It Must be Like Saying Goodbye to Children

At the European premiere of the latest Harry Potter film, J.K. Rowling expressed relief and sadness after completing the final book in the series.

'"Finishing it was very, very emotional. It was a combination of relief and sadness really," she said in London on Tuesday night about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, to be published July 21.

"It's been a hell of a month," said the 41-year-old author, who added that she plans to take a long holiday soon.'

Rowling has remained silent on plot details from even those in her family but has let go the fact that two main characters are fated to die.

The book has reached 1.6 million pre-sales on Amazon alone, making it its most pre-ordered book of all time.

Well, I thought I should visit your blog since you were so kind to visit mine - and I'm glad I did! You've got quite a collection of books here - I'm starting a list of ones I want to go find at my local library.

Re: Harry Potter - How about Draco and Snape are the ones to go? *grin*
