I got mine today around lunch time, but now I have to prepare a presentation on Carlyle (and I don't know much about Carlyle) and thus can't read Harry :(

Re:

I would suggest writing a little bit, taking a 15 minute break to read just the first chapter, and then finishing. That way you get the thrill of having had a sip as it were and you get your presentation done as well. :)

As I don't have a grain of self-discipline in me, I'm already in Chapter 5... Now back to Carlyle!

potter mania

Hurrah!!! It's just crazy go nuts exciting isn't it!

My friend is past page 700 - she knows who dies. . .and it is soooooooo tough resisting the urge (urges) to casually flick through the pages. . .to the end. . .to see - NO!!!

I must be STRONG!

My friend did say that she cried though :o(

I'll race you to the end. . . and GO!

Re: potter mania

I actually have a different strategy.

It's called "take your time because you've been waiting so tupping long for this"

I am going to force myself to read exactly, and no more than, one chapter per day. Starting today, with chapter one. Tee!

potter-tastic

I think that's called 'amazing self-control' :o)

I bought the book at 27 minutes past midnight on Saturday (yeah!) and because things are still a little hectic in my life at the moment, I have 'only' read 89pages/5 chapters. I tried to read while I was working today - I managed a whole 2 pages in an hour. . .I just couldn't focus!!!

I guess I'm working on 30 pages a day. . .although I know when the excitment starts I'll be hard pushed to put it down - the last part of these books sees me carrying them around everywhere!

Re: potter-tastic

So my friend just sent me email - she's finished the book. Question is, what is she going to do while the rest of the world (well me and her 10 year old daughter) make their way s-l-o-w-l-y through it?!!

Re: potter-tastic

i'd guess, feel bad that she also didnt go slower. or she could re-read. and re-read. and re-read.

daaaaaaammn...

2001???? that's hilarious. XD But at least YOU HAVE THE BOOK!! I DO TOO!!! ~dances~

Calming down now. Anyway, I'm at the beginning of chapter 15. This book is awesome. I can't wait to finish it =D

Re: daaaaaaammn...

I can wait.

I can wait, and I will. I will somehow make myself read only 1 chapter per day.

I didn't wait nearly 2 and a half years to zoom through this :D

Re: daaaaaaammn...

Dude, you're crazy!! Make it at least 2 chapters a day =P
gordond From: gordond Date: le 23 juin 2003 17:36 (UTC) (Lien)

Re: daaaaaaammn...

Nope! Not after this long. 38 days is a short period of time if you're in this kind of world.....

Re: daaaaaaammn...

danke.

it's chapter two day! Yay!

Re: daaaaaaammn...

i'm still dwelling on the fact that you're reading it one chapter a day.. how much i would suffer if i did that.....

First chapter was good, dontcha think? =)
gordond From: gordond Date: le 24 juin 2003 14:09 (UTC) (Lien)

Re: daaaaaaammn...

It was great. I'm loving chapter two, too. Can't wait 'til tomorrow! Gives me something I can look forward to, see?

Kind of like how, in my class schedule, there are little nuances which makes things different. If every day I had the same class schedule, I'd go batty. Tee.

Re:

day by day, chapter by chapter rather than page by page works best for me. I started with just chapter one yesterday. today will be just chapter two, and chapter one again if I'm in the mood. tee hee.
