The problem is, how in the world do I exist for the next week without hearing critical information? How do I go to work? How do I read the news and write blogs? Do I just declare a media embargo and walk around the office with my Ipod on all the time? Or do I just give in and hear about it if I hear about it?
I'm in a very similar situation. I'm getting my copy today from a friend who has already read it, but it's a super busy week, where I need to be focused and clear-headed, so I really can't afford to read it until next Sunday if I'm going to be a responsible person. But avoiding the spoilers is proving to be a real challenge!By Repressed Librarian, at 10:15 AM
Other than my boss, who simply can't not talk about it endlessly and wants to tell everyone the ending, I have not seen so many spoilers around. I'd just not read anything with harry potter in the title. And out in the wild, well, do what you can to not listen.By Crawlspace, at 5:25 PM
Oh, and I did read the thing.
Read fast, Arbitrista!! And wear your iPod. Seriously. most people are respectful of those who have not yet finished, and are willing to stop talking if a non-finished reader is around. Can't wait to hear your review (I finished last night)By Canada, at 12:18 AM
Well I'm only on Book 4, so it will probably be a little while until I can deliver said review. I got through all of Book 3 yesterday, but I'm obviously going to slow down quite a bit now that they're twice as long!By Arbitrista, at 9:17 AM
Oh, I dunno . . . Goblet of Fire was pretty much an all-consuming read for me!!! How's it going, avoiding all the potential "spoiler" conversations?By Canada, at 11:57 PM
Pretty well, actually. I had a close call while surfing the internet last night, but other than that, it's been easy.By Arbitrista, at 6:30 AM
Of course, having a Harry Potter book under my arm or on my desk at all times is a good deterrent......
