I have, and I am picking up my copy on Saturday afternoon and reading it when I get home from my local University BookStore in Downtown Bellevue.

I have to admit, despite of my age, that I am a Harry Potter fan. The biggest English book shop here in Zurich will sell the first copies at Saturday 0101 (this is 0001 UK time). I probably be there any buy one (as I did the last time).  Wink

It seems like the people who hate the book are the ones who haven't read it, or seen the movie...it's pathetically stupid.

Anyway, after getting that point across, I pre-ordered mine, and can't wait to get it  Smile.

Haven't gone for the pre-order. I will just head in to the shops and buy one on Saturday.

On a side issue, how many here think Harry's days are numbered. The way I read the last one (order of phoenix) was that Voldermalt's death is linked to Harry's? Any Ideas?

My wife and kids are planning on being at Wal-Mart at midnight when it comes out. We've been arguing about who gets to read it first. What they don't understand is I'm paying for the damn thing so I'm reading it first.

I believe that J.K. Rowling is the Mark Twain and William Shakespeare of today. In a hundred years from now she will be a literary giant that will be required reading at all places of higher education.
Now that I'm thinking about it, I'm off to read the last one again. Just to get in the mood for Friday.

Hopefully not. She tells a good story, but her writing is pretty bad IMHO.

I definitely have a copy pre-ordered. I am currently living in a house with 6 other Harry Potter fans, so I decided to go ahead and order my own copy, cause otherwise I would have to wait in line to read it. It should be here Saturday, says amazon.com, and they better be right. Right now, I am re-reading the rest of the series in preparation.

14 copies of new Harry Potter book sold by accident; Canadian court orders readers mum

Tuesday, July 12, 2005

ASSOCIATED PRESS


COQUITLAM, British Columbia - A handful of people in Canada got a sneak peak of the latest Harry Potter book, but a British Columbia Supreme Court judge ordered them to keep it a secret.

The book was sold to 14 people who snagged a copy of J.K. Rowlings' much anticipated "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," when it landed on shelves last Thursday at a local grocery store.

I've been to that store and it doesn't surprise me. The place is just a big great mess, cheap place to get your photos developed though!

My wife has started bugging me now about the book and has seeded doubt in my mind that there will be enough copies to go round come nine am SYD time.

I see some conflicting times here, The UK get it at midnight, SYD at nine am, what time is the official US opening?

14 people in Coquitlam BC already got their copies. Apparently, one of the Superstores accidently put them on the floor the other day. Before they realized the mistake, 14 copies were sold. The funny thing is that there was a court order in the newspaper today stating that the people who purchased the copies, will be breaking the law and fined if they disclose any information of the book, talk about the book or even read the book until the 16th ....  rotfl 

On a lighter note, the same Judge also said that if the people bring back the book, they will have it returned, autograhed by JK Rowling along with a Harry Potter gift set.

Me too. Pre-ordered through Barnes and Noble.com. It'll arrive while I'm in Chicago, though I don't plan to read it until I'm on vacation in August.

Just the thing to get me in the mood for going to Hogwar.. Erm... Seminary in the fall.
