jenepel: (Books are love)
I don't have the time (or the inclination I think) to write a real response to it now.  But I just have to say that I can't believe it's actually over.  I have read every bit of the Harry Potter story - I know what happens, who dies, who survives, who was good and who was evil and who was a little in between.  I just...can't believe it.  I'm happy with it, but it's such a weird feeling.  And I'm sad.  Of course I can reread, and I plan to, but it's never going to be quite the same as when I opened the last book yesterday and started.  I had the busiest, craziest weekend, and every little spare moment was filled with me sandwiching in a little more HP.  I was so determined not to be spoiled at all that I had to  finish it by Monday when I would go to work, see newspapers, be on the internet, etc.  I was too scared that something would be out.  And I am looking forward to rereading it at my leisure and really taking it in.  I'm going to do HBP Mon/Tues and then take DH on the plane Wed.  And I'm going to try and stay away from any fanfic for at least a month.  Past experience has taught me that reading fanfic right after I finished the book (which is the compulsion since you need MORE MORE) means that canon and fanfic get confused in my mind, which is unacceptable.  ANYWAY, that's it.  Harry's story is over - unless, I guess, JKR relents on that front.  But I kind of hope she won't.  I would be interested to read something else from her.

Oliver's party was really fun too.  Good weekend.  :)
