    There doesn't seem to be as much hype over this one as there was for book 5, like no way near as much press coverage etc. Maybe it will pick up more in the last week =/

    Hmmm, large stone bowl. When I saw that, the Occulumency (sp?) bowl came into my mind.

    I might be way way off here, but what do we think about the boat, the gates and the fire on the book cover? Reminds me of the greek version of hell. With the boat down to the gates? And the big three headed dog? I'm probably completley off the mark, as that would take a bit of a religious twist, and JK hasn't looked at issues to do with God/Devil.

    But hey, that's just what i thought when i first looked at it. xx

    Harry Potter must die! Harry Potter is not a fairy tale, therefore there shouldn't be a happy ending! Harry or Neville, whoever it is, MUST DIE.

    I love reading things more than once, esspecially in things like Harry Potter because you can see if you've missed anything. As soon as I read HBP for the first time, I'm going to re-read it again and read the whole series

    oh i agree, i love reading things again to pick up on all the bits you missed first time, (hence why i just re read the whole series, so am now all ready to read HBP ), and yes i'll be reading HBP twice aswell i think as the first time i know i wont pick up on all the little things rowling likes to pop in, as i'll just be excited that i'm reading it lol, and will only notice the obvious things

    I'm wondering, if there's a pensive in the book cover, could that show an important part in the book? If so, what would it mean; what part would it play? Could it be that occulumency plays an important role? Or that Harry and Dumbledore take a trip to someone's memories-Voldie's or HBP's?
    Just throwing some ideas...

    Well as its on the main front cover of the American one, it has to play an important role in the story.

    Was the red train important in the Philosophrs Stone?

    Was the blue car particularly important in COS?

    Was Buckbeak a main protagonist in POA?

    The eggs were a brief moment in the next one.



    Going along with the other covers, presumably the scene depicted is simply one of note in the book, or one that can be well depicted.

    I believe that probably he is told what to draw, with possibly an extract from an unimportant scene or with a more accurate description from JK.
