Harry Potter

Half a dozen people on my friends list have now expressed fear of being spoiled for the new Harry Potter book, which has me now slightly afraid of the same thing. What? Fear is catching.

One reason I'm worried is that Shannon and I will almost certainly be reading the book aloud together, which means we'll be reading it very slowly. It'll take us weeks. So everyone else will find out the ending right away, but we'll have to wait. More time to get spoiled.

I can only hope that I don't currently have people on my friends list who consider cut tags and warnings unimportant. I still remember getting spoiled for the end of one of the Buffy seasons by some douche bag who was immediately removed from my friends list. I'm still bitter about it.

That said, I'm excited about the book. We ordered it from one of our local independent bookstores, so we'll no doubt be collecting it on Sunday. Yay!

Rest assured you won't be spoiled by me! I've only read the first of the HP books. I think it's incredibly crude to discuss any plot details in a venue where people can't protect themselves from being spoiled. A few people I know are reporting hearing HP7 spoilers in in-game chats, among other unrelated and uncensorable places. Even though I can't be spoiled for lack of interest, it's infuriating the lack of consideration (or indeed malice) toward others.
