Sorry for the delay this week, if you've been reading you know I was in DC for ALA. More on that in a moment. Well, I took advantage of my train ride south to begin re-reading Half-Blood Prince and I'm really glad that I did as I had forgotten quite a lot. Now I feel like when I see the movie of Phoenix, one week before the big day, I'll be able to place everything in order. God I really am getting old that I'm so concerned about remembering the chronology. Something tells me that the 10 year-olds out there are not as concerned about remembering what happened when, they just know it.
OK, onto the Harry-est Town Update -- and may I just comment for a moment on the Dementor-like grip that VA has on the top of the list? I mean, I love Amazon too, but are there no bookstores holding midnight parties in Virginia? New to the top 100 this week are Ojai, CA (isn't that where the oddly compelling Brothers and Sisters is set?); Estes Park, CO; Olympia, WA; Monroe, NY and Chardon, OH.
