The Librarian

The saga continues ...

Fans whisk latest Potter volume off bookshelves

Y'know, to be honest, there's a part of all this fooferaw that I can't relate to. Yes, they are excellent books and I look forward to reading the new instalment of the story, but I honestly can't comprehend being that desperate to read it. I do plan to buy it, but likely won't bother to do so for a few months, after I've found time to reread the previous books.

EDIT: I AM glad to see that the Canadian stores that "accidently" sold copies in advance (how one accidently opens cartons that have DO NOT OPEN UNTIL JULY 16 in huge fluorescent green letters is beyond me ... mebbe all the staff are colourblind?) are getting a good, hard SMACK: Potter books pulled after premature sales. Good for Raincoast ... hitting 'em in their revenues. :-)
