    Re: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Cover!!!

    Is there some easy way of showing up at the B&N, getting my pre-ordered books (yes, plural), and leaving? I don't feel a need to hang around too long. That would be reading time wasted.

    Does anyone else here ever feel just a little obsessed with Harry Potter at times?

    The book will go on sale at B&N on Friday, July 20th at midnight. Since there are so many people there, you need to pick up a color card to determine your place in line. For instance, all the red card holders go first. When that line goes down, yellow card holders go next. We had over 200 people at our store and we got everyone out of the store by 12:30. All the registers were ringing and they were only ringing the HP book. All the employees are there to help with fast cashiering so it really does go fast. You could have your book in hand and reading soon after midnight!

    I encourage all of you to find a store that is having a party and attend. You won't see this kind of crazy love for a book ever again. (I guess I shouldn't say never. HP book #8? Come on, a girl can dream can't see?)

    At times. Now is one of them, for example.

    Nancy, thanks again for the PMs. Is there a way to pre-buy the books, so I can just pick them up? I don't want to order them online, since something could happen to delay the transit. Last time, I nearly went to the B&N to pick them up.
    It's either B&N that night, or Costco the next day (I'll likely have a list of things to pick up there, besides the books). It's up to you to convince me! Again, the "party atmosphere" is not a plus, and could easily be a minus for me.

    Unfortunatly, no. We are not allowed to pre-sell the book unless the warehouse is sending it to your house. (That way the book is not counted as sold until it leaves the warehouse.) We cannot pre-sell you the book and then hold it for you later that night. That is breaking the "strict on sale" that the book carries. We have to wait till midnight to ring up the book. Does that make sense the way I explained it? When we get all the boxes with the books, we cannot even open the boxes until a few minutes before midnight. We call it The Wall of Potter. If a store is caught opening the boxes early or selling them early, Scholastic can take away your right to sell that book. It happened at a Wal-Mart somewhere last time. They mean business.

    After seeing the 2 UK covers I have to say if it were me I would prefer the Uk adult cover or the American cover. The other cover is ugly to me.

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
    *breathes*
    I want this NOW
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Me too!


    I know I'm going to be a dorky loser that cries after I read the last page. I can't believe that I used to be a Harry Potter basher (back when GOF book was released). I couldn't believe that people were going crazy over a book. I got the first book as a gag gift in 2001 and was addicted after reading the first chapter.

    Answering yours...

    If I remember right it had something to do with the artwork on the inside. They either have none or it's a whole page artwork...

    or is that deluxe?
