On Midnight Harry Potter Parties

I’m about 50-50 on deciding whether or not to go to the Barnes & Noble Harry Potter midnight party.

On the one hand, I think the party might be a fantastic place to meet single women. Harry Potter as conversation starter.

On the other hand, there are going to be children there, children up well past their bedtimes. Urgh.

The gripping hand is that I simply don’t need the book that urgently. It’s going in my TBR pile whether I buy it tonight or tomorrow or the week after next; I’m on a writing deadline, so that’s the priority in my life right now.

Hmm. What to do. What to do. 🙂
