09:36 am - When Harry met Marci.
I'll be getting my copy of the 7th Harry Potter at some point, probably this week. So with that in mind.

Poll #1026341 HarryPotterVII

Since book III, I've read the books one chapter per week (until I couldn't stand it anymore). For this book should I...

Read one chapter a week.
0(0.0%)
Read one chapter a day.
4(25.0%)
Read it all (relatively) at once.
12(75.0%)
Other.
0(0.0%)

Before you enter your ideas, let me just say that I'm not doing any measure that's not easily managable, like a chapter every other week, or one a month, or one a year, because then there's the issue of trying to remember what week is which and when I should read. Now, your thoughts:

because...

You know you want to.
2(12.5%)
You want to savour the book.
0(0.0%)
You want to get it over with.
0(0.0%)
It's too good to wait on.
1(6.2%)
It's too horrible to prolong.
0(0.0%)
If you wait too long, people will spoil it for you.
5(31.2%)
Other.
1(6.2%)

Your explanation of why I should read Harry Potter in a particular way:

For statistical analysis, I'll need some demographic information. You are...

someone who's read this book, and all the others.
8(50.0%)
someone who's read all the other books, but has not yet read this one.
5(31.2%)
someone who's never read Harry Potter (and probably never will).
2(12.5%)
someone who's never read Harry Potter, but may in the future.
0(0.0%)
someone who's never read anything.
0(0.0%)
a troll who is posting only to post spoilers.
0(0.0%)
a troll posting for some other reason.
0(0.0%)
Other
1(6.2%)

karnil,
Yes. I can wait patiently to know what's going to happen. In a week or two, no one will even be talking about it. I know of what I speak, because, as I've said, I've done this last few books and the only one who's been bothered by me waiting months to get to the end has been lensedsqo.

The impetus for doing this originally, in fact, was to linger over the books, not having to wait as long between books as everyone else. It's like going to a buffet -vs- a fondue party. You can eat your full in 10 minutes and walk around feeling bloated and uncomfortable afterwards, or you can eat very slowly, talking between bites, and turn it into a relaxing, long, and slow affair.

There's no rush to complete the book because I don't feel like I'll miss out on anything. I'm not playing in any HP games that require me to be up on canon. I'm not going to a book club to discuss it. In short, there really rush.

Sue,
Thanks for the offer, but I'm getting it from the Scottish import store, so I'm all set.

I figure I've already waited 2 years..I wanna read it NOW. MUST KNOW EVERYTHING NOW!!!!! *falls over in a fit* I hate waiting..hate it. I read the book in about 8 hours. It was all that was awesome except for some bits. I will warn you, I will mention the book at some point in the next few months, totally forgetting that you haven't read it yet, and probably regale you with spoilers. I'm sorry in advance.

The only reason I wasn't visibly upset about you not reading it the last time was 'cause I really really wanted to discuss it with you but you weren't reading it so I tried to pretend it didn't happen. No book, no talkie marci, no spoil for her. But man, it was hard. I didn't have anyone to talk to about it. :( Yer my readie friend.

Read it soon or I'll send you more books and hoppie will be all mad. :)
