Standing on line for nothing?


NO THERE ARE NO SPOILERS AHEAD.

For weeks now I’ve been reading/seeing/hearing about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I can state with a fair amount of certainty that it is the most anticipated book of this year. I witnessed the lines around the building at various book stores, some even a few days before the release at 12:01am on Saturday morning. I have friends who pre-ordered and lamented that the book didn’t arrive until today (if you shipped it to work). The lucky readers who got their books on Saturday and read all weekend long vs. the unlucky ones who didn’t get a copy and have to wait until the bookstores restock.

Which is why I found it ironic and sort of wryly amusing that as I stopped off at the neighborhood Ralph’s on my way home, there was a table with at least 50 copies of the book, untouched, over by the bakery.
