    But I'm sure you'll read it nevertheless.

    I hope its released early online again.

    Don't get me wrong I'm going to buy the paperback version to complete my set but I'll probably just read it on my computer or steal it from one of my friends who bought it.

    I'm not fussed. I won't be standing in line at 2 in the morning shivering my ass off in NYC winter for it, but I will buy it at some point. I'm in no hurry. I wasn't aware that you could read it online before it came out. That might be a way to go for me.

    Kendra, you won't have to wait in the winter, since it's coming out in JULY :p

    Personally I'm going to read it, but until I've read it, I'm not going to watch OotP the movie, or any that follow. My decision of whether I'll watch the movies or not will be based on the quality of the last book.

    Almost. HBP was released on 16th July 2005.

    I will read Book 7, though my expectations are pretty low. I will buy it when the queues are shorter, probably a few days after its release.

    Y'all are just haters!!! Cut it out, you goffs!

    Nah. I'm going to both read the book and watch the movie when it comes out. OOTP was and is my favorite book, so I don't think I could eschew going to go see it anyways, regardless how bad it is (and I might not be as discerning as some of you folk, but I've enjoyed the movies so far, in general). As for the book, it's kind of like someone singing a song halfway. If it's not finished, it gets stuck in my head for ages.

    I have enjoyed the movies as well. Especially PoA. I actually have not read CoS or PoA. I plan to read all six books before DH comes out just to refresh myself/fill in some gaps. I am amazed I mange to turn out a decent fic without having read two of the books...but anyhoo...

    I will watch the movie on it's opening night because I am a huge movie buff. I get too excited over movies I want to see, and with books it's not the same. Shame on me, yeah whatever, but that is how I am.

    Luckily I live in an area where people buy crack rather than books so I'll have no problems - I'll just wake up normally and buy the book :) I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty interested on how things are going to pan out and end, regardless of how disagreeable I may find it.

    I'm looking forward to it, but only in a small way. Its a book, I buy a new one every week, this will just be another to add to the library. What I'm really waiting for is all the time travel fanfiction that will inevitably follow it.

    I won't wait in a queue at midnight, but buy it or preorder it, to read it that weekend.

    If I wait too long (two or three days), I fear someone might spoil the end. I'm sure the press will reveal which characters died Saturday morning at 1 am.

    ^ I will be.

    I am awaiting book 7 and the movie.

    I am slighty shocked its actually coming out this early, I figured it be around July 08 sometime.
