that's why i always read them the 1st day =/
tough luck 4by4'ing tho
I ban all internet access in my house until I've finished reading. I swear, the first thing on my home page news bit was "Well, Only One More Left" with INTRICATE detail as to how HBP ended. Mean. >.<
One of the benefits of being a speed-reader and almost hypnotically "dragged into" the book when I read it; finished the whole thing over a weekend, almost without stopping, so didn't have time to worry about online spoilers until I was finished. Tip o' th' hat to J.K.R. for writing such an engrossing story, definitely...
Yeah, that's the reason why when I would get the new book in the series, I would read it straight through that night without sleep. HBP actually took me two days, since my friend dragged my sleep deprived carcass out to a fair, but I finished DH in 13 hours!
when deathly hallows came out, I was IMing with a friend that evening, who was reading it around 9pm. I asked my dad for a lift to the PriceSmart (smarmy grocery/kind of other stuff store) where I bought it. I started reading at 10 and was done by just after 1 the next morning. that is the power of potter (every song I was listening to working with the story helped too)
To me it's the journey rather then the destination that is the most important. It's how I avoid the annoyance of spoilers and become an annoyance when I inadvertently spoiler something for someone.
My worst nightmare come true. Part of the book was spoiled for me the LAST NIGHT I was reading it!!! Spoiler tags and cuts should be LAW!!!
