Every body is waiting for midnight today to be off and get the last of the Harry Potter Series. I haven't yet preordered anywhere. I would like to know where I could get the book cheapest and what edition should I be buying if I bother about the price. I don't understand all this stuff about hardcover, paperback etc. Can someone throw some light where and what to buy so that I am not at a loss tomorrow to know what exactly I am going to buy?

What edition is it? I was told that Paperback will take a few more month to come out. is that true?

The list price for the hardcover is $34.99, plus tax where I am. I'm going to buy it at discount for $20.99 plus tax at midnight from Barnes and Noble. I stood in line today to get a bracelet. It will be hardcover (the more expensive variety) when you go. Paperback won't be out for a few months.

Oh, then how come Walmart and Target are giving it in a lower price? Oh my God, is it better to preorder then? Heck... this is so confusing...

it depends on where you go. walmart has it for like 15.00 here, books a million is 20.00 , target is 21.00, and there are a few other places but they are even higher. i think it just depneds on where you go.

I will be going to Wal-Mart at midnight. I did the same thing for the sixth book. The previous reply was right...paperbacks are generally released a few months later. When I got The HBP, the price listed on the inside cover was 29.99. But it cost something like $15 at Wal-mart. I looked on their website and it will be seventeen something for this one. But I would rather just go get it so I can start reading as soon as I get home. So, to sum it all up, you will be getting the hardback edition if you get it tomorrow. (Which I prefer in the books I buy. But as for the ones I get at the library, I don't care!) And the price will depend on where you buy it, and what they decide to charge. Hope you enjoy it, I know I will!

Thanks for clearing up my confusion. Walmart is a bit far from my home. So, I am thinking of buying from another store nearby. Someone else suggested Target which is nearer, so I may give a try there.
