Day 35 - Up all night finishing Harry

Gosh, look at the eyes!! I really need to start getting more sleep.
After a couple of sleepless nights with my daughter, shes 13 and im worried!!! I decided to stay up and finish Harry. The last 100 or so pages are the final battle and you cant go putting the book down then!!!
So I stayed up til 1.30am reading and now i am done!! It was a little predictable, but still hugely enjoyable and will make an excellent movie. All those unfinished things are explained and we are left in no doubt about anything.
Its really sad that this is the last book. Its the end of an era. Children everywhere will no longer have that anticipation for the next book to read. Imagine, no more waiting at the front of bookshops decked out in witches clobber waiting for the shop to open!! When has that happened before? And will it ever happen again? Will kids ever get this pationate about a book? I think Harry will be long remembered for his input into this generatinon of kids. And adults!! I love it!!
