Ages of Blog

It's been three years since the last Harry Potter book came out. I was there for the midnight release, and I blogged the event--it was one of my early posts, and I remember it fondly. It was a good book, and it's been a good three years for the Lab.

Well, the next one comes out tonight at midnight. I'll be there, and once again I'm glad to have friends who understand the paramount importance of the event.

Update (Saturday mid-afternoon): It's great. Of course. It's not quite an escalation in the way that the fourth one was, but it's every bit as good a book. Incredible sense of rising dread, and some of the series's most vivid character growth yet.

I am so not in a mood to wait another three years for number six.
