I actually heard on the news today that a CVS in Virginia accidentally put the book on sale midnight last night :P

XD I believe it! I think that happened at a CVS last time, too. A mother bought two copies, one for each of her children.

People are complete idiots, to "accidentally" sell it early.

You know what I found? At midnight JK Rowling will be reading Deathly Hallows and it will be streamed at the Bloomsbury website.

The best part? Midnight where she's reading it is 6 PM EST. We could be listening to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in 45 minutes! XP

I'm not going to though. I'd have to leave in the middle for the midnight party and I'd prefer to read it myself. :P

Though I heard it would be up for streaming after the event...I might be up for that. :P

Just started here, listening to a few minutes of it. :D But I don't really want to spoil it.

The first I want to know any of what happens is reading it myself.
And I'm glad I'm not going to a release party cause they're probably far too crowded and I don;t know anyone to go with.

LOL That's pretty cool.

I just bought book three and four. I have to finish another book I'm reading first before I can start them though.

Meh, it's just the first chapter.

I was the first to get the book at my store. People took my picture. It was cool.

I guarantee there will be no plot points, just a slight review of tone. No hints to what is happening, nothing. It's completely the mood of the story. I'm putting it in a spoiler tag just in case, but I am NOT so terrible as to reveal anything, promise.

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

Oh, and I won the Potter Spelling Bee at my local Borders...that's what got me first in line.

Wheee! Mine just got here! !!!

Almost don't want to read it though, cause it'll all be over.

*sigh* Rebecca's making a ruckus cause our dad just stole her book to tease her. And now he's just stolen mine.

*Goes off to get book back* :P

Mine came in today as well :) I can't wait to read it, but I'm in the middle of another one...so I have to decide whether to start reading HP and stop the other...or risk hearing people talking about it come Monday XD

I"m right in the middle of a book too... the last one in the trilogy. But it's not nearly as good as HP, so HP wins out by far!

Well, the really fun part is that I got all my documentation for work to transfer over to the official forms I just got a couple days back. So that DEFINITELY takes priority...since it's due by Monday at 3 pm...and I worked on it four about five hours yesterday and am not close to being done :-\
