Where Were You?

We've all been talking a lot about HBP, and with good reason.

However, this post is not about the book itself. Instead, I was wondering where you were on Friday Night/Saturday morning. A lot of us must have attended amazing book release parties. So... how about it? Got any awesome stories to tell or pictures to share?

I attended the Barnes & Noble Midnight Magic party at the Union Square store, here in NYC. It was phenomenal. Aside from being stopped for countless photos, filmed/interviewed for various and sundry media outlets, and screaming like a crazy fangirl... I got to see/listen to JIM DALE! Also, a couple of my friends and myself got hit on by Hagrid *and* Dumbledore (creepy and amusing).

Oh... and all of that media attention I mentioned?
I and my friends are in the video on the Barnes & Noble website: Release Party Video (look for a bunch of Quidditch robes)

And, we made it into the NY Times
(My boyfriend screen capped the web page and uploaded the images here: NY Times HBP coverage
(I'm the one in the Slytherin Quidditch robes... )

So... think of this as a place to share about the cool things you did. If you want to share images though, I would ask that you link to them instead of putting them in the comments. We have members on dial-up, and they might want to read about your experiences without being bogged down by images in the comments.
