1. Okay, love him or loathe him, you’d have to live under a rock not to know that J.K. Rowling’s final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, comes out on Saturday… Are you going to read it?
2. If so, right away? Or just, you know, eventually, when you get around to it? Are you attending any of the midnight parties?
3. If you’re not going to read it, why not?
4. And, for the record… what do you think? Will Harry survive the series? What are you most looking forward to?
I will be reading it, but not for a while yet! I actually haven't read books 5 and 6 yet! I own them. Part of the reason why I am not in any hurry is that I own all the other books in paperback, so I am going to need to wait for another year at least before I can get the book that matches my set!
Luckily for us, the release time here in Australia is a very dignified 9am on Saturday...no midnight parties here, although there is going to be a large event in one of the public spaces in the city, and when I went to the bookshop today there was a notice saying that they were going to be open 2 hours earlier.
As far as what's going to happen, I think Harry will survive, and I just hope that Ron does as well! Having said that, I am sure that I will know by early next week exactly who did die....people can't seem to stop themselves from sharing those kinds of spoilers.
Just as an aside, I went to Barnes and Noble online today, and there are already 625 reviews up, and the first 5 are all rated 5 stars....hmmm. I thought they were meant to be REviews!
