I bought the book at midnight where I live though I hadn't actually gone out specifically to buy it. I was out drinking with some friends and got really drunk and whilst walking home saw a huge queue (about 100 people) outside a local bookshop so thought it would be a good idea to join it (as you do when drunk).

Luckily whilst I was waiting they opened up the shutters to inside the shopping centre and I found another book shop inside without a queue so didn't have to wait like most of the others ;-)

Well I bought the book and I started it ... on the first chapter. Heh, I like to read these books slow so figure a few weeks before I'm totally finished.

I have my book and I started the first chapter. I will be taking it slow also but I know of at least 5 people who read the entire book the first day.

Yea, this books is quite short compared to the other ones. However, if you have read to other Potter books, this one is the most informing book, with less *crap*.

Meh, most of my reading is done in my extra time in school, and harry potter isn't exactly something you wouldn't get made fun of for reading as a sophmore/junior;)

I'll just watch the movie or read the sparknotes version of it :p

I just finished reading it and I liked it.  The only non spoiler thing I can think of saying is how really well the title fits with the story.

Finished it, and thoroughly enjoyed it.  Someone indeed told me a spoiler the other weekend which pissed me off monumentally, but yeah, finished it in about 3 days casual reading.  I'll eat my words, and say that i was wrong about Rowling - she's pulled out all the stops for this one and i loved the "dark" aspect of the book.  If you haven't read it yet then you will definately enjoy it.

No, i'll just borrow it like i did this one ;).  Only reason i read it so quickly was because someone told me a spoiler and i had this urge to find out if they were taking the mick or not.  But yeah, was a good book - i'm allowed to be wrong once or twice!
