Usually I am the Spoiler Queen, I am the very person who wants to know the all important twist in the plot before she sees the film (Or more usually because she has no intention of seeing the film, it sounds awful, apart from the twist so she just wants to be told that please)
Well I am not going to be buying "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows"until I get back to the UK, so I'll be a solid month behind everyone else. Some of you may even have finished it by then, so please bear in mind that for once I want it to be a surprise.
I could easily buy a copy in North Carolina, it is just as big a deal, however I don't want to do that for two reasons:
- The American cover art is very ugly, and it wouldn't go with the rest of my Harry Potter books.
- The spelling is altered, along with some of the words, for the American market. This means that Mrs Weasley knits sweaters instead of jumpers, because here a jumper is a type of dress. I'm sure you'll appreciate why that is unacceptable.
In the mean time I have three new Diana Wynne Jones books to read, specially purchased in the UK before we left. I am actually more excited about those I think. Ah Chrestomanci!
