Dude, if you did do that, I would've wanted to be right there with you. That's such an awesome idea.

I've read about 150 pages so far. It's pretty good. Thelis, just one question - did you think it was good enough to live up to the hype overall?

Some of it. It will pick up pretty soon for you, however... well I don't want to give away too much, but the epilogue was...<a bit of a spoiler> like furby's visit to CF (short and not interesting).

Also, I predicted a lot of that stuff. Particularly about our favorite greasy-haired professor about whom you will learn a HUGE deal. So it was not surprising, and definitely not my favorite book, but still quite a good finish.

I just got back from Walmart moments ago. There were the new Harry Potter books there, $17.99, lol. I would expect the price to be much greater than that.

They probably don't realize that regular stores have those. At Walmart, there were no lines at all for the book. All the books are sitting on a pallet right in the middle of the store, lol. People go by and just take one and go, that's it. No hassle.
