The Harry Potter Book - Page 2

post #31 of 57
Thread Starter 
Oh, and I forgot to mention. Someone in front of me in line told me to get the box the books came in because they sold theirs on EBay for $50 last book release. I thought that was crazy. I went ahead and asked for one and sure enough there are all ready 2 on Ebay this morning.

I picked mine up last night, it took about an hour till my number was called, then about 5 minutes in line to buy it. Took it home, and read the first 2 chapters.

Mine was just delivered. I am going to unsubscribe from this thread because I am scared of spoilers - the book is safely locked away in the safe until my departure date, thats when I plan to read it on the plane to while away the time! What a perfect way to spend a flight!

I actually bought a 4th for a patient who may not survive the month - has melanoma that has metatisized (so pls send her good vibes!!) - and brought it to her right away. She is alkready on page 88 according to an email she sent me! I ao on page 43.

I love Dumbledore!! The scene in the Dursley's living room is priceless.

I am trying to pace myself, but it's hard. Will read some more this afternoon.

Picked it up at midnight, finished it at 2pm. Fabulous book, can't wait for the last one. That's all I'm saying...... no spoilers here.

The mailman delivered it at 1 p.m. CET ("Harry's here!), and I finished it about 20 minutes ago. No comment until at least tomorrow. I was less surprised than I expected to be.

Well I am only at the beginning still - so much to do, lol - but am going back to it. Harry and Aldus are still together talking to that fellow I think will be a new teacher (NOT a spoiler - everyone knows there is always a new Teacher of the Dark Arts, lol)

I am still t beginning!! Work keeps interupting - am on page 78. I like it thus far! No surprises yet. You know, I cannot imagine someone starting in the middle of the series tho!

I don't know about that - It took me 7 hours to read 607 pages.

Just got an email that mine was sent out this morning.. I can't wait to get it!!!!! AHHHHH! lol
post #50 of 57
Mine arrived at 11:30 this morning! I've only read the first 10 chapters so far, but that's because I keep taking breaks to do other things. I'm going to read most of the day tomorrow!! I'm loving it so far (but there was no doubt there!).
post #51 of 57
We got ours as well. I won the toss of the coin and get to read it first. One stipulation, I can't talk about it while I am reading it. I sat down and finally had to stop on page 168- so far I love it!
post #52 of 57
I cant wait to get mine, this is a real hit!
post #53 of 57
If I go and buy this book I know that I will read it constantly until its finished - I do not have time to do this, so I am too scared to go and buy it
post #54 of 57
I've not started it yet, it's in it's special place beside my bed ready for when I have time to start it.. I just know I won't be able to stop!!
post #55 of 57
Went and picked mine up this afternoon. I was working on a project for a sick friend, so I didn't start reading until this evening.
post #56 of 57
Picked up two yesterday morning! (one for my Sis!) There were a lot left - despite it being our 24 hour Asda!
Haven't really got time to read it yet, though, so it's sitting safely under my desk!

Like Kellye, I thought about "saving" it for a long flight, but figured I couldn't wait to read it. I cut down on my sleep/leisure time in advance, in order to reserve a day to read it. Today I went back and read "HP and the Order of the Phoenix", in order to check out some theories I have based on the latest book. Right now, I'm in a state of "HP OD".
