Technorati’s blog has a post today about the upcoming 6th book in the Harry Potter cycle: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Depending on how you look at things, I’ve either failed to plan or planned to fail, since I didn’t pre-order the book. Doing so now seems kinda silly since the release date is only two days away. I’m thinking I’ll just stake out the local Barnes & Noble on Saturday afternoon. We have another 2-year-old birthday to attend so we’ll be out and about.
1) Jenn still hasn’t read Book 5: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
2) I downloaded the audiobook version of Book 5 and put it on the iPod for us to enjoy while we were on vacation, but we never broke out the iPod. For any reason. Weird.
3) Dottie bought the audiobook on CD for the exact same reason. We didn’t listen to that version either
4) I really need to work on my counting skills.
UPDATE: Per the comments, I’m well aware of the new Pope’s stance on Harry Potter which really isn’t that different than the previous Pope’s opinion, it’s just more tersely worded. As I’m not a Catholic, it really doesn’t matter one whit to me what some wizened German dude in robes and big hat thinks, so I’ll happily plunk down my hard-earned cash for the new Potter. Damnation be damned!
