Release Date for HP7 - *SQUEAL*

Ok. First if you don't know what HP7 stands for it is Harry Potter 7 or rather Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.


*Jumps up and does the happy dance*

Ok. Now that I have finished doing the happy dance and making a fool of myself let me get reasonable. I have followed the series for so long that I'm not sure what my feelings are about this. My first reaction was as seen above, my second reaction (that followed closely behind it) was the realization that I'm going to be at camp when the book is put on the shelves at midnight probably dealing with nine year olds that are itching just as much as I am to have that lovely hardback in my hand.

There is sooo much waiting to be discovered about this book that I truely am excited. Was Harry really the boy that the prophecy was talking about? Is Hogwarts going to stay open after the demise of Dumbledore at the hands of the Death Eaters? Will Ron and Hermionee ever admit to liking each other? Will the Trio ever graduate from Hogwarts or will they not return in order to try and find the rest of the horcruxes? These are just a few of the questions that I ask myself.

Another feeling that shortly followed the camp one was that this is the final book in the HP series. *insert sad face here* Rowling will never write another book about Harry. She has said so in many different interviews so one knows that she is going to try and finish it in such a way that no one will ever be confused about what happens afterwards. Another thing that makes me sad about this being the final book is that she has said (I can't find the interview right now where she said it but I will and update this entry later) that there are a few main characters that will die. We know she isn't bluffing because just look at what she did to Sirius and poor Dumbledore.

Ok. I'm going to go now because I just can't sit still. I have phone calls to make so that I can excited squeal about the release date to family and friends! Hope this news at least brightens someone's day like it has mine. OH! And btw....Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is in theaters July 13, 2007 (for which I will also be at camp :-( ) just in case you were wondering.

You should order it now on amazon, a friend of mine did that and she said it was great because she got it the day it came out and she didn't have to wait in lines or anything. I agree with you, I'm really excited about the last book but I'm dreading it as well. I'm worried she will kill Harry off (I mean it's a good way to avoid having to write any more books). I probably won't read it until it comes out in paperback, I've actually been wanting to read the series over again because I forget some of the events that have happend.

I'm pre-ordering very soon.

I recall a time when I, as a high school sophomore, read the third Harry Potter book and wondered what would happen when the series ended. I groaned and realized that, at the rate J.K. was putting out the books, there were still YEARS left to find out, and that I'd either be close to finishing or out of college before I knew. Forever away, I thought...
