    Hi,

    My daughter and I will be there Friday night. We’d like to buy two books (Harry Potter, natch) at midnight. Do I need to make a reservation for the two? Thanks for letting me know.

    Best,

    Mike McCune

    Hi Mike,
    Glad you guys are going to get in on the fun. I didn’t see anything indicating you need a reservation. But, the best thing to do is call Readers’ at 707-939-1779 to make sure.
    Thanks,
    Veronica
