Final 7th


Mad about Potter? Khadijah and I are no. 1 fans of Potter. We have each installation of the chronicles of this young wizard (erm...not so young anymore). We are so looking forward to the final 7th installation of his adventure. We have pre-booked a copy! So 21st July here we come - a loong night for me, then!


The latest teaser is the release of the cover of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" yesterday. Wonder who's the important character whom Rowling has terminated...She's not giving any hints!

Pictured above is the US edition for children (for the uninitiated, they have different covers to suit the US and British children and adult market (yes adults get a chance to read it without the embarassment of having a children-looking-illustrated cover!).

I like Harry Potter too!!! Hmm what about the Sophie Kinsella's shopaholic series??? dijah suka tak???

I'm not only a big fan of Harry Potter, but also Sophie Kinsella and John Grisham too. These books drained money from my pocket but I don't mind. Worth every nickel and dime.

p/s: Any idea how they are going to launch the 7th book this year? Previously Kinokuniya gaveaway first copy to the first person for free. I went to KLCC at 6am and wow..the queue was really long. Longer that I had ever imagine. The first person was there the night before. But I still get the magic wand, still have it in my room :)

FTM - Only started reading after the 2nd book was out....

Dijah - I'll decide...But the adult version is a bit "dark" looking....

Halwafy - Mmm...I dont think I will do any spoilers....We used to get discounts like 10% if we pre-order. I haven't seen any promotions yet this time around..Or may be I have been too bz lately to notice. TQ 4 the Potter link. B-I-L is an MPH staff...so ade some disc lah!


Wan - Dijah is not into chic lits yet....She prefers dungeons, dragons and sorcerers kinda stuff for now...I dread the day when she finds the joy and solace in chic lits.....

Sherrina - No clue of the launch. Did u dress up as any of the characters? Hermione? LOL
