July is approaching, and Harry Potter is now available for pre-ordering on discounted price. Do you want to pre-orer the book or just wait for second-hand or pirated one on the Internet?

I am so excited for this last Harry Potter book. I wrote an entry about how I want it to end here:

If you haven't read all the books, there are spoilers, so be careful.

I like the harry potter series, but I can't understand people who are obsessed with it; I mean, come on. The part that I find attactive about the seires is the slice of life, magical bording school experience I get to see, and to be honest I really don't care about Voldimort or snape. I think I would enjoy it just as mutch as a romance comidey.

A really good book is one that can be enjoyed not only for its story line, but for its writing.

Some writers have convoluted stories that never really end, but they are good writers, so they have fans.

Some writers can't write themselves out of a paper bag, but they create perfect and elaborate stories, so they have fans.

The best books have both.

While you're waiting for the book, here is a picture of a familiar object. There's a sign for Platform 9 3/4 (and a luggage cart that's half-disappeared into the wall) at the real-life King's Cross Station in London.

i don't know why, but i love the Harry Potter series, i've pre-order and have signed up to go to the midnight release... i thought that i would grow out of it, but instead have grown more 'fanatic' about it

Yeah, me too. I started at 13 and I was like, "eh," about it. Now I call my best friend everyday (well, not everyday, screaming, "Oh my God! Harry Potter! Are you excited! Midnight showing! Wooh!" I say it just like that too. I still like the books better though. Books are always better than the movie.

[quote="Fanatic"]I agreee, books are way better. the movie kills your own imagined version of the story. I pictured no 4 totally different. I also don't like that they edit out bits, even if they are insignificant bits they still are there for a reason...[/quote]

I totally agree with you: the movies are highly over edited. However, I'm still excited about the 5th movie and the seventh book! :D

Please, don't anyone lynch me for saying this, but I kinda hope Harry and Voldemort die, that's how I think it should end, personally (morbid person, I know--but I'm not really). Didn't she say one cannot survive without the other? am I mistaken? :?:

The same thing happens in every book, seriously. After two or three books I got bored. I predicted everything that happened in the fifth and sixth books correctly, I doubt my predictions about the seventh will be wrong. We talking about JK Rowling, not O. Henry.
