I didn't want to give anything away which is why you didn't learn anything new. but @ 3:30est I'm half finished with the book so if you have questions inbox them.

I personally won't post spoilers till later on in the afternoon unless someone beats me to it.

i say anybody who tries to drop spoilers outside just to be assholes should get banned or something...

I think it's reasonable to have at a 2 to 3 week grace period before we post spoilers up in here. Either that or someone just make a post with spoilers.


Either way, this post should stay about how we came about getting the book, and info about prior books we'd like to talk about or news about the crazy lines, etc.

or inbo them to people, don't mind me.

I was just acting overly defensive about not getting anything spoiled.

If anyone read what I thought about Harry, I was right about that too. LOL. There are slight differences, probably last minute changes because of the leaked copies but...I would say this was a waste of my money because I had the bootleg but it's all good. There are 66 copies on amazon for sale right now.

I am about to start on the bootleg of the OJ simpson book. I didnt think the bootleg was right to be honest, and some of the chapters were missing...yeah we got home good, I was tired...it was a struggle to get up and go to the mall (thank goodness my boy works at the bookstore, holding it down for a sister). And I skimmed something crazy...I will straight up read it for real tomorrow while I am getting my hair done.

28. "the-leaky-cauldron.org's spoiler policy (no spoilers in this reply)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

i was searching the boards and i thought this was funny.

http://www.the-leaky-cauldron.org/2007/4/28/spoil-us-not-sneaks-a-refresher-on-leaky-s-pre-book-policy

OK peoples. It's just about that time: A few months away from the book. THE book. We're getting a lot of e-mails about spoilers - and not just the kind where you say, "You may not want to read my theory because it's totally a spoiler." Thanks for the warning - we had no idea Snape was a body surfer! Awesome!
Anyway, the books will soon be printed. Sometime in the next few weeks we'll hear all sorts of ridiculous things, such as:

* The book magically appeared in a field ("Phoenix": Remember how the person who found it just happened to call the ever-magnanimous tab "The Sun," who then printed a review that basically read, "Nanny-nanny-poo-poo, we've read it and you haven't"?).
* Or, a bunch of bets for Harry to live / for Harry to die came out of the town where the books are being printed ("Half-Blood Prince": Remember the bets on Dumbly?).
* Even, perhaps, that there was a pistol shootout / watergun showdown / spaghetti-slinging match over stolen copies (again, "Half-Blood Prince." That is, just the pistol part).

And then there are the little spoiler-zone pockets, which crop up in strange places. Last time, a big leak came from a librarian who decided to dig in a few days early and post the results on her journal. Bookstore workers have also been responsible for leaks (though, we understand how working in a store where unopened Potters lurk evilly can be a form of torture acceptable in old-school Salem). Before HBP's release, someone on a military base in Malaysia got hold of the book and scanned in every first chapter page, the summary, and the whole final chapter, and sent it to Leaky. Some staffers were intensely spoiled. Some staffers are still bitter. Some staffers curse this person's name.

The powers that be seem even more prepared for this spoiler scenario this time. There are talks of extreme security measures, of chains and locks and last-minute deliveries.

BRING IT, we say.

Here it is, a refresher on Leaky's spoiler policy:

Ahem.

DON'T DO IT.

Sending us spoilers will get you one place, bucko: sent to Scholastic, Christopher Little, Bloomsbury, and every JoLawyer we can think of. We don't want to see them, we won't post them, and we'd want to stop you. Book revelations aren't to be spurted out in bullet form on a message board. They're to be read, dispersed at the proper moment, given all the context of the story. This is not like the movies, which cannot contain real plot surprises for fans.

If Harry dies, we don't want to know about it until J.K. Rowling decides to tell us. And if you decide to tell us before that, you'll incur the wrath of a staff of almost 200, most of whom have been waiting almost 10 years for these final revelations and can NEVER get back the moment you rob by spoiling them. That's some wrath, right there. We own pitchforks, hot wax and feathers. And we're not afraid to use them.

If, between now and July 21, Jo or her people release a fact about the book, it will be posted on this site, but you will be heavily warned about it beforehand. We understand a lot of you want to remain super-pure from now until then. We admire you, oh white angels.

If it comes from ANYWHERE else - from ANY unofficial source - it will not be on this site. You have no need to worry. We might recognize its existence in a news story, but the actual content of the spoilage won't appear on these pages.

So, bookstore managers, librarians, and people who like to stroll in the fields next to the publishing plants: We appreciate that you feel the need to share your revelations with us. But you'd have better luck and would get a better response if you told your goldfish instead. Watch out, though - we hear the publishing companies are looking into fishbowl surveillance. Mr. FlippityFins just may be a plant.

And if you're that guy who shouted "SNAPE KILLS DUMBLEDORE!" outside the bookshop at 12:01 a.m. on July 16, 2005? Just go away, man. Just go away. Quietly. And we won't hurt you.

Seriously: we're almost there, guys, so let's make sure we respect every other Harry Potter fan we can. It'll be worth it!

damn this was a good one. JK did her thing with this one.

She had me nervous and worried a few times.

I give the 7th year a solid 9.5

31. "i don't think i've pulled 5 all nighters in my life"
In response to Reply # 30


  

          

with all nighters defined as going to bed after sunrise. this was one of them. and i can't stress how happy i am i did everything--the wait in line, the marathon, finally not skipping ahead for once in my fucking life, everything. when i got home last night, it was, i think, the clearest night of the summer. i could see every star in the side, but there were those cool low hanging clouds that just sort of make it seem, well, magical. i looked up on about page 600 and realized it was starting to get light. it was one of those perfect, comfortable, cool summer mornings, EXACTLY like the last sunrise in the book.

i didn't stop for more than five minutes. cup of coffee at 10:30, start at 12:30, cup of tea around maybe 4-4:30, cup of coffee around 6:30, done at 8, re read favorite parts until 9, sleep. fucked up thing is, i slept for like 3 hours. since i got up, i wouldn't be surprised if i have alerady read the whole thing again.

it was a perfect evening. with no exageration, i can say it was one of the best nights of my life.

At one point it was about 630-7, I looked up and it was light out. I grabbbed abottled water hit the restroom and got back into it.

I love this book and I'm looking forward to the remaining movies. year 7 will be AWESOME.

I'm wondering what JK will write about next. It's going to have to be spectacular to get over the Harry Potter comparisons.

I can't even reread H H I lent it to my mother in law.

damn near heavenly close. I mean the store closed so perfectly i almost cried in some parts it was such a roller coaster ride of emotions. I don't know what to say i almost feel numb it's just. The fact that it's over no more Harry Potter no more late nights. No more midnight release. No more mushing little white kids for their books when they ain't even old enough to know how we felt when to truly understand the feeling of dismay and despair at the the death of Dumbledore. Or the gravity of what it meant when harry actually went into that graveyard at the tri-wizard cup. I mean it's such a bittersweet moment right now.

if they don't care for Kreacher as a character in the movie and disregard him as they are hinting, they are fucked when they try and make the seventh movie.

i was thinking the same (even before reading 7) after seeing order of the phoenix. he is a pivotal character that really cannot be brushed aside.

I am STILL stunned at the deaths. The body count, the selection of who dies...

...Rowlings' got nards.

I believe this is the best book of the series.

You might feel the camping part was drawn out and unnecessary, but JKR had to convey the feeling of helplessness that comes from being pursued by everyone and not having a master plan. The ending is fairly understandable about half-way through the book when they start talking about wands.

I'm literally on a HP high right now so it's hard to put my feelings into words.

My girl came back from a wedding in STL with a copy. I read book 6 last week and was trying to get through book 5 (figured I should read it after seeing the movie and realizing they had messed some stuff up... brush up on my Kreacher and Grimwauld Place knowledge). I have mad residency application stuff to finish this week, so I was gonna hit it up next week, week after. She gives me the book around 7pm yesterday and says "You might as well start it, I'm only halfway through HBP". The book is like cooked crack. Worse than any of the other ones.

I better not be on call tonight. I'm finishing it when I get home. No question.
