Was strolling through the greatness of Super Target on Saturday and spied the new Harry Potter - on sale. So I got it. Was up past 11 last night reading (normal bed-time: 9:30), istead of flipping through channels. I am on Ch.18. I'm with Robert M...it's good that there is something out there getting kids to want to read. (And apparently some grown-ups, too.) It's no Nick Hornby, but it's pretty good.
UPDATE: Have finished the book. It was very good, very dark. When's the next one?
