I just finished Book Six of Harry Potter. The young 'un returns from vacation with his Dad tomorrow, with his new (birthday present) Book Seven in hand and, according to this morning's phone call, ready to start reading it. So I stayed home today and finished The Half-Blood Prince. NO, NO, NO! I don't like the ending at all. No wonder everyone has been waiting so desperately for The Deathly Hallows.
But no spoilers here. I can't tell you how grateful I am to have avoided spoilers so far. Everyone has been so polite about it. It almost gives me hope in humanity after all.
