HP7+ boobies = awesome? Err... Like everybody else will be in a few hours (or just photo-crazy HP fans like me), I'm just posting to say that I got the new HP book!! <3luv<3 I can't wait to see what happens!

I am just amused that Japan gets it before most other countries, because we're in an earlier time zone. Even though the store didn't open until 8 (special 1-hour opening), that's still earlier than the US. Of course, considering that it's the afternoon already (about 1 pm) and I haven't read more than a page, it's kind of a moot point, lol. But I just have to say that because we got the movie 2 weeks later and that is absolute unfairness. I saw some friends that I didn't expect to see at the bookstore 'event', too. :) Must converse with them and all of the world on the ending later tonight. <3

And now I will retreat into reading. Like anybody needs to know that. ^^;;

This was Eda's breakfast, by the way. Mmm, booby-eggs! (Lotsa booby conversation recently. I think I'm just loopy from all of the exhaustion!)

Lucky you! I don't get the Harry Potter book until midnight. Mom

amazon.co.uk から注文したけど明日届くといいなぁ >_<

I hardly ever read anything on printed paper in English (other than the newspaper) but Harry Potter, I will!

The Japanese translation takes a year, if the previous volumes are any guide. But, I'll get it too. I have to complete the sets of books... there are many quite nice bits in it, translation-wise.

Was there a large storm to buy the English version, in Japan?

I'm slowly working my way through the book and I LOVE it so far, as long as you have enjoyed the previous books in the series I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy this one too ^^

As for what happens? I'M NOT TELLING! :P (I'm not the kind of guy to post spoilers, I'd hate it if someone did it to me so I'm not doing it to anyone else.)

Eda's breakfast looks good *___*
Good seeing you today~ Did you get any good books afterwords? I pretty much crashed after getting home, but read the first page on the train. Now to catch up on the reading...
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 21st, 2007 02:33 pm (UTC)
Yep, I picked up a few good-looking books afterwards as well. I'm still only about halfway through the book, and I feel like I won't finish until tomorrow night! I feel so behind, lol!

I was really surprised to see you! But it was nice seeing you again, even if it was only for a little while. ^^

I'm only like about 1/3 of the way through. I'm a slow reader, though I've been reading for hours and hours...
Glenburning_batsu on July 21st, 2007 12:22 pm (UTC)
x_x I'm just about finished (then again I've been reading it since 11am, with a roughly 2 hour break in the middle of the afternoon, and it's just gone midnight here)

I can't wait for my copy! It's something I've been waiting since my 3rd grade when I read my 1st edition book (with a lot of interesting details like Draco beeing called Drago XD)! I hope the brazilian edition won't take long \o/
akibareakibare on July 21st, 2007 02:58 pm (UTC)
...and okay, I'll try here since there seem to be some friendly fans - is there a page out there that gives a quick synopsis of the story so far (or in particular, book 6) WITHOUT SPOILERS for 7?

I'm almost afraid to google, but thought maybe someone here would know...
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 22nd, 2007 12:50 am (UTC)
I checked, and Wikipedia is spoiler-free. ^^
Half-Blood Prince wiki

If you look at the bottom of the page, it links to the earlier books too, all of which are book7-spoiler free, so you can read the summaries to get a gist of what's going on.

I haven't finished book 7, but if you're planning to read book 7 without the others, I suggest that you go back and read, because there are a lot of recurring characters that are very important. ^^
akibareakibare on July 22nd, 2007 01:21 am (UTC)
Excellent. I will keep the wikis in mind, reading 7.

Actually, I did go back and re-read my copy of book six today, too!

7 is not here, so, earliest is Monday. Alas, I can't get "sick" either 'cos I have some huge annoying meeting scheduled... :D

You guys got a nice cover ;____; kinda reminds me of the Viet one
I think for us, we got the UK cover..where it had the 3 of them \:D/

How were the queues? Was it packed? Down here at the local borders, it was insane @.@;
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 22nd, 2007 12:50 am (UTC)
Nah, there were only a few hundred people I think, at most, and they came and went quickly, so the bookstore itself was never very packed. ^^

Boobies, and kittens.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 22nd, 2007 12:51 am (UTC)
LOL gorgeous!! And somehow it seems so very wrong....
Raynermundist on July 21st, 2007 10:59 pm (UTC)
I find it highly amusing that you have boobies on the brain and label your mood as 'bouncy'. That's just classic.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 22nd, 2007 12:51 am (UTC)
LOL, now why didn't I catch that connection? XD;;
Raynermundist on July 22nd, 2007 01:27 am (UTC)
I'd be tempted to say the question may actually be, why DID I catch that connection, but there really is no mystery in that question is there? Hah!

Thank you! ^_^ It sounds really great, unfortunately I already have plans that day.. ;_;
