My copy of the latest Harry Potter book didn’t arrive this morning when it was supposed to, even though I’d ordered it back in February from Amazon. A Royal Mail van turned up with a parcel but there was only one and it was for Kat (my old housemate).
I’m very disappointed in both Amazon and Royal Mail – if I’d known this was going to happen I would have queued outside a bookshop last night. Now I’m going to have to become a hermit just to avoid all the reviews and spoilers that are already abound in every kind of media imaginable, not to mention word of mouth. I almost didn’t dare read the papers this morning. This sucks
