I want it NOW.

All I want is the damn Harry Potter book. I’ve been waiting for two years to read it and all the chatter about leaks is not making it any easier.

For the record, I am not interested in the stupid spoilers of, “Oh, so and so dies in this one,” and “This person is really a death eater.” I want the whole damn thing.

Some ambitious dude got a hold of a copy of the book, took pictures of every page and then uploded the whole book to photobucket to share with the world. Genius, fellow! The problem with this is that I didn’t find out about it until AFTER Scholastic pressed charges and took them down. Bastards!

Now, before you go telling me about how it’s not fair and the suspense is part of the magic, blah blah blah, please remember that we’ve already been waiting TWO YEARS for this final installment about our favorite wizard, and that's quite a lot to ask in the first place.

And just for the record, yes, I’d still buy the book even if I read it online ahead of time. I also buy the audio books, because I am that freak who reads and listens to the books ceaselessly, and can quote random facts that not even the administrators of some of the most popular Harry Potter fan sites could. In fact, rather than buying an i-pod based on how many songs it could fit, I shopped for the one that I calculated could hold all seven audio books.

So yeah I’ve been waiting two whole years for this book, what’s another two days, right? I think the real question is: What on earth am I going to do with myself when the series is over?
