I don't plan to go to the midnight release, I'll get my book tomorrow.
Two reasons I am not going tonight: 1) if I get the book at midnight I will stay up all night reading it, 2) I have heard nasty people shout out spoilers when you leave the bookstore.
If you do go tonight, Newsweek magazine suggests wearing headphones and turning the volume up while you wait in line and as you leave the store. So then you can't hear people if they shout of any spoilers. Apparently in the back of the book JK Rowling writes about what happens to everyone later in their lives. So it would be easy to look and then tell people if you wanted to be a meany. I am going to have a REALLY hard time not looking myself. I have been known to race to the back of a book to find out what happens. We'll see how much self control I have!
I found this fun quiz, you can be sorted by the sorting hat and find out which house you are in. I'm a Ravenclaw!
Also my husband worked really hard on this Harry Potter section of the OrlandoSentinel.com. It's even got a flash player where you can catch up on what happened in all the other books! Handy!! Quizzes too if you are bored at work!
Claudine, you've got to email me the spoilers once you know them. I'm dying to find out - I haven't read the books, but am definitely curious to know how this final book ends.
