The books have given me the sense that Hogwarts is not the kind of place one can physically construct with the existing laws of gravity and physics. And while I'm sure technology can do amazing things (I bet they'll make a killer wall leading to platform 9 3/4), seeing someone's rendition of Hogwarts colors the way I've imagined it. I'm not sure I want to give that up.
Two years ago, we were in Maine when the book came out. I had no trouble getting it the next day, and read the entire book sprawled on a floatie on the lake. It took me five hours, and the sunburn I had afterwards was well worth it. If I'm in Maine again, and, that book may very well end up in the lake.Click to see Spoiler:any of Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Fred, or George die,
