Hmmm...I work at Borders here in Indianapolis. The fervor over Harry Potter
is enough to keep me far from it for awhile. I answered the same question
"when are you getting more in??" at least 200 times the same day the book
came out. There were huge lines when the book came out at midnight. We
actually thought parents were going to physically hurt one another if they
didn't get a copy. And the kids just want to read the book. ugh.

It's enough to make you wait to read the series until the hype dies down.
You'd think the book was a Tick-me-Elmo!!


No offense to anyone who liked the books or recommends them. I'm sure
they're good books. But anything that focused on culturally (Britney Spears
or the Backstreet Boys) usually doesn't take long to get on my nerves. At
least I know the hype will die always does!! ;)
