Fess-Up - Have you/are you going to buy it...?

Have you or are you going to buy the new Harry Potter book?

We all want to know.

My wife already ordered one and it is being delivered to our house on Saturday morning.

My wife ordered it months ago. We expect that it will be delivered over the weekend or by Monday at the latest.

If you knew us, you would not be surprised at this.

Lurkette and I will probably wade through hip-deep children to buy a copy this weekend.

That said, it may not be that bad. The day the last one was out, she sauntered into our local Barnes & Noble, walked up to the HUGE stack of books, grabbed one, and walked straight over to checkout. Hardly a soul in sight, she said.

I reserved it at our local Barnes & Noble.
The saleslady told me they were having a Harry Potter party a couple of hours before Midnight. *ugh*
Then I find out there was a murder in Barnes & Noble, and now I just don't know what I'll do.
Who kills someone in a Barnes & Noble? *sheesh!*

I'm most definately going to buy it!!!!!!

I'm soo excited about the book...I feel kinda silly ...I'm that excited!

Some of the local book stores are hosting overnight parties but I doubt I'll go...I'd be like the only adult...sounded kinda neat though..my favorite book store is going to have a life size shadow of Hadgid for people to compare themselves to.
I just finished the 4th book last night for the 2nd time...(I wanted to have the books fresh in my mind for the new one)
I work with an 82 year old woman and she's just as excited as I am about the new book....these books seem to cross the age gap that's for sure

So by definition, you suddenly fell onto the floor, in the store, in to a nap?

Did you actually read it, or just skim it?

Genre just dosn't excite me. I am still working on a back log of hunderds of years of classics to be distracted by some latest fad.

I think I might just read them all when the series is finished. (are there any more coming?) That way I won't have to wade through any media hype and hysteria. And I can just borrow all of my sister's copies.

<b>Macheath</b>, there are two more after this one.

<b>BBtB</b>,these books which are released at a very slow pace (3yrs since last one) do not distract me from the pile of non-fiction that I have to read. That distraction comes easily from sleep, TV, computer...

it holds absolutely no interest to me. i've seen the whole damn hype machine up and running since the first one broke big, but a book about some punk-ass kid sorcerer dosen't turn my wheels. i've read lots of fantasy books, so i've seen my way around the genre, but the harry potter series just holds no interest.

Got it!

Now I just have to wait for Molly to finish reading it so I can jump in.

Remarkably, we got the 1st copy at the store since we'd reserved a copy. Lots of grumpy folks ahead of us who had to go to the back of the line.
Bwahahaha.


Oh, and it's Trevor that dies.
