July 21, 2007 was the greatest day of my life - the day that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was released. My friends and I got to the bookstore at noon. We made a little campsite, got dressed up, decorated, and did all kinds of other fun stuff. No one else even came to get in line until at least 6 p.m., but it was so much fun that it didn't even matter. All the Barnes and Noble employees thought we were hilarious and kept coming outside to chat with us. They even gave us a Harry Potter cardboard cutout to take home with us after we bought our books at exactly 12:01.
