What are you reading on vacation?

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Where did you get it?

My mom bought it in a bookstore in Tokyo the minute it went on sale.

How much did it cost?

I don't know, my mom bought it. [US$30 for the American edition]

What prompted you to read it?

I'm crazy about Harry Potter! I made my mom find a store where we could buy it, because we missed the midnight party at the Depot [in Duluth]. My mom says we got our book four hours before my friends at home. I wanted to call them up and tell them.

How are you liking it?

It's great! I made my mom and dad take breaks while walking around Tokyo, so that I could sit and read it.

Are you reading anything else?

A Star Wars book.

What do you plan to read next?

More Star Wars books.
