Waiting...

So. I figure probably around 12 hours from now, I'll have my shiny new book on my non-shiny old porch, waiting for me. I'll probably still be asleep and won't be reading it yet, but... soooon. *drools*

(That's assuming it gets here without any hitches from Amazon, which if that isn't the case, I will NOT be pleased, since for some reason Amazon isn't giving me a tracking # for the shipment. Hrm.)

As I'm going back through some of the old books though (I skipped ahead to Half-Blood Prince in my re-reads, but I doubt I'll even finish that before P-Day, since I still have over half to go), I'm realizing that I'll probably never get what I really want out of the books: namely, a look at more normal wizarding life. I'm realizing that what I'm enjoying most out of the books are the non-school interactions with the adult characters, the looks at the wizarding life in the Burrow and Diagon Alley and so forth. Now, we might get some of that tomorrow if Harry is indeed out of Hogwarts and hunting around, but I also doubt we'll be seeing much normality, you know?

Ah well. At least tomorrow, we get to find out how it ends.

If anyone's curious, I probably won't be looking at the internet all tomorrow or even later, until I finish with the book. I don't trust people...

See y'all on the flip side! (Although I may have another post or two tonight, before going to bed...)

You can trick Amazon into telling you; I guess they pulled it off the normal page to prevent 1.5 million obsessive refreshers from killing their site.

Anyway, use the 'most recent 6 months of orders' link, and do a view order on the one in question, and the tracking number / link should be there.

I actually did do this, but I'm assuming it hadn't actually been officially shipped yet then, because the tracking button/number wasn't there at that time. It is now. And someone may have to be injured very badly, because checking the link, it has the "arrival scan" in my town as per usual for early today (er, yesterday I guess, since it's after midnight). Which is then immediately followed by a "departure scan"... Where the hell they sendin' it, then?

Ah, looking at the actual UPS page, it might just be an artifact of the odd hold that they have on it, due to not wanting it to actually get to my door before the release date. Just as long as I get my boooooook preshhhhhhussss tomorrow.

(And maybe some sleep as well. Sleep would be good.)

Not to worry too much: mine's the exact same way. Though it is niggling at me that it's not yet 'out for delivery' at this late hour.
