I am torn. I want the new Harry Potter book. I thought, "Meh, I can wait." but their bothersome media-machine is wearing me down. It's not yet midnight around these parts... and at least two stores are opening specifically to sell copies moments after the stroke of 12.
However... the kid has just crashed out for the night... and I really don't need to shell out $41 for a book that is not "required reading." I am also unimpressed by Raincoast (the Canadian distributor) and it's court injunction nonsense.
I sense that half my friends are about to jump off a bridge; I can hear my Mom asking me if I'd do that too, but to be honest the drop doesn't look that imposing from this angle. I've got about 90 minutes to decide.
