This is the reason why you haven't heard from us for the past couple days... And it doesn't help that Bryson is hogging the book, which he thinks is his new textbook at Hogwarts.
This much-awaited 759-page finale to the Harry Potter series is not only keeping the midnight oil burning, it's even caused a few domestic disputes- accusations like "Why did it take you 5 hours to do laundry?", and "This dinner taste like charcoal" kept flying around the house. I suspect the collective GDP of the world has probably taken a hit this past week.
And you know the only thing scarier than Lord Voldemort himself is how you just can't walk away from the book- it is literally spellbinding (a bit of magic for you muggles). And like a great vacation, you see each page go by but you just don't want it to end.
And for those of you who for some reason have missed out on the magic, or who has an aversion to reading (well, but then you wouldn't be reading this blog, never mind), try the Audio Books for the series. It's particularly advisable if you often find yourself stuck in traffic, the time just flies by and you wouldn't even mind being cut off by that road-rager. But, be warned, you may be more liable to tardiness since you may find yourself sitting in the car at your destination, not wanting to turn your stereo off. But trust me, it's all worth it.
