The end comes closer

As any die hard Potter freak knows, this image represents the end of an era. The cover of the mixed feeling producer book 7. It's been 10 years since the first book hit shelves of book stores and libraries.

Warner Bros is responsable for taking Jo's world to the big screen. A dificilt task, but they have done amazingly well. The stories have been adapted under Jo's guidance and have been a huge success.

Yet nothing compares to Jo's inspiration. The Potter septology is something worth reading, and is enjoyed best as a one shot. The use of adjectives to make the story more vivid makes reading the last 3 books a breeze. Even when they are 400+ pages long.

Now the only thing we can do is reread the past 6 years of adventure and wait for the final instalment of this saga. The wait has been the standard for the last 2 books, 2 years. The book went on pre-order since January. Most booksellers promising same day shipping.

My concern was to get the book on time, even though I'm here in Mexico. Granted 3 bookstores are also dealing with pre-orders for book 7. Today, I paid up for my book and Janfek's as well. All I can do now is wait paciently for the movie and the book the following week.

July 21 seems so far away
