Warning, there are real spoilers on the net already

Postby Sindatur » Thu Jul 19, 2007 7:20 am

Some folks got ahold of the book early, and apparently there are scans of some pages on the net. JKR's lawyers have verified some are real, though some are not real. So, if you plan on going into hiding as of Saturday, you may want to think about doing it a little early.

These folks who like to spoil stuff are vicious. They'll post a news article and right in the middle spit out a spoiler like for HBP "XXXXXXXXXXXX killed XXXXXXXXXXXX". Be cautious fellow Potterites, if someone puts up spoilers some place, and you're tempted, you may not want to look at them, becuase they may be bigger then you want to see.

Apparently some store(s) let the books out early.

I've seen three sets of spoilers now, and I don't think that any of them are those that were supposedly copied and posted. And they are three different sets of events.

I ran into one today that gives a count of how many main and secondary characters die in the book, fortunately no names though.

as if putting them up on the net was not bad enough, some one in school came up to me today and said hey did you hear that in the new Harry potter ------happens.
$#@*&#%!!!
now I know that some one was not trying to spoil it for me on purpose, but I also know that they are right because they got a advance copy,and has read it. some one thought that I had read up to that part to, but I'm not at that part yet.
Go away, I am not talking to you till I am done.

Dang! At least , in somewhat of a defense. I Have a friend that has rad the whole book. (being a Librarian, had the privilege) ... AND.. She has been gracefull enough as to NOT Spoil ANYTHING for me. She has class (As well as guilt for the privilege) and, as I am on vacation and will not get the book till...er..Monday, That's cool. OK!!! Here is the SAD part. My son.. (for those who met him when he was 2 during the Boston "gathering", has read (and I must say, reads rather well and fast for a 10 year old ((Has reads ALL the other books))). (remember NOMMY SPROUT!??) LoL


Anywho! HE HAS BOOK 7!!!!!! His grandmother had it mailed to the house (of which we are VACATIONING) and I have had my hand SLAPPED many time picking it up
OUCH. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO anyway... I will have to wait till MONDAY to get.. (OH CRAP I did not order my own version) to get Karina's book. :(

Well, I'm just over halfway through the book finally. really enjoying it. Some is going as I would expect, but, many surprises. Still relatively spoiler free, I've heard a couple small things, but, nothing really big, aside from wether Harry lives or dies.
