Spoiler-free Zone

Posted: Friday, July 20, 2007 by Travis Cody in

I just want to reassure my Harry Potter-reading blog friends that for the next month, this blog will be spoiler-free. I'm getting my book in just a few hours and as soon as I get home I'll be reading straight through. So I should know all by this time Saturday.

But I don't want to spoil it for anyone who doesn't have the time or opportunity to read through like me. Pam and I changed our plans for this evening because we didn't want to be out at dinner, or at the movies, and have it spoiled for us.

Paranoid and silly? Perhaps. It's only a children's book, right?

Well HARUMPH to you who may think so!! I've been waiting for this through six other books and five films. I'm entitled to enjoy the book without knowing how it ends.

So feel safe venturing here, all ye who want that as well. I'll not disappoint you. I'll simply post a message when I'm finished, saying I've finished. I will gladly discuss the book via email with anyone.

No public discussion about Harry Potter from me for 30 days.

    Such an honorable fan you are.
    Would you believe I have not seen one Harry Potter Movie or read a single page?

    I think I'll rent the movies from Netflix, I'm sure my eldest will like it too.

    Have a great weekend.

    Danielle: I believe it. And it's ok. I guess the stories aren't for everyone.

  1. I heard at tonight's party that fans in the UK posted to Wikipedia around 5:00 p.m. PDT some spoilers.

    I refused to hear any more.

    Since we didn't win a free book at the party, I will await my copy from Amazon and the UPS man. Hubby has a date night scheduled for us; I hope I don't hear anything about it while we're out!

    Wow...this is just so taking the nation by storm. Why I thought spoilers were only for American Idol!

    Tee hee hee!!!

    Songbird: I can't understand that fans would be keen to discuss the book as soon as they finish it. But I can't understand why they don't give others the chance to buy and read it without hearing the spoilers. That's why we changed our plans Friday night - because I was nervous about hearing something in line at the movie. I'm glad we got to read it without knowing anything.

    Julie: It's kind of hard to believe, isn't it?
