I can tell you, I wish I had a copy of it in hands right now. I said I wasn't going to, but I broke down and preordered a copy from amazon.com. I had planned on buying today in stores at Barnes and Noble. However, after asking one of the B&N clerks how much the book would be in stores on release day, I changed my mind. With Oshie's residency interviews getting closer, we're really watching our budget right now. I can't fathom paying $35 today for a book I could have for $21 if I wait two days with my amazon prime student shipping. Call me cheap, but when your on a budget, you're on a budget.
But that doesn't mean that I'm not very excited and curious about this book. I'm going to try to avoid spoilers, as to keep myself unbiased until I can read the book for myself. I already saw one when I looked up this photo...I'm sure the news will be riddled with them today.
Personally, I'm wondering if this book will change how I feel about J.K. Rowling as an author and maybe even as a person (I admire her charity). What if I absolutely hate it? Would I avoid reading her future books? I'll just have to wait and see.
