    It won’t take long. I think I read it in a day.
    It’s impossible to put down.

    Why didn’t you just go to Barnes and Noble and buy the book? I went to a Barnes and Noble in Westgate last weekend, and they had a dozen copies sitting on the shelf…waiting to be picked up and read by eager fans.
    But I guess it is more suspensfull to hide in the shadows, staring intently at your mailbox, ready to pounce on the poor mailman, sharp claws ripping ferociously into the packaging, as the poor mailman screams in dreadful fright, “Squeeeeeeee!”
    While you tower above his quivering body, your eyes glowing maniacly yellow with delirious pleasure, raising your trophy with both hands, above your head, howling with triumphant to the world, “IT CAME!! IT CAME!!” At each triumphant howl of your words, lightning bolts flash and thunder roars its approval.
    Oh, by the way, ##### dies in the book ;)

    Ricky: Took me a couple days to read (as you can tell from my posts) ‘cos I didn’t have time to read it in one sitting. Good thing, too, ‘cos I get a fierce book hangover when I do that.
    Eric: I refuse to buy the American editions on principle. Two reasons: (1) they “simplified” and “Americanized” the first couple of books (especially the first, where the name of the central object was changed ‘cos the publishers though American kids were too dumb to get what the Philosopher’s Stone is) and (2) the book covers of the US editions are nowhere near as pretty as the UK versions.
    Well, and I strongly believe in reading books as the author wrote them, not as the publishers feel like presenting them. I understand that the recent books have been much less altered, but they have still been altered.
    Some of the changes were pretty significant: http://www.uta.fi/FAST/US1/REF/potter.html
