the phone off meant that I missed Jill's summons to the pub. Sorry, mate; I was in bed with Harry Potter.

Arrrrgh!

I'm blind! I've been reading in the garden and I can't see a bloody thing now! I can't see the keys but i'll try typing this anyway... The new Potter book's shaping up to be a quality read. It's strange though. It's been well over a year since I read the last one but as I start on the new one it seems like no time at all. It's like finding your favourite sweater in the back of the wardrobe; you've not worn it for ages yet it just feels right. The Potterverse is now so absolute in my mind that stepping back into it doesn't require any conscious effort as my eyes suck the words from the page.

Rowling's done a job and half too. Easing us back into Potter's life with a series of somewhat visual chapters that are seeding the grounds for what promise to be a cracking read! Right, back to it... but first: caffeine!
