Harry Potter 7: Best reason to buy it at Costco

Why buy “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows” at Costco? Because you can get these sweet boxes to carry your booze.

Also, I scratch my head at the people who line up to buy the book on the first night. One Twitter friend told me that at Porter Square in Cambridge MA, there was a 500+ line at the Barnes & noble, while the CVS next door, also stocking the book, had no line.

I understand the appeal of joining a Harry Potter party and joining in the celebration, but if you just want to buy the book… well, I don’t do lines.

  1. That’s a funny box 😉 Love it! Also, heard on the radio this morning that Kroger was selling the book at 40% off. So wait a few days, save a few bucks.

  2. I always order mine from dear old Amazon, which delivered it promptly with the Sat am mail. My 7 year old son collected the mail that day, and informed the neighborhood, “Mom your Harry Potter’s here.” And then quietly to me, “that was smart Mom so you didn’t have to wait in line”

    I don’t do lines well.
