Me and my babies in the Toys 'R' Us at Times Square, 11:32 p.m., July 15, 2005. They let the first wave of people in about ten minutes later, and the Scholastic staff gathered near the front window at 11:55 to watch the countdown on the Times Square JumboTron, ticking off the last 30 seconds aloud, exactly like New Year's Eve. It was so cool to watch people run for the books, get them, clutch them to their chests -- their babies now -- then flip them open and read desperately, as if the words were air. Posted by Picasa
