Hmm.. fire, trails, but not really poi-related. Sorry. More like a big "e".

Is this book out already? Not sure if i havent had enough of Potter actually. And while we're on the subject, where si this years harry potter film? Surely he'll be too old to play the part of the right year group soon?

Tomorrows World isnt on anymore...Does that mean its tomorrow now?

No it's not out yet (where have you been? You can't miss it in any book shop, on any website but this or in any paper wink ), and November for the film.

I don't rate the books at all, can't stand the way JK writes, but I really enjoy the films for some unknown reason. I'm really looking forward to the next film, loved the last one.

They probably put some spell on the rope to make it stand still so they could make the cover photo ;-)

Harry potter... muh who cares...
the movies could have sooooo much more to them. plus a little more realistic could be good and not so much dodgy SFX

Books 1-3 = Very Good.

Everything else = Mediocre/ slightly above average maybe.

IMO anyway...

After much consideration, I find that the view is worth the asphyxiation.

kids have only bought the rest because they got addicted to the first couple and can't let a story die.

the story cant die! Im not a kid,and my addiction to harry potter is based on illogical irrelevance to everything, not just the first two books.

Long live Harry!

Watch out Mark1! J.K.R might try to "do" you for stealing a copywrite she "stole" wink *gasp* (Can i say that? Its just imo)

They were saying, on the news, that someone censored up and they started to relese the books early! Ie they were on sale! But they realised and stoped again confused Atleast someone scored. Wonder if anyone is selling their copy on e-bay early. Make abit of money i reccon.

thanks for the help FoxInDocs, but its not that i can't find the key, my keyboard is very messed up, if you hit the key with a question mark on it you get this instead - so basically all the keys functions are swithched around so that you just have to hit keys until you find the punctuation you want, it's a joy to type with let me tell you

about harry potter, there are some major problems and plot holes it those books and harry is probally the worst main character [characterization wise] that i can think of, but i also love the books, mainly because they are something ive grown up with, [ive just turned 16, like harry]

and besides, i love seeing hundreds of kids line up in the middle of the night to get a 700 page plus novel

peace

Poi? Nah. Harry and the wizard guy are clearly spinning clubs.

Let's turn those old bridges we crossed into ashes.
We'll blaze a new trail,
and torch the rough patches.

I havent read it yet, I have to wait for my sister to finish reading it before I can frown

A few of my friends are reading it and say something happens at the start, but it is obvious... grr! I soo wanna read it!

We were talking about it in french today and one of the girls cant stand it as "it gives a miconception about Wiccans" or something like that...
