The New York Daily News had an article yesterday which gave away the plot and some other things (they got a 'hot' copy at a health food store in Brooklyn).

Today the author and Schoolastic, the publisher, are suing them for tens of millions of dollars.

Serves them right - stupid rag tag...

I totally agree with you. I think sometimes I am an author's favorite reader because I am so willing to suspend my disbelief and go light on the criticisms...LOL...i just love books too much to be mean to them!!!

Anyway, after reading this thread I decided YES I WILL be getting the book this weekend. (along with tickets to the radiohead show in cleveland in august!! anyone else going to that??? what a weekend for things to go on sale!!! YAY!!!)

I'm insanely excited for this book. We're talking not sleeping at night excited.

All this and I haven't yet figured out if there's any earthly way I can purchase a copy this week. I'm a nutcase.

TGIF!
Woohay! Thanks Ant There's a few interesting things in there, which oddly enough match some things I've been thinking myself.
I had to go out all of this morning, but I think I'll be heading out shortly to track a copy down somewhere. I cant believe I'm going out especially for a book. 1 book.






Actually, I can....

Amazon will deliver it to my front door tomorrow (saturday). Unfortunately, I am working, so I won't have time to read it right away, but I'm excited nonetheless.

I've only read the first Harry Potter book, and I thought it was charming. I want to read the other books but I'll have to put it on my list of things to do...!

My sister and brother-in-law are going to be at their local bookstore at midnight to buy the new one. My borther-in-law started reading the series after 9/11, and he found them to be a good mental escape during a sad and scary time. My siser then read them all and loved them...now she's trying to talk my dad into reading them!

All this Harry hoopla makes me wish I still worked at Borders. When "Goblet of Fire" came out we had a breakfast for people who'd pre-ordered the book and three hundred people showed up! (Over 700 customers had pre-ordered, but we had to limit the attendees at the breakfast--other Borders stores in the area didn't get nearly as big a response to their morning events.) There were events all day and night, and our customers were in such happy, almost giddy moods. It was the happiest day I ever spent working there.

Happy reading, Harry fans!!!

My lil sis has it on order...I have an exam on Wednesday so I won't be able to read it until then.

Basically, I told my sis she has until then to finish it cause after that IT'S MINE!

And I DO want spoilers. Who dies???

I'm not a fan, but I read on a website who dies. I might actually go screaming down the street later yelling the name.

I've only read a hundred or so pages so far, I keep getting interrupted lol. I had another theory Ant, and I forgot to pm you back, but its a good thing I didn't cos it looks like I was right! So it probably is a good thing I didn't say anything in case its ruined lol.
And I only found this out cos I was walking back to the car after I bought it and stupidly opened at a random page and of course something significant was happening. Argh!
