Tonight is the beginning of the end for children and childish adults across the world. The final installment of the Harry Potter book series goes on sale at midnight, and is expected to smash sales records. According to the Guardian, itís also expected to smash childrenís fragile emotions, exposing them to the grief that comes along with the death of imaginary literary friends (although they havenít leaked who gets the axe).
Virtually every bookstore in Seattle is trying to get in on the wizard action, throwing Harry Potter parties with games, trivia, bands, and prizes. At first the plan was to compile a list of all the bookstores with events tonight, but as it turned out, all of them are, so the choice is yours where you want to spend Friday night wearing a pointy hat and holding a wand.
