Cool! I hold cautious optimism for the film (Order of the Phoenix is my favorite of the books, so I hope it doesn't get totally mauled in cinematic form,) and I look forward to the final book!
Thanks for the update, biggrin

Cool...

Though, seeing as it probably won't take place at the school (according to the end of 'Half-Blood Prince'). And Harry will be searcing for the final Horcruxes...

I'm sure it'll make quite an interesting book. Thanks for the information!

I'm gonna go reserve my copy tomorrow. That way, I'll get a better spot in line, and spend less time at the midnight release by my....self. What a life I lead.

Heh, people are proactive like that, too... people think that they're clever and witty by beating everyone before the lines begin (i.e. reserving a copy). By then, they'll probably all be sold out...

But you know, people DO seem to act differently... I guess.... sometimes...-ish....

Haha! As soon as I saw that topic I rushed over to borders.com and preordered copy. I was never one for waiting in lines.

You know what's sad? I work at Barnes & Noble, and I found out the release date through my customer emails.

By "customer emails" I mean the emails sent with coupons and book news for Barnes & Noble shoppers.

In other words, the customers found out before the employees.

I reserved my copy of Half Blood Prince a few weeks after it was announced, and was in line for like 2 hours, so no matter what, I'll get a better spot.

It shouldn't happen like that. Generally speaking, when you reserve a copy, it guarantee's you a book. But if you just show up, your not really guaranteed anything. I don't know of any pre-orders that haven't worked like that.

I still wish there was a "I haven't cared since I was like 12" option in the poll, and there isn't even a poll.

I am anticipating both the film and the book. However, I wish the film was released near Christmas.

Living in Australia rocks!

9am (Midnight GMT)! No midnight line up for us!

I've been near the start of the line for the last two and I turned up at 8:30am

Hmmm... I'll be in London on the 21st... Might go to a midnight one smile

My logic is that if they haven't read the books, would they be caring to read this thread? smile

Scholastic just announced the book to be 784 pages long, which is the second longest book in the series [behind OotP].

that's good news. I was really disappointed when Half Blood Prince was like 650 pages. Order of the Phoenix was perfect length though, hopefully this one is too.

I love you, Aculag. Your sarcasm never ceases to amaze.

Either way, Potter dies in this one. Hermione is forced to kill him because of....can't really say exactly, not yet..............something to do with the pinseeve.

I still say Harry is the final horcrux, in which case, of course he dies, because it's the only way to totally kill Voldemort. That is the best ending, other than Ron or Hermione (or both!) teaming up with Voldemort and killing Harry. That'd be awesome. Then they burn down Hogwarts.

I talked to JK personally and she said the ending is similar to Potter Puppet Pals when they kill voldie with machine guns.

I literally hate when anyone uses the word "literally" when they aren't literally saying something.

For example:
Bad = "My head LITERALLY exploded because I laughed so hard!"
Good = "I LITERALLY burned down the gas station."

The example of Good only applies if the person actually did burn down the gas station.

It seemed short to me too, but it's funny seeing somebody say "Man, that was only 650 pages long?!?"

There was another thread with a discussion over the meaning of literally. I think it was the one where Ben and Atom were talking about Cover's Story getting into a Texas magazine, but I haven't been able to find it in any searches.

Anyway... back to Harry Potter
