… they’re deathly.
This is the part where people smack their heads, and I laugh.
Anyway, last week I was diverted from working on Stardust and pretty much everything else because I was re-reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Book 6), in preparation for the Saturday release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7, the last one). Now I’m reading Deathly Hallows but sharing it with my wife, so I’m not quite halfway through yet (when Half-Blood Prince came out I had finished it the same weekend it released). She gets to read it while I’m at work, since I probably should be doing some work, and I get to read it when I get home.
