Well,I'm finished...and blown away!Worth the wait and then some.Got the books last night-stayed up until almost two,and then had to take a break for some sleep-JK has really topped herself-reads right along,more questions answered-surprises-it feels like I've gorged on a wonderful,highly awaited dinner for two years,and finished it off way too quickly.I need a cigarette now.

I finished it last night, and it was very well done.

I had planned to take the entire weekend to read it, but I couldn't put it down.

I'll probably read it again in the next week or two.

J K Rowling is one of those authors that I can't stop reading. I have a few others. Orson Scott Card, Lois Duncan, Beverly Cleary, L M Montgomery, Douglas Adams, Carolyn Keene or The Stratemeyer Syndicate (whichever.)

I've read the Harry Potter books at least three times a year since 2000 when one of my neices got me hooked.

I wonder if Rowling will really stop after the 7th book.

I repeat.... NO SPOILERS! I haven't got it yet...

I think any writer who can get 12 year olds to put down thier gameboys and read giant books, should get a medal!

Tried to pace myself and make it last - no good!! Finished HBP this morning over coffee. Now, as always, the "second reading" is underway as I have started listening to Jim Dale's "Book-on-Tape" version.

It has been a couple of days now since I finished it, and well, I am still somewhat, well not sure what, is it just me or was this such a huge departure from the last 5 books?
It seems J.K. threw the whole formula of how she wrote the Potter books right out.
It was a great read, but left me stunned and confused with the ending. And pondering the future of the Year 7, how soon will it be here?!?! And why must it end there?
