TCBIM started reading the new Harry Potter last night. He had to finish re-reading Order Of The Phoenix first, thus the slight delay.
He took it to work with him last night. He works in a bar on Sunday nights - a bar that gets a decent amount of customers on a Sunday - and he managed to read about 200 pages while there (plus the 100 or so pages he had left to read in TOOTP).
Today, he got up at 7, showered, checked his work email and announced that he didn't have to leave the house until 10. He then sat down and read feverishly for about 2 hours. Left for his appointment and where he'd normally just drive to his next appointment and wait, he decided to come home and read. Twice. (He doesn't take the book with him because he knows I'd have his head if he ever lost it or got it dirty.)
It's cracking me up. He loves the Harry Potter books almost as much as I do, but I never expected him to read at work or race home for 20 minutes so he could get a few more pages in. It's kind of cute.
I just hope he finished the damned thing SOON because I'm going to burst soon if I don't get to discuss this with him.
