With Book 7, Deathly Hallows, about to land 784 pages us I wanted a place to talk about it, and I thought maybe some other people do too? I read books 4, 5, and 6 with fandom as they were published and each time I was a little sad I wasn't sitting in a room reading with [ profile] praetorianguard or [ profile] unanon or the rest of you. So I created a virtual porch for us all to hang out on.

Come join [ profile] discuss_book7!!

Membership is moderated so that the replies don't need to be. Come chat about the book here before the release. The chapter discussions will open when the books go on sale.

If this works the way I hope - readers can use it to chat with other readers while we're all still reading and without spoiling each other.

Please share the link?! The more the merrier!

Ari! Are you still in Boston, O long-lost one? I'm moving to New Haven in a month to attend Yale Law!

HEY! I was wondering how you are! I'm in NYC right now. We are moving back to Cambridge/Boston in the fall now that I am done with grad school.

Congrats on Yale! That is huge! My friend went to Harvard, but he was wistful about Yale. They waitlisted him. :(

Niiice! What degree did you get? We should meet for coffee in Boston at some point in the fall! I'm going to be up there visiting a friend, though we haven't figured out when yet.

We won't land there until late October probably. We're trying to buy a condo/apartment.

I have a very useful Masters of Fine Arts in writing. O_o

I already friended you. It was a weird transition that happened when I started grad school and got married. Then I barely posted for over a year and now I am back. :D

I totally forgot that you got married! I think you were still engaged when I dropped off the face of LJ earth.

And then I sort of dropped off the face of the lj world as well. I was so busy with school and teaching and writing that there was just no time for anything else at all. And when I did try to rejoin the lj world I got caught in the center of really unpleasant fandom wankstorm and I gave up again.

Ew, wankstorms. Haven't missed those. Where are you teaching?

I'm not teaching right now. Though once we move to Boston I will be teaching again I hope, either at one of the universities or one of the writing schools.

I was teaching at a NYC public school one day a week last year and this year I was teaching at a local college.

Elia and I will think of you as we're reading in her living room in New Jersey!

I wish we were going to be here in NYC because I could make plans to see you! We will be in Vermont. :(
