WooooooHooooo! HP and the Half Blood Prince!

Harry Potter comes out tomorrow!!! I have a copy preordered and the Borders bookstore here is releasing the books at midnight! I'll definitely be going over there tonight, and probably reading till like 4:00 AM. 8)

I just re-read #5 in preparation for HBP!

I want HBP really bad, but don't know if I will actually go to the bookstore at midnight. A 42yo. guy without a kid in line for Harry Potter? I know tons of adults love the books, but I just feel kinda pathetic getting it at midnite!

I'll report in later, let you know if I get it at midnite or first thing Saturday morning.

Please, NO SPOILERS in this thread!

I thought about getting it at midnight, but I think I'll just wait till Saturday morning. My reading ability at night is not very good.

corvuscorax, you can always say you are buying it for your kid as a suprise and you didn't think it was appropriate to keep your son/daugther up this late and subject them to the craziness of it all.

I'm leaving in an hour to go to Spain and I'll be in London around 5:30-7:30 AM. No chance of getting the book in America, but I'm *hopeing* some store in Heathrow Airport will be open and I can buy the unedited Brittish version

Fibbing about it would be even more pathetic!

Ruby, I think "Pottermania" is even bigger in the U.K., I bet the book is all over the place in Heathrow!

the local book store in my area is also having a midnight release party but only to the people who preordered it. i being one of them was very happy to hear this but i had already made plans to go to my cottage for the weekend and i now i have to wait till sunday!!! i am sooo mad at myself for doing this because i cant even buy it where i am going because i already had it preordered. i have read the books over and over again i hope this one takes me more than 2 days to read though i whipped through the 5th one like it was 10 pages long. if there are any big potterfans in this thread they should check out www.mugglenet.com. it is a really good site for current news on anything potter. they even had a countdown meter that was like 200 days before the book came out. lol i watch it everyday to see when my copy would be coming out

Don't worry about being old and liking Harry Potter. I got book 5 at midnight at Wal Mart. No Pre Order, and it was almost exclusively older people unlike at most of the book stores. I won't be doing that for book 6, I've got too much to do right now. But it's an idea for another time and don't worry about being old and liking HP, there are plenty of people who are addicts and aren't children.
