    I looked at jkrowling.com for that paper. Definately interesting. I never looked at any of the background papers before. Reolution is kinda crappy on a laptop.

    I know, they are so cool. I am half tempted to blow a wad of cash while in the UK and get the whole set of the adult and kid versions of HP. I don't know if I can resist.

    My friend just sent me a copy of the cover for the deluxe edition of the HBP, looks like Harry and Dumbledore are in the forbidden forest.

    So are you going to get all the books read in time? I want to so badly, but this damn class is consuming so much of my reading free time, that I can't get them all in. Shoot. :(

    So which one is your favorite? GOF is the best so far (in my opinion, of course)

    a friend of mine hated it and told me the other day that if this one is the same he is going to stop reading the books.

    yeah, he really hated the last book. barely got thru it... but i have heard that from quite a bit of people. seems that often in a long series book 5 seems to be a changing point

    Well, I guess I can see it. Reading the Cronicles of Narnia, I had a hard time getting through The Horse and His Boy, and blew through 6 & 7. Haven't really read those three since. I love the first 4 though.

    I was in middle school and then I stopped... never got into it again.

    So, are you going to be getting a UK version while you are there?

    Oh, you know it. (At least the HPB anyway. We'll see about $ and space buying the whole series). I am there from July 9-22, so I will hopefully have it read by the time I get home, and I have a US version pre-ordered, so I will read that version when I get back.

    questin: a couple that I know and am friends with is getting married in January and I am trying to decide on a present that would be appropriate for them and I was thinking of getting them a set of the deluze versions of each of the books or a set of the British translations. What do you think? BTW, they are HUGE fans of the series.

    And another topic brought up to me: if you could ask Rowlings one question and she had to answer it what would it be?
