Harry By the Sea 

The post title was the title of one of my favorite childhood books (which I still have, by the way), but that's not what I'm talking about here.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was delivered to my waiting hands by an efficient, doorbell-ringing UPS driver at 8:14 this morning. It was in a custom Amazon box, clearly labeled as to its contents and clearly marked that it was to be neither delivered nor opened until today. The shipping invoice was generic, with a note to check my e-mail confirmation for details. This enabled them to get them all boxed and on their way to customers in a rapid fashion. Apparently they also arranged for UPS and other delivery service drivers to be working from the early hours of the morning.

So it arrived in time for my trip to the beach today after all. Harry and I are going to the sea!!!!
