Starting to get excited about the first Harry Potter Deathly Hallows movie? Me too. So are other folks in the literary world, notably Nathan Bransford has dedicated the whole week to HP.
I've been watching fanmade YouTube music videos (c'mon, please don't tell me I'm the only one), listening to ORDER OF THE PHOENIX on audio tape, watching HALF BLOOD PRINCE. I listened to DEATHLY HALLOWS this summer. I haven't started reading fanfic yet, but I've done it before and I'll do it again. I need my HP fix. I can't wait to see how they portray this book--it has so many of my favorite scenes in the series. My all time favorite scene is The Silver Doe-Chapter 19. It has everything--Ron kicks butt, Snape's true colors show, Harry realizes how important his friends are, and Ron realizes [finally] his feelings for Hermione. I've got it bookmarked and sometimes I just read that chapter. Here's a good discussion of The Silver Doe.
I've got a date with my sister and cousins to see HP...but not until the 23rd. I can't wait!
So, now that I've shown my true HP nerd-ness...How are you celebrating the release of HP Deathly Hallows?
