Well, I guess this is where Harry Potter finds out that Voldemort has actually transferred all his powers to him for later retrie.... oh wait.. did I spoil it?

Don't worry, I don't know what I'm talking about anyway. hehehe

Is it going to be a global launch? I remember when Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix came out, a lot of Philippine fans were disappointed.

It seemed, there were enough books around that pre-ordering it here in the Philippines was unnecessary. And it turned out that the ones who preordered had to wait longer since they have to undergo extra processing steps to get the book instead of just picking it off the shelf and paying for it.

Me? I'm just going to wait for the movie to come out.
