no. No. NO. NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ugh. This makes me so sick. But thank god they will ‘honour pre-orders’.
Apparently, major hypermarkets will be selling the Harry Potter book for about RM69.90 where else the mainstream bookstores are selling it at Rm109.90.
Harry Potter is a phenomenon. You don’t put a discount on phenomenons.
I can just imagine the Harry Potter book sitting on the steel shelves under harsh lightings of your typical hypermarket, it makes me feel so sick. I never buy anything from hypermarkets except food because all other purchases from it doesn’t say a lot for its style.(though I buy some pyjamas and undies from hypermarkets.) The Harry Potter book just won’t be as classy as a Harry Potter book bought from a proper bookshop.
One of my friend’s dad is a big boss in MPH and apparently they withdrew the sale of Harry Potter books from all branches nationwide. OH MY GOD.
Do you know the feeling of buying a Harry Potter book from a bookshop with its wooden shelves and soft lightings, holding it in its taut plastic wrapping as you line up behind the long queue of eager Potter fans, allowing the weight of the book to sink into your fingers? It’s all part of the magic.
When you get into the car, you rip the plastic wrapper and inhale the smell of the new book and indulge yourself in the opening of the book, getting lost in the world of Harry Potter via Number 4, Privet Drive.
Competition can get so ugly.
I refuse to buy my Harry Potter book from anywhere but proper book shops.
I am a huge fan and I will pay my Rm109.90. (at least my brother will, heh. I will have to wait till I get home to pry it off his fingers.)
GRRRRRRRRRRR. PLAY FAIR!!!!!!!!!! Don’t spoil the magic for us!
p/s: I will track the IPs of whoever who dare to reveal spoilers on my blog and kick your ass so hard that shitting will be a bitch. I’ve been trying my best to avoid all spoilers. I’m very proud of myself.
