Harry Potter Fans: Do You Have Your Copy of the 7th Book Yet?

I know many of you die-hard Harry Potter fans stayed strong over the week when folks were posting all sorts of spoilers of the 7th book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, because you knew you'd be voraciously reading the book itself this weekend.

So? Do you have it? Are you dying from over-excitement? Or did you end up on a waitlist when your local bookstore ran out of copies?

i got my copy at wal-mart the morning it came lines or anything. i finished it the next day. and now i'm reading it again just to take in every little word. I kind of rushed it the first time because i was so eager to find out what the was going to happen. Nevertheless, it was amazing!! probably the best book in the series and definitely my most favorite book. But I'm incredibly sad that there's no more waiting for another book after this one. I was happy with the outcome after I had got done reading, but felt empty. The true sadness will kick in when the last movie comes out. ): I feel like my child hood is slipping away now.

My boyfriend just walked into Wal-Mart and grabbed a copy out out of the ginormous wait! I'm only on pg. 113 so no spoilers please!

My son and I go through books like water, so my rule is to not buy hardback books. It would be too expensive. So I funnel all my paperbacks through my sister and she lets me borrow the HP books when she's finished with them. It's killing me though. I even went to Barnes & Noble Sunday and carried the book around for a while before I finally put it back and left with my two paperbacks. Sigh!!

To comment on whether these are "children's books" or as to not understanding the craze: I used to feel EXACTLY the same way. I've always been a literary snob and was very "above" reading HP when it came out. But, I was an English major in college, so I love to read and have read some of the best literature ever written. Then, when Book 5 was coming out, I decided to read the previous 4. I read nonstop and finished all 4 in one week. These book are written so effortlessly and amazingly - better and better as they go on. The character development borders perfection, and the storylines are so complex and intriguing: it's now impossible for me to see them as a children's series. It's more like how The Chronicles of Narnia are supposed to be children's books, but the allegories and subplots are based on some of the most siginificant works of art, literature and religion in history. So my lesson learned: Don't judge HP as a children's series. I have enjoyed the last 5 years of being a Potter-lover immensely and am so sad (though satisfied) that it's over. If you have seen the movies, you can realy start reading at Prisoner of Azkaban through Deathly Hallows. The books are so much more indepth than the movies, and you miss so many great adventures and characters!! If you love to read, the series is worth its weight in Galleons! I highly recommend. :)

My friend and I stopped by a local 24-hr diner the other nite and saw a table full of kids, about 7 people who had appaently just gotten the book, and they were all reading it at the table. No one was saying a word to each other, they were all just reading. Clearly [they and] their friends weren't interesting enough, and they didn't have anything better to do than read a book at a restaurant. I felt sorry for the poor losers.

I finished it last night! We were able to walk right into Barnes and Noble and pick it up! I didn't put it down until I was done! I LOVE Harry Potter! I think I'm going to read it again too, I'm sad it's over!

Not into Harry Potter at all. I don't understand the appeal. Read one book, saw one movie, but just can't get into it! Does anyone else feel like that? I feel like I am seriously the only one not crazed by Harry Potter.

definitely walked into a Target on Saturday morning (where they had TONS) and picked one up without having to wait in any lines. I'm about halfway through and this one is intense!!

I went into Costco on Saturday and they had piles and piles of it everywhere! I finished it last night... wow is all I can say. It's a bit weird, though, because there's all this hype and you're so excited, and it's so good, you start reading, and you just keep reading and reading... and then you finish. And you're kind of in a daze over it. I mean, it's over! It's like I want to keep reading but there's nothing left to read...

But contrary to a previous post, I felt it answered all the questions that needed to be addressed.

I finished the book yesterday but I still don't know how I feel about it. I read so many spoilers and was actually surprised that one of them turned out to be the right one. I'll give it another go in about a week (my poor eyes are strained at the monent) and I'll see how I feel about it then. I liked the second half of the book, it's the first half I don't really like.
