I imagine I'm about the only person in the universe at the moment not reading the latest Harry Potter this weekend. :) But I expect I'll be shutting myself away next weekend to read it. The reason is that [personal profile] elgrey  the Magnificent sent me the UK version for my birthday, so it hasn't arrived yet. But that's okay because I've got the entire set in the UK version, thanks to her, and the Nephew and Nieces got my American collection (also thanks to her!). So I am very happy to wait until it gets here. I only need to be carefuly of spoilers, and so far everyone is being very considerate and careful about that.

In the meantime, I finished Inkspell, the sequal to Inkheart, and this series has easily become one of my favorite book worlds ever.  [personal profile] elgreyand I just found out this morning that the author, Cornelia Funke, is going over the final draft of the last in the series and we should be getting it in English in 2008. I really can't wait.

I absolutely love stories about people interacting in book worlds. I was fascinated by Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next novels. Which reminds me, I need to see if there's a new one out there. I've got 4 of them, and I thought I heard something about a new one coming out in the not-so-distant future. Must investigate...

In the meantime, I hope to finish up The Golden Compass (aka Northern Lights to everyone but Americans, apparently) by Philip Pullman before Harry Potter shows up at my front door. Golden Compass has been on my bookshelf for ages, and its time has finally come.
