    I know, Mike just doesn't have the patience to read which is the problem :p

    I will force him to listen to the audio books, I haven't listened to them but they should be good because it is the English version and not the American one with half the words altered :p

    Mike, you have 5 days to listen to it, otherwise I will be forcing you to liten to it :p

    lol the first book has ALOT of changes, it is like the movie Ron says "mail is here" we don't say mail we say post, it was obviously changed for the US which is annoying because the book and characters are English so would say English phrases.

    Hey didn't you know we all have to conform to the Americans so they don't realise that everyone else in the world is capable of independant thought.
    Have you ever watched their news? it's about nothing.

    I would make a comment but Mike would have to edit me for flaming so will have to wait until I get over there.
    The non flame answer is no, I only watch British new reports on tv or if over there Canadian ones.

    Amber and i were discussing the possibility that half blood may have nothing to do with partial magician's blood, it could be half blood in relation to someone, like Harry or Voldemort, as a half brother or sister would be.

    the hands clasped on the back of the book w the lightening around it could be some kind of magical recognition....

    have you seen the [link=http://www.mugglenet.com/viewer/?image_location=gof/gofsticker.jpg]pic[/link] of mad eye moody? not quite how i imagined him, in my head he's hunched over and more grizzled, isn't he supposed to be missing part of his nose? oh well. only 21 days left and i still haven't pre-ordered my book, have to do that this weekend, haven't even gotten very far in goblet, just as far as the dark mark :( just no time for anything anymore
