hiding under a rock

update: Although I haven't read the article, it looks like Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince already has a positive review from Michiko Kakutani [nyt]. Did she get the book at midnight and stay up all night reading it?


For what it's worth, I don't yet have the new Harry Potter. Not because I'm concerned about the "subtle seductions which act unnoticed and by this deeply distort Christianity in the soul" [cnn], but because my devotion to consistency compelled me to order from amazon.co.uk again.

I thought about walking down to the bookstore to see if any actual children showed up for the book release party, but realized that I'd probably buy an extra copy if I went and thought that I'd be better off not purchasing it twice.

Although I still realize that it's Harry will likely be the subject of a murderous plot, compete for and win a prize, and end up in hospital,1 I'll try my best to avoid all of your spoilers until my copy arrives.

(1) I suppose this expectation [-2.5y] should probably be revised/updated to include participation in a dramatic fight against evil. After all, the series is maturing.


there were children at our release party. also many adults. we scowled at and hated anyone over the age of 12 who was dressed up.

I don't really have anything specifically against them, but it is kind of funny.
nah, we were just trying to amuse ourselves at midnight at a bookstore.
