Yes, I will be reading today

I don't do as much reading as I used to do when I was younger and had the time (!) so usually the only books mentioned in this journal are those by my sister.

But today I will, with millions of other people around the world, be reading the seventh of the Harry Potter books. Do not disturb :-) Now I just have to go out and buy it, and run my other Saturday errands, and wave my niece goodbye as she heads off to Cornwall ... and at this rate I'll be reading until midnight!

ETA: And I've finished it in just under 8 hours. Quite dark in places but a good read, and ties up a lot of the story themes well.
