Harry and Me

I woke up at 8:30 this morning. Must be quite late for your early risers out there, but it's a Saturday and this is already quite early for me.

It's Harry Potter day! I'll get my copy of Book 6 very soon, and I can't wait to line up at the bookstore when the malls open. And so there I was, ironing my clothes when Dessagirl called, asking if I already got my copy.

"Not yet, but I'll be there when the malls open at 10."
"A friend of mine already has a copy since 7AM. In fact, she bought three copies. Bookstores apparently opened early in anticipation of the book's sale."

Great. So much for being one of the top buyers to get a Harry Potter gift item. Anyways, I can't rush off now since I have my reservation, which I did last March. So at 9:30 I was at National Bookstore, where witches were at the entrance peddling the book. There weren't a lot of people in that branch, so I was able to purchase my copy of the book in no time at all.

Jo-Lo would love hearing about Harry Potter when he's ready for bedtime stories.

By the way, if you reserved a copy at National Bookstore, you get it at P1,299.00 (that's P200.00 off the original price) plus a P100.00 gift certificate for your next book purchase. Thank you, National Bookstore!

    Hi dessagirl. Read read read! Maganda sya. In fact, I liked it better than book5

    Hello Mr. Abbey! Wow, time definitely does fly. It feels only like yesterday when you said you were planting to try out the pickled recipe! Let me know how it goes. The tricky part was tasting the sauce, because it's vinegar through and through!

    Fisherpau, na over ka sa HP hehehe

    Uy Airwind. Uliran kang anak. Pero ang HP book mo, imported!

    Amie, kung ganun mangyayari, nagmana sya sa nanay nya hehehe!

    Hi Toni! Natapos ko na po. Grabe yung later parts, di mo talaga ibababa yung libro.

    I keep browsing and exploring and I saw your link from Ting Alings blog and started reading yours-Quite Interesting.

    My comment- seems like Harry Potter book in Manila seem to expensive compare here in the U.S. for $15.73-well, I'm glad you enjoy reading it! I never had my own copy yet! Have a great day!
