I had to cancel my trip to Sectus, and one of the things I was most looking forward to there was the reading party. The idea of reading the final HP book in a room with other fans sounded so exciting.
So is anyone interested in having a reading party next weekend? I'll be picking my book up at midnight in Austin and then heading home to start reading, and I would be happy to have people over to read, whenever they want to start. You could come at 1:00 am, 8:00 am, 1:00 pm, whatever. I have lots of space and places for people to sit around and read. There are three bedrooms where you could go take a nap if you want. We could set aside a "spoiler room" for anyone who wants to go and talk about what they just read. I could fire up the home theater system for anyone who wants to take a break and watch a movie. I have wireless, so you can bring your laptops and keep up with what's going on on LJ, even. We could order in food, drink coffee, and just share the experience of reading the last book together.
Comment if you're interested and I'll put together a post with more specific details.
