I've just had a monstrous thought!
What if Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows isn't available in Zürich at midnight on July 21st? What if I have to wait until it is stocked at one of the local bookstores? What if it is weeks after it actually is released before I can get my hands on a copy?
That would be entirely unacceptable!
I must find out how to get Harry Potter on the first day of its release.
Worse case scenario, GLH and I will have to plan a trip to London for that weekend.
As if THAT would be so terrible!
Of course, for GLH it might be. As soon as I have that book in my hand, all will be ignored until I have finished it. Even him and all the splendours of London.
We'd better make certain the hotel in London has a comfortable chair and a good reading light...
