Two much of Harry


7 am Odyssey, Adyar. As if one were not enough , I got two copies- one for self and another for a niece. No crowd at all much to my dismay. I was hoping to catch kids in Potter garb and so on


One was on 15% discount since I had booked earlier, the other I got a dual book free by some Samit Basu- cover looks interesting.

Art, your new look blog - rocks!!! Big time. And Anush looks like such a darling lil girl. In a lot of ways she resembles you :)

I am no Hari Puttar fan - so I reserve my comments on the craze that the 7th book has generated. NDTV reports 3mn books were sold in the first 24 hours alone. Wow!!!

Bought mine in Odyssey as well, the husband and I drove down to Chennai from Bangalore and I made him stop in Odyssey before we went any further. I bought only one copy though, my niece is waiting for me to finish it and send it to her- aren't I a cruel aunt:)
