Picked up the new Harry Potter book at the library today. Read the first two chapters on the bus ride home. Felt like blogging it. Didn’t want to “spoil” anything for those who check the blog’s main page on a regular basis. Decided I would try something new. Any comments I make about the book will be posted not as “updates” to this post, but as “comments”, which are hidden from the main page. So if you click on “comments”, be prepared for spoilers galore. But I’ll break ‘em down and line ‘em up by chapter, so if you’re part-way through the book and want to see what I think of just the first half-dozen chapters or so, then it shouldn’t be too hard to avoid reading spoilers from the rest of the book.
