I went at midnight, pretty much knew I would!

Actually went at about 11:30, I was #376 in line! 8O

They started selling books at 12, and I got mine at 1am. This was a Barnes & Noble, they had their act together. Called people up in groups of 25, and did basically 400 transactions between 12 and 1, which is pretty efficient.

Later folks, back to the book!

I am reading the books to my daughter, 7....and I am enjoying them as well....I have yet to buy the sixth book (we will not need it for a few weeks as we are just starting the Goblet of Fire), but since it seems to be selling cheap ($19 CDN) right now, I will probably pick it up sometime this coming week.

Picked mine up, couldn't resist even though I probably should have. Took the day off from my hectic schedule and read it. I liked the book, that's all I'll say.

They are....Goblet of Fire comes out in November, Order of the Phoenix is due out in November 2007, Half Blood Prince in November 2008, and the last movie is planned for a November 2009 release.....and a good thing, too, as the actors protraying the primary characters will be getting a tad mature by 2009.

Which book was it that someone was supposed to die in? I remember all that hype a couple years ago but I don't remember which book.

HP and the Order of the Phoenix has a death at the end of the book which is what everyone was talking about, but the newest book has a lot of tragedy in it. It is very dark and really intense. But then again, i realise, that it has been getting darker as "you-know-who" got stronger and i think J.K. Rowling really did an awesome job on the most recent book. I finished the book yesterday after buying it from Walmart at 2 am and you can see in this thread:

my initial response was shock .. LOL, but as i said, i am well past denial and on my way to acceptance. It was really good, i enourage people of all ages to read the series. I have never been so involved in a book series before (even Star Wars!) And i look forward to the movies, although they are nothing compared to the books. (i was a little dissapointed that "THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN" Left soo much out)

Well, at least I know that Harry, Hermionie and Ron live after Order of the Phoenix, so I know they didn't die in that book.
