Only about 12 more hours now… An interesting article here from CBC arts reporter Rachel Giese who is resigned to the end of the Harry Potter series. It includes a neat photo by David Calvert/Associated Press of boxes of the book awaiting distribution.
If you’ve already purchased a voucher from McNally Robinson Booksellers in Winnipeg and can’t make the Assiniboine Park event tonight, you can still use the voucher to pick up your copy at the store at midnight. You will note that McNally just updated its website, but, links from the previous posts still work.
Still getting used to the new look of the McNally site – - basically the site already used by the New York store. I liked the way the old site opened on a page filled with thumbnails of the latest book titles – - kind of like walking into the store in person and seeing all the books right there in front of you. To get the same effect, you can set your bookmark page to the “new and noteworthy” link. Happily, all the great information that was on the old site is still there. The opening page takes you to all the articles in the latest McNally newsletter – - a great read in its own right.
Well, back to re-reading Book Six.
