    Doesn't bother me I just go to apple.com anyway [face_love] :p

    Would you guys like me to get the list of what is supposed to be included in the next book?

    Release Date: July 16th, 2005

    Length (US):
    - Trade version: 672 pages
    - Deluxe edition: 704 pages

    Length (UK):
    - Trade version: 608 pages

    Chapters: The deluxe edition includes 32 additional pages of artwork; the same pictures throughout the book before each chapter, just larger versions. Considering there is also 1 or 2 pieces of artwork before the story begins, we can expect about 30 chapters.

    Additionally, the door on JKR's site opened on Halloween revealing 3 of the chapter titles. You can see/read about them here.

    Other Info: On August 16th, the door on JKR's site opened giving us the following excerpt of book 6, which describes the Half-Blood Prince:

    (He) looked rather like an old lion. There were streaks of grey in his mane of tawny hair and his bushy eyebrows; he had keen yellowish eyes behind a pair of wire-rimmed spectacles and a certain rangy, loping grace even though he walked with a slight limp.


    Random facts about the book

    We will learn a lot more about Voldemort in this book.

    HBP will be an intense book, but with light-hearted moments.

    Harry will leave Privet Drive early again, for a "much pleasanter" reason than in book 5.

    The opening chapter of book 6 was originally planned for the early parts of book 1, perhaps we get a more in-depth story of what happened the night Harry's parents died.

    Neither Harry or Voldemort (including Tom Riddle) are the Half-Blood Prince

    Arthur Weasley will not be the new Minister of Magic

    By the ends of books 6 and 7 "you'll have all the back story you'll need", says JK Rowling, and a prequel will not be necessary

    There will be a new Minister of Magic, no more Mr. Fudge.

    We will find out what happened to Hagrid's half brother Grawp. He will be a bit more controllable in book 6.

    The Dursleys are in the next book, but Harry's stay with them will be the shortest yet. In book 5 he stayed for 4 weeks, so we know his stay will be less than 4 weeks.

    Cho Chang will not be a romantic interest of Harry in Book 6, however there will be a "little romance" for Harry says JK.

    In books 6 and 7 we will find out exactly why JK killed off Sirius.

    Harry becomes even more powerful in book 6.

    In books 6 and 7 we will find out why Dumbledore trusts Snape.

    We will find out what happened to Wormtail AKA Peter Pettigrew

    More about the animosity between Snape and Sirius will be revealed in the last 2 books.

    JK has said that giving away the form of Snape's boggart and patronus says too much. We'll definitely find out what Snape's worst fear is, and it'll be important.

    Hermione and Draco will NOT end up together in book 6 or 7.

    We will find out what exactly Dudley saw when he looked at the dementors.

    The reason Voldemort and Harry both didn't die when Voldemort tried to kill Harry, will be revealed.

    We will see more of Draco's mother, Narcissa Malfoy, now that Lucius is busy.

    We'll learn more about Harry's scar in the last 2 books.

    Moaning Myrtle will make an appearance again, as will Tonks.

    More about Voldemort's birth will be revealed, thus helping us understand why he is so evil.

    Muggles begin to notice "more and more odd" occurrences in book 6, says JK.

    The wizarding world is really at war in the sixth book.

    Harry will tell his dearest friends about the prophesy after it sinks in to him.

    We will learn more about Harry's relatives, including his grandparents (though JK says they aren't really important to the story)

    We will find out what happened to Sirius's motorbike.

    Book 6 will be shorter than the 5th book (or at least JK's 99% sure, but will not swear on her children's lives)

    There will be no "new" nationalities of children at Hogwarts. Hogwarts is a British school, and JK says that adding foreigners for the sake of it is not in her plans.

    During an interview, when JKR was asked in which Hogwarts room she'd like to be for 1 hour, she said it would be a room in which Harry has been before, but doesn't know its importance. Yet. (this could h

    He is supposed to be dead but I don't think it is going to be the last we see of him [face_mischief]

    Not alive, no matter how much I wish that but I do think there is more to it.

    1 it was written very poorly for a main character like his to be killed off
    2 the character could have done alot more, I feel currently really it was brought in for no reason. Someone has argued with me that it was to show he was innocent, however that can easily be shown another way. Pettigrew would have eventually gone back to Voldemort and it could have been done through him about Sirius.

    Oh someone elsewhere asked what Messrs as in the marauders meant and one translation which came back was

    "The oldest brother of the king of France."

    Wouldn't the brother of a king be a prince? [face_mischief]

    very interesting, so maybe its harry or lupin, i always assumed it was shortened or similiar to masters / misters, she is very clever

    Rowling has already said it isn't Harry.

    It would be Peter, however I think Lupin is more likely as we know he definately is a half blood in two ways.

    Actullally messrs or however you spell it is like the french monseur, i think Yianns right about the mister part, but it's a pluralization, meaning more than one of them.

    The epthmology of the word could be as Amber sugessted but i am not sure if it has anyhing to do with the HBP.

    There has to be more about Sirus, why put all that effort into development of character and bond him so strongly to Harry to give him such a short existance?????

    Well the plural most likely is because it was on the map refering to all four marauders.

    Out of them only one I know is a definate half blood which is Lupin.

    Sirius definatly has to have more to him, I am wondering if she is going to be taking into acount there are two sirius stars A and B

    Well doesn't say whether Peter is a half blood but doubt he is.

    You mean these robes although can't see them well in these
