Read 150 pages last night to finish the book. I cried through most of it. Made reading quite difficult, what with all the tears in my eyes and the constant wiping of my face. I had an idea the book might end this way but it was still a jolt. Anyone who wishes to write me and discuss HP is welcome.
Had to watch the new "Surreal Life" to recover. Bronson Pinchot is rather creepy!
