It's official: J.K. Rowling has completed sixth Potter book

Harry Potter readers, here's an extra special holiday gift: J.K. Rowling announced Monday that she has completed the sixth Potter novel, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince."

"I know you all expected this to happen on Christmas Day, but I was sure that those of you who celebrate Christmas have better things to do on the day itself than fight your way into my study, whereas those of you who DON'T celebrate Christmas would definitely prefer not to wait until the 25th," the British author wrote in a message posted on her Web site.

The release date of the book is July 16, 2005!!!

One of my sisters pre-ordered it on Amazon for the three of us (our own copies).  It's like our own lame little book club.

We're stoked.

More book details

I'll more than likely be buying the "Deluxe Edition"

Just a shade under 26 weeks until this bad boy hits the shelves!  \:D/

Sweet!  I've been going crazy wondering how many pages it's going to be.  It's 672 for those who were wondering and too lazy to click on the link.  ;)  And 704 (includes 32 page insert with black and white art from book interior) for the deluxe editon.

I can't WAIT til the book release party my nerd friends are having.  It's going to be so much fun!  26 weeks... DAMN!

Oh and congrats to JK Rowling for the birth of her baby girl yesterday!  No word yet on what she named the kid, though.

Ooh!  How fantastic were those visual effects?  That was an absolutely gorgeous film!

I tease you because I'm a mean old witch.
If I wanted to really make you feel bad, I'd tell you I'm playing in a Quidditch match on Sunday!   And you could totally come with, but oh, no, wait, you're from out of state.  Bwahahahaha!

I've just been informed that JK has updated her official website.  Haven't gotten a chance to look it over yet, but hopefully it's cool.

On another HP related note, I played in a QWC (Quidditch World Cup) tournament yesterday and it was so much fun!  We played the PS2 version, but apparently they have it for GameCube as well.  Anyway, yeah, it was a nerdtastic blast!  Even though I completely got my ass kicked.  Um, yeah so anyway, my point here is that if you haven't checked this game out, you really should.

The GC version is only like $12.93 at Sam's club too.
I want it.

I had no idea there were different covers.  I've only ever seen the Scholastic ones I guess.

Yawn... another silly post in my anticipation of this novel.

Now typically, I'm a Ravenclaw with some Gryffindor leanings according to most of the sorting hat quizzes I've done.

This test is pretty different, though.  I'm glad someone came up with it.  Basically, it's a quiz to tell what mix of Hogwart's Houses you are.

I ended up being a Ravenpuff, which sounds to me like a kinda gross breakfast cereal.  However, the Ravenpuff description was pretty dead on  for the most part.  Especially where it called me "ingenius." ;)

So yeah, quiz away!
