I thought I'd post and see what everyone's planning for the HBP release (a little more than three weeks away!), and have a thread going on what sort of events are going on around Eugene and where ever you might find yourself.
The UO bookstore is having a launch party with face painting, a wand shop, costume and trivia contests, and a 20% off sale from 9 pm to 1 am. Books Without Borders inside the Strand on 10th and Charnelton is also accepting pre-orders (support independent bookstores!). Borders has one too. I didn't see anything at Smith Family when I was there today, but I'm sure they'll probably take pre-orders too (has anyone else seen them using their old OotP boxes to store bought-back books? funny!).
Anyone know anything else that's going on? If you're not going to be in Eugene, where're you planning to be? (It looks like Powell's doesn't have anything planned, if you're in the Portland area.) Meanwhile, I'll be going here.
Can you believe it'll be here so soon?
