I work at a Borders and we had to sign contracts saying we wouldn't open, touch or look at the book before the 21st at midnight, when we start selling the motha
For Harry Potter I would break that muthafuckin contract if I were you.
To be honest, I'm so sick of hearing about Harry Potter at this point. I really like the books, but that is the only word anyone utters when they come into the store. I really want people to talk about something else. Anything. But, I am working our event for it, so I'll get to see all the people dressed to the nines. It should be interesting.
My mom dressed like Professor Quirrell for one of those book release parties, either for Book 5 or Book 6. She's recovering from knee surgery this weekend though.
789. Damn. If I were Mr. Nipples that fat woman would be staring you down right now.
Well I now know what happens at the end. Look around in the thread, the answer is there.
Just finished reading the thing.
Hate the hype about it. I mean, it's just a book.
I ended up reading all of Book 6 last night. So now I am prepared for this evening.
Amy I sent you a pm dont know why you didnt bother with it.
I got your PM, supre, but I don't know if I can read it like that. I'm at work now, I will be on the road tonight, and I will be on the road tomorrow. I don't have a laptop.
Aaaah ok, yeah well its something at least. Guess you gotta buy your copy here tomorrow. I say you can finish it before doors open for the show.
Supre, I appreciate the gesture. Thanks. I might try buying my copy before I leave tomorrow.
Yeah, that should be fun, teenage kids mixed with insane parents who ditched work to wait in line all night, who would do such things? I know Harry Potter fans!! I was reading one article in the paper and this mom was going to buy a copy for each member of her family. She has 4 kids, so 6 copies, yeeesh. Quote: "There will be ABSOLUTELY no sharing"
I definitely need my sleep tonight. No Harry Potter party for me.
Sounds like the Hi Chris! thread for me.
Everyone will be Harry and Hermione. Be Dobby. Wear a potato sack.
Okay, last minute theorizing:
R.A.B. is obviously Romulus Black or whatever. I knew that from the end of the last book (and I think we discussed it on the old board). So that's one Horcrux in the bag. Boom.
I think Snape is still on the "good" side. When Harry was yelling at him that he was a coward and Snape was getting pissed, I think that it was indicative of the fact that Snape is doing the most difficult thing of all, didn't want to kill Dumbledore, is stuck in the Unbreakable Vow, etc. I don't think he was getting upset because he is a coward...I think it was because of the opposite.
Last minute predictions:
Harry kills Voldemort.
Some other people die.
Neville kills Bellatrix Lestrange.
Neville eats Bellatrix's corpse.
There will not be much in the way of Quidditch.
Okay, midnight here we come. I will be giving a play-by-play as I read through the night. Because I am that cool.
i'll give an update maybe from the store. if not, i'll post pictures and thoughts tomorrow because i'll be done with it all tonight.
andrew, i would be someone else but i have a gryffindor robe that i got for halloween a couple of years ago.
