    On the Barnes and Noble website, 

    under the book The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood, is my very first review (name is pixie-girl)!  It’s my 7th adventure. I hadn’t ever really thought about doing it,  but this year I decided to give it a go.  The publishing class I took last semester brought me back to books, and the ALA Midwinter meeting garnered me over 30 free books – advanced reader copies and uncorrected proofs.  So the time seemed right, and right to start with Atwood, my favorite author.  Looking forward to making this more of a regular event, not just a one-time adventure!

    And the 6th – I went to Hogwarts 

    Who knew it was at the Museum of Science?  And I thought I liked the V&A in London.  The Harry Potter Exhibition was quite possibly the most brilliant thing I have done or will do in this town.  A mostly self-directed tour of the wonders of the Harry Potter world, the exhibit was filled with the creatures, props, and costumes used in the films.  A lot of what my friend Kim and I saw were in The Goblet of Fire, so that film now has a special place in my heart.  I wanted to try on Hermione’s Yule Ball gown in the worst way – I’m sure it would’ve fit.  I pulled up a Mandrake, threw a Quaffle through a hoop, sat in Hagrid’s big chair, which was really huge, and heard the Fat Lady sing!  There was so much I can’t even remember it all.  But it was brilliant – if only I didn’t have to come back…
