well, it's 1237 Sat morning here & the latest Harry Potter will be released at 9.01 & I will pick up my copy sometime tomorrow cos I don't think I have time to get it today. My alarm will ring in 6 hours (eek!!) then it's rush out into a very full Saturday.

I'll probably try to fit in picking it up so I can read it Sunday, but as I'm on holidays this week, I have a choice of 5 complete days to devote to it cos I intend to finish it in one day, like all other fiction I read. I'm a fast reader, & can't bear to close a book before finishing it.

Okay, here's some excerpts:

        Harry gazed up and greater fear than he'd ever known before in his life stabbed through him. At the same time his scar blazed with such pain that he collapsed, staring up at the sign swinging in the gentle breeze, the sign reading "Malfoy, Crabbe, and Goyle, Attorneys-At-Law."

        "Of course there are girls upstairs at the Three Broomsticks! Why do you think they call her MADAME Rosemurta, anyway?" asked George incredulously.

        "Harry," said Hermione quietly, "these tests don't lie. You have to face the fact that Severus Snape is your father."
        
       "For God's sake, Weasley," drawled Malfoy, "roll off her and let Crabbe show you how it's done."
        
        When Snape had his back turned again, Hermione whispered to Ron, "You know, you can stir around in my cauldron anytime."

        She flicked her long black wand against her tight leather pants and purred, "It's MISTRESS Ginny, Potter, MISTRESS Ginny. Now get down on your belly and beg Mistress's forgiveness like a good little worm."

        McGonigle pointed her wand at Dumbledore and shouted "Viagra!"
        
        "Great man, Dumbledore," murmured Hagrid. "A bit of a twit, but a great man all the same."

        "Ah, Harry," said Hermione, looking pale. "You know the other night...and, well, I got the spell wrong...and, oh, Harry, you were right! You were right! The words WERE 'Contra Ceptio' and not 'Pro Ceptio.' What are we going to do?! Harry?.. Harry?"

        "Harry," whispered Angelina, "why don't you let me show you some positions you won't find on the Quidditch field?"

        "Sorry, Malfoy," grinned Harry. "I thought it was the snitch. You know, you really should either wear underwear or fasten your robes when you play Quidditch or accidents like this will happen."

J K Rowling read the first chapter live at Edinburgh Castle last night, at midnight. The place was packed with thousands of children who just sat, totally silent, totally entranced through it...

Tell me another book that has that effect on children... most can't sit still through a commercial, yet you could have heard a wand drop in Edinburgh last night....

Looking forward to reading it myself, but even at £4.49 (Safeway/Morrisons), I'll wait for the paperback to come.

Last night my son and his friends dressed up as characters from Harry Potter and went to the local Barnes and Noble. Because my son has very long curly hair Click here I used a hot iron to straighten his hair (length went to between his shoulder blades). He sprayed his hair white with costume hairspray, dressed all in black and wore a floor length black robe and black gloves - adult Malfoy. His friend tea-dyed two pillowcases sewed together so they looked dirty, got elf ears from the costume store, and went as Dobbie. They did it just for the fun of it, not knowing there would be a costume contest at the store. They both won the contest.

Found the book in his room this morning and read the last page. Yes, the last three words are "Ron and Hermione".

Thank you, J. K. Rawlings, for motivating our children to read.

Whether the child reads the book themselves or has the book read to them, it promotes literacy. One of the best things about the books is that both parent and child can enjoy the story. Doesn't matter who reads it, spending time on a daily basis with any book promotes literacy. Rawlings has done a fine job of writing a novel that captures the imagination.

So the pope thinks that Harry Potter, "...corrupts the hearts of the young, preventing them developing a sense of good and evil."

I think that the Harry Potter series does a very good job of developing a sense of good and evil. I think Ratslinger is afraid that kids know more about HP than about JC. What does he suggest they read, the bible?

Mine arrived yesterday around 7:50am. The look on the face of our post lady showed she was prepared for a long day.

I've been apportioning it out to myself, trying to make it last. But has anyone beside me noticed that the print on this book is larger than on the last two?? In other words, the publisher has tried to make it look bigger than it really is.

Shame that...but it won't stop me from enjoying every word. I just hope Rowling isn't going to make us all wait another two years for the last one...but I bet she does.

I'm #49 on the waiting list at the public library, but I discovered that they have about a dozen copies "available" on the seven day loan shelf. Surely I can read it in 7 days? (I'm happy to read that it has larger print, Ellenpoly.)

The library opens again at 10:00 a.m., Monday. I wonder how many other people will be waiting for the doors to open and how difficult it will be to trip them all?

The local Barnes and Noble made an event around the release of the newest HP. They had magicians and face painting...stayed open extra late so copies could be sold at 12:01am. Maybe it sounds like a lot of hype to some of you but I've seen a 10 year old boy counting the days down until he could read this book...when is the last time you saw a child so excited to read that they were counting the days until they could read a new book? I'm sorry but I think this is a great thing...and if it takes all the secrecy and hype...so be it.

The 10 year old has a 13 year old sister who refuses to read anything. The mother has tried everything with the girl and has decided to do whatever it takes to get the younger one interested in reading. So for now, it's Fantastic 4 comic books and Harry Potter....he's reading...without being asked to, told to or otherwise coerced into it....HE IS READING AND LOVING IT! That's the bottom line, isn't it?

BTW....mother and son went to Barnes and Noble 7 hours early....and spent the time reading TOGETHER....excellent!!!!!!!!!

Tsk, tsk, Tam. I certainly hope you're not serious. Books -- actually the recording of knowledge -- is what seperates us from the rest of the animals. We can pass on the knowledge we gain so others don't have to make the same mistakes over and over (assuming always that they're smart enough to learn). And there is a lot of good in the Potter books, if nothing else than dealing with the fears of humans.

£4.49 at Morrissons? I thought Tesco was almost reasonable at £7.97 compared with list price of £16.99 and major bookshop price of just over a tenner. Considering a paperback of that size would have a list price between £7 and £9 I went for Tesco's offer. Plenty in stock on Saturday afternoon.

It was less turgid than Order of the Phoenix but still not a patch on the earlier novels.

definately worth a re-read. I thought the characterizations were back "on-track" - - though I really think this needed a couple ()okay - lots) more chapters or to be split into two books. There were a lot of things that were glossed over that could have been done in MUCH more detail. Among other things - Tonks.

Friday night, 12:01 AMhere in Kansas America, there were a number of Draco Malfoys, Harry Potters, and even a couple of adult Dumbledores--and one creaky old lady running a 102-degree fever (which I didn't know until I got back home) standing in line at the Borders store to pick up our reserved copies. My line-up numbers were 343 and 344. I got my two books at somewhere around 2:00AM.

And I hope I never "grow up" if that means giving up that kind of fun--what a kick to see all the kids, wide-eyed and excited, waiting to find out what happens to their favorite characters next! I had a lovely chat with the 12-year-old and his mother in front of me who had been there all evening (since 9PM) enjoying the party. He was doing his best to talk her into buying two books, so they could both read it right away. But he did not take at all to my suggestion that maybe his mother could read the book to him -- oh, no! He wanted his very own copy and he wanted to read it his very own self.

More power to your pen, Ms. Rowling!!!! Great stuff, but sad in spots; a lot like real life.

And by the way, the first book (before movies or any giant hype) was so successful that Scholastic Books, heretofore a small publishing company, nearly went under trying to meet the demand. So if they want to hype the plot and keep secrets, they've earned it as far as I'm concerned!
