First stop on my tour of Potter parties bring us to Borders here in Las Vegas.
It's my first choice.. as the closest big store near my house, and usually a quiet location to take the laptop, browse what's new in book marketing and promotion, and connect through the T-Mobile hotspot connection.
Tonight, there are 4 times the heaviest traffic I've seen here, and about 3 times as noisy as the Potter party I attended in 2005. I've snapped a few photos that will be uploaded here, and will now move on to the Barnes & Nobles.
More stores having more parties.. lots of people standing in line.. and just like a lot of the Internet Marketing launches these days.. a BIG COUNTDOWN SIGN at the front of this store.
