    Exactly he is wonderful and there is no way I can wait and not read ahead. I am a very fast reader so I will be done by the time we have enough car time to listen to it but I love hearing them a second time around and seeing the girls react!
    This time though the older one will want to read it too very quickly. She had not read OOTP last time when HBP came out so she wasn't chomping at the bit to get it but NOW she is caught up!

    We do, however do a lot of family reading outloud for other books.

    Slightly off topic, but just want to give a big thumbs up for this. We do the same, and it has helped not only decrease TV time, increase reading levels and interest, but it is also just some major quality time for my two daughters and me. We love it.

    Thanks for the picture! I see that the Deluxe edition is priced at $65. My birthday is at the end of the month, so I asked for Borders gift cards to buy my books. I like to get one to read (so I don't mind if any pages get messed up), one to keep, and then the Deluxe version.

    This is about the first book, but I wondered if anyone here is lucky enough to have a first edition of the British title?

    ‘Potter’ first edition likely to fetch magical sum
    Copy of original book expected to sell for up to $20,000 at June 26 auction
    The Associated Press
    Updated: 5:35 p.m. ET June 6, 2007
    LONDON - A first edition of J.K. Rowling’s debut Harry Potter novel is expected to sell for a magical sum later this month, auctioneers say.

    Bonhams auction house said Wednesday that the hardback edition of “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” (sold in the United States as “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”) will likely fetch between $10,000 and $20,000 at a London sale on June 26.

    “That this book would sell for such a large sum is huge,” said Luke Battenham, book specialist at Bonhams. “It’s a phenomenon.”

    Between 500 and 1,000 copies were printed in the novel’s first run, the auction house said. It said publishers typically only produce a small number of copies of new books, before quickly rolling out thousands more editions if a title proves successful.

    The initial run is a fraction of the millions of copies printed for the seventh and final edition, to be released on July 21, just weeks after the auction.

    “The person selling the edition got some prize money in school, went to the bookstore and bought the first book she saw in the window,” Battenham said. “Now there may be others out there who also have a first edition, and have no idea how exceedingly valuable it is.”

    He would not release further details about the seller, but confirmed she is British.

    “The Philosopher’s Stone” was first published in 1997, launching Rowling to fame and earning her a spot on the Forbes list in 2006 as the second richest woman entertainer in the world after Oprah Winfrey.

    The series now boasts a wide fan base, from children to grown-ups, and has resulted in three hugely successful movies based on the book. The Potter books have sold more than 325 million copies worldwide with translations into 64 languages.

    Theme park officials have announced plans for “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. According to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Universal Orlando Resort will spend up to $265 million to build the attraction in Florida.

    I can't wait for this book to come out, so I'm going to be prepared...not going to certain sites for about a week before the release and wearing my iPod on the way to Borders, while I'm in line, and back to the parking lot because people are stupid.

    Mr. Cheddar and I cannot wait for the release of this book. One of the past books was released on the day of our wedding. We had friends pick it up for us that day since we were busy

    I was finishing my MA in literature at Oxford this summer and had the opportunity to visit Christchurch College. Probably I should have cared more about my own college experience, but I was just excited to be studying near the film site. Also spent time studying in the Bodlien, where other scenes were shot. However, this I loved for the right reason: it is a place to honor old books. The most beautiful library I've ever been to.

    I was pregnant with my daughter while I was at Oxford, so she's been to the sites, too, in a way. Thus Mr. Cheddar and I are taking the tiny one to Barnes & Noble for the party starting at 8pm on the 20th, and standing in line for the book at midnight.

    I'd kind of like her to be sorted ... but I'm kind of afraid because I don't want her to end up a Slytherin

    If you type "google" into google you can break the internet.

    We are perusing different sites to see which Book store will have the best party Barnes and Noble or Borders or this museum book store in town. Maybe we will party hop?

    We bought family t shirts that say " I swear I am up to no good" and on the back " mischief managed" dorky I know but they will only be young so long and want to participate in that stuff as a family! I don't know who I am more amazed at wanting to do the shirts my husband or our 12yr old!
