Harry Potter Spoiler Free

I think someone should come up with an icon that says "This blog is Harry Potter Spoiler Free!". Not that I've read any spoilers. Just saying.

On a side note, I passed by PowerBooks Megamall last night and on in front of their display case were sealed boxes of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows. It was sealed in tape that read "Do not open until July 21, 2007". There's just one security guard patrolling that area.

It's one of those instances when you want to watch and see if there's actually a fan crazy enough to break the glass and steal a box of books (which isn't as easy as it sounds because the books will be heavy). It adds excitement to fandom. =) But no, bibliophiles are responsible people. The most unlawful stories I've heard is that bibliophiles shoplift and figure out subtle ways to remove the price tag so they don't get caught.

Hehe. I saw those boxes, too. They also have a couple of boxes inside the shop na naka-display dun sa may HP table. Hinawakan nga namin ng friends ko. Nakaka-tempt! o.0

Well, I once saw a couple of guys shoplifting in a bookstore and they didn't look like any bibliophile. (More like regular thieves, actually.)
