I know, I'm ready for both. I'm so bummed the movie won't be released here until August. I would have thought it would be a worldwide premiere.

The book, well, we'll get it on time, but hubby has to reread book 6 because he has forgotten everything. I just hope I don't lose out on spoilers being everywhere! I'm going to have to put a moratorium on all internet and tv for a few days until we have gotten around to reading it.

Hi Mel,

Yes, It sucks that the movie arrives in Greece on August 21nd. Cursed subtitles and voice-overs...

PLUS I think the distribution company in Greece was thinking let's make a smashing box-office impression when the kids are back home after their summer holidays (which is usually after the 15th of August). Never mind about the rest of the Potter fans... let them sweat it out. THIS WHY I WISH I WASN'T A MUGGLE and a magic wand would come in handy.

I remember it was a Saturday when Book #6 came out all over the world. Daughter#1 and I were at Psichogios publications(the Greek HP distributors) at 8.30 a.m.

It was a disappointment that we were the only two waiting for the shop to open. No HP mania here in Athens. Bummer.

This year Daughter#1 will be on vacation and I'm planning to be at the bookstore a bit later.

Around 9.00 a.m.

My girls are younger than yours but still big fans. My 5-year-old is obsessed with Harry Potter even though we haven't read any of the books to her yet.
