No i haven't finished it, or even started it, but i figured there's going to have to be a thread about it.

All i have to say is that when i preordered it for kindle, i don't think i knew it would be 17.99!!!!!! what a rip off! soooooo expensive! the grocery store i work for has the hardcover for 40% off so it's $21. and you get an actual book.

$17.99 for an ebook is a bit pricey, but... rowling probably has a crazy advance at this point. the publisher has to cover the advance, pay for editing and production of the ebook and printed book, pay for/handle distribution, and shell out for marketing (including that faceout, first table spot at your local Barnes & Noble). primarily, though, it just came out, so it'll command a premium for a while. couple months and you'll be able to pick up a remaindered copy for less than half of cover since the print run is probably astronomical.

i saw it yesterday at the bookstore, it was 40 dollars just like any other book here (hardcover books are usually between 40 and 70 USD here, a softcover might run you 20-40 USD). i think i'll wait until i can get it from the library!
