    ..... do you or your children have one on order?

    WH Smiths are throwing their doors open at midnight locally tonight - I expect it's countrywide? We were handed an invitation to the 'party' but DS says he'll be fine to collect it tomorrow!

    Just as well - I think he would have started on the book straightaway = a totally sleepless night!!

    I'm looking forward to some peace and quiet when he gets stuck into this :teeth: !

    I have an 8-year-old who has just discovered Harry. He's had his nose in the first book for two days now. I'm so glad he's a reader. :D

    We ordered ours in advanced from Tesco Online - just had an email to say it has been posted and to expect delivery tomorrow morning (if the postman can get it through the letter box!).

    I think we paid £7.76 + postage :)

    Younger dd has spoken of nothing else for weeks. We've had it on order from Amazon since February. We received the despatch notification at 5.28 this morning - I just hope Royal Mail delivers it now or life in this house won't be worth living.

    I was so concerned that I might not get it if I ordered it to be delivered, that I thought I'd rather go and buy it in person!

    Mr. Postman has just knocked me up to deliver our Harry Potter - just trying to decide whether to go back to bed - although I'm fully awake now, so looks like I will have to make DW a cup of coffee and some toast -- and then fight over who reads the book first :)

    Well, I'm pleased to report that it has arrived. Dd stayed at her Dad's last night and, knowing that there was no way it would fit through the letter box, I knew I needed to be awake early this morning. We've got a particularly malevolent postman who insists on coming before 7am on a Saturday. During the week, he's never here earlier than 10.30am. :rolleyes:

    I lost the argument about who is to read the book first :(

    DW snatched it off me this morning. I may nip out and get my own copy later :)
