    are you claiming this is a book aimed at adults!? No it was originally for children, and children want a happy ending, they can't cope with permanent tragedy! Even Tolkein gave us a happy ending for goodness sake!
    Um... no, I was claiming that not every single children's book has a happy ending..

    ah you are obviously not enough of a hp keeno. there are two covers now, one for kids, one for adults. i think this is more of a marketing technique though...
    Of course I am an HP keeno! The adult covers were only created because adults felt embarrassed seen to be reading a kids book!

    And anyway, my other points still mean I feel confident that things will end happily rather than being left as they are regarding the major incident!

    On another message board a surprising number of people confessed to being turned on by....watching other people write.

    Whatever floats your boat, I guess. I'm now deeply suspicious of all the additional handwriting lessons foisted on me as a child. Pervs!

    To be honest, your hand writing isn't that sexy.

    I don't even have a /copy/ of the new HP book. I'm hoping to scab a copy off somebody and use it to fill the time before I get a lovely package from Amazon.

    I'm in Taiwan, and I managed to get hold of a copy in Kaosihung. It was the same price as in England - about 8 pounds.

    We're still facing the wrath of Typhoon Haitang out here. Its an experience, but we've had to spend most of our time inside so I've had a lot of time to read HP!

    Yep, I don't know too many adults who would sit and read a bright blue and green book on a train! Personally, I like the adult cover better.

    See, that's the reason why they made the "adult version". Is it any more sexy than the child version? I don't think so. It's only there to make the adults less, well, you know, stupid.
