How Long Is Long Enough?

Beth has done it, Jenny is doing it at work, Rae is doing it right now and I want to get to it quickly. Ren even did it backwards.

Of course I’m talking about reading Harry Potter. My problem is that as the days tick by I am at increasing risk of finding out The Way It Ends, and I really don’t want to. I’m going back to work tomorrow so I will have even less time to make a start, let alone finish the book, and I’m worried.

How long is it before people will assume it’s safe to start talking about The Deathly Hallows without giving out a spoiler warning? Maybe the world needs to set some sort of cut off date, taking in mind recently arrived time consumers.

  1. Har Har Har!…thats my evil I’ve read it too pirate laugh.

    I’m not talking about it yet…

    I would say a couple of weeks

  2. I’m petrified someone is going to ruin it for me! I always re-read the series when a new one comes out and I’m nearly finished Half Blood Prince… I almost don’t want to read it because then it’s all over!

  3. I think Jen has it about right. I haven’t read it but do know the ending and juicy bits (thank YOU, Internet … really, thank you …) and I won’t talk about it even casually for at least a fortnight to avoid spoiling for anyone. After that, it might slip out (I’ll be less careful anyway).

  4. I’ll be putting up a post, but there will be a big frickin’ sign that says spoilers and a whole bunch of nonsense for a paragraph or two just in case someone has “first paragraph/sentence” checked on their RSS feeds.
