'Give her hell from us, Peeves.'

For more than a month now, I have been working my way through the book-on-tape of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. It's such a long book that I haven't reread it since it first came out, and I thought I probably ought to have a refresher before the movie comes out. The book-on-tape format works well for a book like this - I just pick up where I left off every time I get in the car and don't have to lug that huge tome around. I started it before driving up to Michigan for Christmas, have since returned to Michigan and back, driven all over the Town I Live In and its environs and I am still working on that suckah. The only drawback to this format is that Dolores Umbridge is likely to cause extreme road rage.

I am right around the end of the book now, and ready to pick up Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which I may actually take a crack at rereading in text form. Anyone know if JKR has finished Book 7 yet?

I can imagine how Dolores Umbridge can cause road rage.

She hasn't finished Book 7 yet, but it seems like she's getting close. Maybe that's just wishful thinking. Here's a link to some stuff she said about Book 7 a month ago or so:


Everyone is hoping the 7th Book comes out on 07/07/07, but that seems a little too close to the movie release date to me (which I think is 07/13/07).

It would be nice to have it by Harry's Neville's birthday, too.

The publishers earliest release date isn't until end of 07/beginning of 08 for the new one. She's only halfway through according to reports.


I love audio books, but I prefer mine updated to CD (not tape)!

I don't have a CD player in my car, alas!

What is the verb for consuming a book on tape? Listening? Reading? Has our technology gotten ahead of us?

That would be scary because it's such old technology!
