I got my copy at the local grocery store when I went there last night, I'll have to find the time to start reading it soon.

I'm now just working on getting this one signed - all the others are signed and 2 are pre-press editions, so I'm working on a high value collection - it's just getting harder to do as my wife no longer works along side J.K.'s sister, and my sister-in-law no longer runs Waterstone's Edinburgh.

Durnit!

A big box of these books busted while a coworker was loading it into a FedEx truck about 3 days before it came out. One guy said he was gonna steal a box and sell them on ebay.

That would have to be a very quick auction. A combination of being shut down if caught, along with getting the money / book exchanged before it would be released. It would not be very practical.

Now, if it were, say two weeks before release, then he might have done well.

Well he ain't too bright so I don't think he thought out the details too much.

We'll save you from reading 800 pages to find out who died in the new Harry Potter book. It was xxxxx.
Those of you who are interested in not having the book spoiled, do not read this week's (July 2) Onion's Infographic, ``Pottermania Yet Again''. They give it away, too. I don't know if it's true, but whether it is or not, it'll distract you from your reading experience.

Assholes.

Greetings!

If you are referring to the July 2nd issue, all of the information contained there is spoof data. I will not say anything more than that for fear of spoiling anything. So, if you saw The Onion, you have not been spoiled. Still annoying, though...

That's just as bad. You still read the book with that in the back of your head. And now you've told me who doesn't die. See? Any information is a buzzkill.

Actually, I said nothing of the sort. In fact, I said nothing at all other than the data on that image was not valid. The specific line you are referring to reveals that character X dies on page Y. That should neither confirm nor deny X or Y. Just that X and Y is false.

I agree, though. Having that in the back of your mind while reading is annoying. It is difficult, though. The more time passes, the more likely that there will be more information posted publicly, accurate or not.

OK, so I just finished the book. I didn't clock my time, but I started on Thursday afternoon and finished early this morning (about 1:30 am). I thought is was good, but not my favorite of the series. I suppose I still like the more "innocent" tone of the first book and some of the friction between characters in this one got a little old. It wasn't as "dark" as I feared (I don't know why I keep taking reviews so seriously), and honestly I enjoyed the political friction. I won't say any more so as to ruin the story, but it's a good read.
