Bad Mommy, Good Harry Book

OKay I should not be on here right now considering I have spent all day long neglecting both my house and probably my children to finish reading my new Harry Potter book! The house has fallen victim to four children who have not been trailed to pickup toys, dishes, eat at the table, ect all day while I was parked on the couch nose deep in my wizarding world of fiction. And as for the neglect comment - Well, I didn't exactly neglect my kids because I fed them, changed diapers, put them down for naps, but other than that I have been parked on the couch reading like a mad woman!

The book was GREAT! No spoilers - I am just going to say I was happy how she ended the series. There were lots of surprises and back story coming together, some characters died as always, but some remain. Harry and Voldemort's end were true to all that was laid out in each book!

Poor hubby's audio version is still not here yet and I am already done! I am dying for him to hurry up and read it so I can discuss it with someone!!!! I will probably wind up reading it a second time before he finishes his first.

Well, now I am off to spend some time with my kids and reclaim the clean house I had this morning when I woke up.

I have to share my book with #1. He was up late reading last night and has disappeared this morning... I think he must be up in his room reading like mad!! I'll have to steal the book back when he takes a break. LOL!!!
Don't feel bad I pretty much neglected everything until I was done reading the book. You know there were some who were disappointed with the epilogue but I wasn't.
I finished the book on Tuesday, having basically read none on Sunday --- so three days, not quite straight. I am looking forward to the next books she is rumoured to be planning, updating what happened between the final battle between H & LV, and the final chapter of the book when the kids are going off to Hogwarts....
Michele sent me tonight.
I found a way to limit the neglect - alternating between the audio and paper copies of the book. I "read" right through cooking dinner, driving, doing laundry, and all the mundane stuff. I'm still only halfway through, though! Thanks for not leaving spoilers.
