Booking through Thursday

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? This Ravenclaw will be reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows the moment it arrives from Amazon.uk. If I don't get it by Saturday, I'll have to hide in my closet to keep from being spoiled.
  1. If so, right away? Or just, you know, eventually, when you get around to it? Are you attending any of the midnight parties? See above. I won't attend parties, but I will talk with my stuffed Hedwigs. It will be a comfort to us both.
  2. If you’re not going to read it, why not?
  3. And, for the record… what do you think? Will Harry survive the series? What are you most looking forward to? I am in the "Snape is a good guy" queue because I trust Dumbledore completely. I think he took Harry on the quest for the Horcrux as a rite of passage, to toughen him and to ensure that he could do anything necessary to vanquish (hiss) Voldemort. It was Harry's Bardo, facing what he feared, and he got through it.

I share your ideas and I can't wait until it gets here. I hop efor your sake your copy arrives on Saturday so you don't have to hide!

You have stuffed Hedwigs? Lucky for you.

I agree with your ideas about Snape. I also think that he was in love with Harry's mother when they were all in school together. But that's because even with all of my cynicism, sometimes I'm a real romantic at heart!

I have a stuffed Hedwig as well :D

I agree with you about Snape. And what Bridget said about him maybe liking Lily makes sense.

I want a stuffed Hedwig! I saw one at Borders the other day and begged my husband for one, but he thought I was joking. I need to go back and get one. Oooh--They better have at least one for me left. They are so cute!

I hope you will enjoy the book! Happy Reading!
