    Just a quick note so ya'll can gloat.

    I went to the library to pick up as many of the Harry Potter books they had in. Got the first two and I'm half through the first one. Can't put it down. Later.

    Its a pile of poo, to be polite, a cheap rip off of a book that a Lady in the states wrote 1 year before Harry Potter came about.
    She may changed a few things in it, like the creation of a Wizard school, but the same stuff is there including the name. Also it breaches about 75 copyright laws but I wont get into that.

    Yes but Paul, do you know how many books are written that someone else can claim they had the idea first? Or had written something similar first?

    The problem is that the other author was jealous of the popularity of the HP books and wanted to make trouble and cash in.

    This was never substantiated.

    Maybe you should take off your "security person" head sometimes Paul.

    You really dont know what you're missing.

    me brother in law is a teacher and he bought them from a school book club. All the hardbacks in a slipcase for £25! He said he will get me them next time they are on offer at the bookclub. If they ever are. I'm going to borrow all of his in the meantime.

    Seriously Paul... you're making a fool of yourself now.. settle down... :p

    Anyways, you really don't know what you're missing. Cass will back me up on this cos I was seriously sceptical before Cass and Jon made me read them! Despite my love for Tom Clancy or Steve Coontz style stories, Harry Potter has just become my favourite thing in the entire world!

    Well... you can't have that opinion til you've read the third one, at least... I won't let you :p

    As another Harry Potter issue, Spielberg might be helming the Prisoner of Azkaban!

    Yeah. How do you know they're over rated if you've never read them?

    Now...what if someone claims they wrote 3D Max (or whatever the heck that is) before whomever wrote the book you're reading right now and caused a big fuss? Would you stop reading the book?

    Same thing really...aint it?
