hehe well that's the american version of the cover, I wonder if I can find an aussie one But I was so surprised to read about it, we had this mini assignment in class and we had to look up on the net and I went to amazon and saw the details, at that time they didn't have a cover release, but I cannot wait for it to come out

What I find really interesting is that they changed the font. Usually the rest of the title is in the Lumos font, and this time it is in a script font. Gods I wish that I could write like that though... I must get a quill and practice, lol.

I know this much: another character is going to die in this book, don't know who though.

I heard one of the main characters is going to die I have a list of facts I found ages ago, it might be interesting to post these and conpare them to the book when it finally comes out ... just to see if you think they are correct or not, I believe most of them

Spoiler:
- By the ends of books 6 and 7 "you'll have all the back story you'll need", says JK Rowling, and a prequel will not be necessary

- There will be a new Minister of Magic, no more Mr. Fudge.

- We will find out what happened to Hagrid's half brother Grawp. He will be a bit more controllable in book 6.

- The Dursleys are in the next book, but Harry's stay with them will be the shortest yet. In book 5 he stayed for 4 weeks, so we know his stay will be less than 4 weeks.

- Cho Chang will not be a romantic interest of Harry in Book 6, however there will be a "little romance" for Harry says JK.

- In books 6 and 7 we will find out exactly why JK killed off Sirius.

- Harry becomes even more powerful in book 6.

- In books 6 and 7 we will find out why Dumbledore trusts Snape.

- We will find out what happened to Wormtail AKA Peter Pettigrew

- More about the animosity between Snape and Sirius will be revealed in the last 2 books.

- JK has said that giving away the form of Snape's boggart and patronus says too much. We'll definitely find out what Snape's worst fear is, and it'll be important.

- Hermione and Draco will NOT end up together in book 6 or 7.

- We will find out what exactly Dudley saw when he looked at the dementors.

- The reason Voldemort and Harry both didn't die when Voldemort tried to kill Harry, will be revealed.

- We will see more of Draco's mother, Narcissa Malfoy, now that Lucius is busy.

- We'll learn more about Harry's scar in the last 2 books.

- Moaning Myrtle will make an appearance again, as will Tonks.

- More about Voldemort's birth will be revealed, thus helping us understand why he is so evil.

- Muggles begin to notice "more and more odd" occurrences in book 6, says JK.

- The wizarding world is really at war in the sixth book.

- Harry will tell his dearest friends about the prophesy after it sinks in to him.

- We will learn more about Harry's relatives, including his grandparents (though JK says they aren't really important to the story)

- We will find out what happened to Sirius's motorbike.

- Book 6 will be shorter than the 5th book (or at least JK's 99% sure, but will not swear on her children's lives)

- There will be no "new" nationalities of children at Hogwarts. Hogwarts is a British school, and JK says that adding foreigners for the sake of it is not in her plans.

- During an interview, when JKR was asked in which Hogwarts room she'd like to be for 1 hour, she said it would be a room in which Harry has been before, but doesn't know its importance. Yet. (this could have happened in book 5, but we're unsure)

- It's very important in the plot that Harry has his mother's eyes, and that her wand was very good for charms.

- During an interview for Kids BBC, Rowling if Harry would have a dragon for a pet. This is what she replied: "You can't tame a dragon, no matter what Hagrid thinks. It's simply impossible. So no. He has more common sense. He MAY have a different pet in the future, but for now, I won't say anything else". (This could have been buckbeak, but I'm sure we can expect more pets)

- In the same interview for Kids BBC, the reporter asked J. K. if Harry had ever used the internet, and this is what she had to say: "No. They (the Dursleys) won't let him go near Dudley's computer, and Dudley is the only one who has a computer. They hit him if he gets too near to the keyboard. So the answer would be No. I use it a lot, but Harry doesn't. Wizards don't really need to go on the web. They have an even better way to find out what's happening in the outside world, which I think is a lot more fun than the Internet, but I'm going to keep quiet on this one."

- The choice between what's right and what's easy will be a pillar of the plot in Harry's last 2 years at Hogwarts
Harry's parents' profession will be a big part of the plot.

- Something HUGE will be revealed about Lily Potter.

ooh, another one of these. I assume that it'll be even longer than the others (Order of The Phoenix took me 3 days to read though) and have some new, secret part of Hogwarts yet again. And if Dumbledore really does have more significance in this one, that's all for the better, I still think we hardly have seen how amazing he is. I don't think this series goes against any Christian rules like some confused people, it doesn't make you percieve life differently, most people will still think "heh, what a strange world it would be if magic existed" before and after reading it.

Wow.. Harry Potter is very stupid IMHO.

But if you guys want to be reading children's books in your mid 20's. That's fine by me.

Actually no, the author herself said so on her official web site.

Deese, where did you get all those facts from?

Technically they are for all ages, they were aimed at children to start with but since they got so popular a wide range of people read them

If I am correct it was from mugglenet, which was quite a while ago, I have had them on my computer for sometime now, I did post them up before the first wipe

Jin, have you ever read the books? There is stuff in there most children would not get, it's made for readers of all ages and it is quite a good piece of writing to be honest.

I remember those facts. I used it as part of my argument of why they shouldn't have emphasized Daniel Radcliff's blue eyes in the movie posters, since it's so important that Harry has his mother's green eyes.

But yeah, I really can't wait to see what happens next... and to find out why she killed off the character she did last time (don't want to spoil it for anyone who has not read it).

The cover is sexy, and the Spoilers were even more sexy. Not in a sexual way though...

I found the website very confusing to look around, the flash thing is good but for holding information and everything, I don't think it goes But mugglenet is a good site

Extra stuff usually has some nice things... it's one site that you have to hunt around to find things on... more interactive. The little hair tie on the desk takes you to a door with a Do Not Disturb sign on it, and when that sign is gone you can open it and get some nice info. Also the rumour thing is rather funny.
