Read the Goblet of Fire again while you are waiting, Liz, because the new book keeps on referring back to stuff in that, and it'd help to be clued up.

Whee! Stood in line at the local Borders store Friday night from midnight to 1:30AM to get my copy. Finished half of it before 8AM on Saturday, with the help of the new 24-hour Starbuck's. (Gosh, I feel like Wichita is almost a city, now--what with a Starbuck's AND a Krispy Kreme that stay open all night.) I agree, Phoenix is her best yet. I've now re-read Sorcerer's Stone and Chamber of Secrets, and am re-starting Prisoner of Azkaban tonight. Too much fun!

For those who complain that she is derivative of authors: are these the same people who are buying all of Terry Brooks's ripoffs of Tolkein?????

And any book that will induce a round-robin discussion among MY extended family is well worth buying in hardback.

Very nicely done, Ms. Rowling!

Finally saw it for sale in Netto for £7.98!
Decided that the paperback version will not be much cheaper, and a long wait until they think they have squeezed as much cash as they can out of the hardback print run, so bought it.
Might get around to reading it some time in the next couple of weeks.
See you all then!
Quack!
GtD.

I just watched the webcast Interview and Reading from the Albert Hall. Om has gone there with her class from school. She told me they had good seats - and sure enough there was a shot of her reading along in her copy of the book.
I did think JK was a bit of a money-grabbing nutter what with all the sue-ing that has been going on - but she came across really well on the webcast. And she read it fantastically - after a nervous start she go completely absorbed in it - and so did I....

Here is the website for the Albert Hall event - http://www.msn.co.uk/liveevents/harrypotter/event/. Wouldn't work with my connection, but others might be luckier. LKooked weird - two people in an interview on a lit-up strage, and the auditorium packed with thousands of people listening in.

Picked up 2 copies yesterday. Had one wrapped and gave it to my kid to be opened on Saturday (his b'day) and read the other one in 2 sittings. It is a fast read as it is not printed compactly. Umbrage got exactly what she deserved but not enough of it. I was disappointed at who got bumped off, as I felt the individual should have been allowed to develop more over the next few books; ah, well.

The Albert Hall thing was a one-off event staged for schoolkids. Schools could enter a competition to win the chance to buy tickets. Om's class were really lucky and were right at the front - Om's face appears several times on the webcast.
It was transmitted live initially - then its left on as an archive for the next week - so you can connect in and listen anytime.
On a 56k modem its not great quality - just slow-changing stills from the video stream + reasonable audio.
I watched it live on the broadband link & that was fantastic.
Its very good - the interview bit is quite interesting, but her reading is absolutely stunning.

Just finished it - so I an go on my hols tomorrow in peace:-)

I have my own views on certain bits and pieces but as JK Rowling has never criticised me I am reluctant to do so to her! Besides it would be churlish in the extreme to pick up one or two things that were not entirely to my liking out of such an epic. All in all an excellent read and very enjoyable.

I read it! I enjoyed it, yet I must take 'umbrage' at the imposition of a new headteacher!

The placenames continue to enchant! so far we've had;
1, How do you fit another street into London's crowded map ?
2, When and where do black wizards shop ?
3, How would you best describe Sirius Black's ancestral pile ?

1, Diagonally               (Diagon Alley)
2, Nocturnally             (Knockturn Alley)
3, a Grim Old Place    (Grimmauld Place)

You mean they bought it in English? Now that is impressive. It's impossible to even conceive of that happening with a book in a foreign language in this monoglottal country.

Do you mind - due to the meticulous way some people read books, there are still some of us who haven't held a copy yet, let alone read it..... and although I know who dies, there are still some surprises left that I'd like to discover on my own thank you very much......

McGrath, bought in English (the German translation will make No. 1 in November). Sorry I didn't make that part clear. Translations have quite often made first place in sales.

For the music angle, more often than not an English language song leads the pop charts since at least the late 60s. But for books that is a first.

Watching the first movie on DVD this past weekend had me thinking about flying on a broomstick. It'd be damned uncomfortable. Get a long 1" wooden dowel and put it on the backs of two chairs separated. Then rest your entire weight on it for about 5 minutes.

Pretty hard on the crotch. And that's with even pulling any Gs on it.
You'd think they'd affix a bicycle seat to it or something?

Better yet, how about a flying La-Z Boy chair?
