Harry Potter, the Final Obsession

The final Harry Potter book is due in stores on July 21.

My sailing trip this summer departs the morning of July 21.

Question: Should I call ahead to the little bookstore in Rockland, Maine and get them to reserve a copy for me, so that on the morning of July 21 when we have 20 minutes free before we sail, I can run to town, buy the book and then spend my first sailing day in emotional upheaval?

Or should I wait?

I think the answer is clear, but I'll take input.

Meantime, check out this fun Snape-musing from Kelly over at Big A little a.

Ummm...this is a question, Nancy?

I vote you don't set sail until the book is IN YOUR HANDS.

Okay, I'll just have to convince the other 39 passengers and 10 crew. I'm sure they'll understand!

Explain your situation to them and show your ticket...if you ask real nice, and prepay for the book, maybe they'll let you pick up the book early, so you won't miss your trip.

Or if all else fails, see if you have a really good friend who will pick up the book as soon as the bookstore opens and run it over to you. Good luck!

PLEASE ! Half of them will probably have been in line all night for copies, or will be wanting to pick up their own copies first as well !
