Happy Friday, Dear Readers! I hope you all have tremendously wonderful weekends! It is Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend here in Canada (Which I obviously think makes more sense than American Thanksgiving on account of me being Canadian. Why should I have to wait for the end of November for Turkey? That’s just bizarre!) so I will obviously have a nice looooooooooooooong weekend.
Well, not that long.
It’s only three days.
I didn’t really need to use that many “o’s” … that’s a bit excessive.
It’s not like I am on a vacation or anything.
Oh well. Moving on.
I am really looking forward to this weekend because something very magical and amazing and totally awesome arrived for me in the mail this week.
Yup. That’s right, you guessed it Dear Reader! (I am giving you the benefit of the doubt here.) My illustrated copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone arrived in the mail this week and I have spent the last few days counting down until I am able to curl up with a blanket, a cup of tea (obviously I need to drink tea when reading a British book, that’s just common sense) and read this new edition addition to my collection. (hee hee, that sentence makes me smile).
Sure, I already have an electronic copy of all of the HP books on my Kobo, and yes, there are the hardcover copies already prominently displayed on my bookshelf, but this one is different! It’s illustrated! And new!
AND I CAN’T WAIT TO COLLECT THEM ALL!
I like to tell people that I bought this illustrated edition so I can share these wonderful stories with my future kids, but the truth is those hypothetical little buggers better keep their sticky hands off my Harry Potter books. (Why are kids hands always sticky?!)
Now, Dear Reader, don’t go thinking I am cruel. Obviously I will buy any future offspring their own copies when the time comes. Every kid should own their own Harry Potter. And one day, if they are really, really well behaved, I might even let them look at my copies. Maybe even touch them … While wearing mittens of course. Two sets. Worn over top of one another.
Actually maybe not. Let’s just stick with looking.
Ok. I had a point! Now back to it!
As it is Canadian Thanksgiving I wanted to take a moment to say how grateful I am to all of you, Dear Readers, for stopping by and reading my rambly thoughts. I appreciate you all very much, even the skimmers!
Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving, Dear Readers.
Now back to my Harry Potter!
