Avatar Image says:

Hey! What about Beirut/Lebanon????!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

I would really love to know about events in Sao Paulo! Im an american here on holiday and I would really like to go to a midnight event!

Avatar Image says:

Leb-Muggle, are there any parties in Beirut? I’d love to attend one instead of just picking up the book on Saturday morning…

Avatar Image says:

Avatar Image says:

Avatar Image says:

Going to the party in Limrick, Ireland if you’re interested?

Avatar Image says:

Plz tell me if there are any Events in Egypt ( Cairo). I also want to know if they sell american versions of the book there.

Avatar Image says:

theman_geo, i don’t know if there are parties in Lebanon, some say virgin is having one but I’m not sure.

Avatar Image says:

Really, Leb-Muggle? They say Virgin is gonna have one? I really do wish there would be one instead of just picking up a copy at Antoine.

Avatar Image says:

theman_geo, remember that the american is found at Antoine and not at Virgin ( they the sell british one) plus i’m not sure about the party but u can call. As for the movie it will be released on July 19 at Empire but do u know the time?

Avatar Image says:

Well, Leb-Muggle, if it’s any help i can give you the empire theater website, i dunno about the showing times. here’s the link anyway: http://www.circuitempire.edison.secure-xp.net/index.aspx .

Avatar Image says:

Oh, and thanks for mentioning that the american one is sold at antoine, i was wondering (I’m kinda new here, so I wouldn’t know…)

Avatar Image says:

Welcome ES KAY, I checked the site before there is nothing until now. We have to wait.

Avatar Image says:

I hate waiting, i used to live in the US so i never had to wait for the movie, you know, it’s pretty annoying to have to wait a week longer when everyone’s already seen the movie and there are spoilers all over the place (not that i dont enjoy reding them, but it makes me a tad bit jealous)...

Avatar Image says:

Leb-Muggle, I’ll be watching the movie on Thursday at Grand Cinemas ABC, if you want to know the show times I think you should visit their website on the release date. As for the book, I already paid for my copy at Librairie Antoine but if there’s a party at virgin I may go, it’ll be fun.

Avatar Image says:

Yeah we r used to waiting. Goblet of Fire was released about a month or more after the release at USA! It makes me feel sad that Harry Potter events ( book and movie) are not getting enough attention!

Avatar Image says:

Yes I know! From what ive seen, tho, i think Lebanon has quite enough HP fans so that something can actually be done for the reease of (atleast) the book. Too bad there won’t be another chance to try, though, i cant believe be reading DH one week from now…

Avatar Image says:

release* (i go crazy about typos)

Avatar Image says:

Hey Bianca (5th comment) There are at least 4 or 6 partys in Sao Paulo, maybe more if you get in touch with someone from fan clubs. 3 of them in the 3 different Livraria Cultura stores (Shopping Villa Lobos, Shopping Market Place and Paulista – Conjunto Nacional). 1 in Saraiva at Shopping Morumbi. There will probably be party in the Fnac stores, but I cannot confirm that for you. Just be prepared to get your dinner early or after you get the book, because the stores will open the box at Midnight GMT, which means 8PM local time.

Avatar Image says:

Wow! DH!! I can still remember the day i turned the first page of the fifth book ( yes i started with book 5 and I don’t know y)!!!

Avatar Image says:

to Egymuggle.. u can get the amrican version froim the AUC bookstore.. virgin didn’t sell Half-blood prince in the american version.. though it did for the first 4 ones!!

Avatar Image says:

Hem hem,what about South Africa? hehehe couldnt resist, Professor Umbridge Exclusive books and Fasination books seem to be the major bookstores in SA with parties for the release of DH.Party times differ some start at 9pm and others start at 12am.SA Fans note that the book will only be released at 1am as they want it to be on target with the Uk release,arg I hate time zones

Avatar Image says:

Anyone in Tehran, Iran here? I’m going to Salis Publication at midnight to get my copy. If you’re interested too, email me at azadeh_au at yahoo dot com

Avatar Image says:

Is anyone wondering why Melissa wants to know? Maybe for her book?

Avatar Image says:

Thank you so much Numfar PTB! I will try to go to the one in shoping paulista. If the book is for sale at 8, I will be able to go for sure! How can I contact hp fan clubs here?

Avatar Image says:

Sweettt!!!I’m going to one here in Rio! For sure I’ll go!And send you an email :)

Avatar Image says:

I don’t know if anyone here is intrested, but if you are in Auckland, New Zealand on July 21st and can get to the Boarders on Queen St a large lot of Leaky people that I have met are meeting there.

Get there – bout 9am on the 21st Book Released – 11:00am 21st Read and disscuss – As long as we can

Avatar Image says:

Hey Bianca….there are three main events scheduled to take place in Sao Paulo. One at the FNAC store and another at the CULTURA library, both in the beautiful Paulista Av., at 8 pm.And another in the CULTURA library of the VILLA LOBOS shopping center, at 8pm too.

I’m gonna be at the paulista’s cultura. Hope to see lots of you there!!

Avatar Image says:

Melissa:I get it, and if you manage to do it, this is really gonna rock. This is a frickin’ cool idea.

For the others: don’t keep asking for your local city. That’s not the problem. Read again the post and try to decipher why she asked for those cities…

Avatar Image says:

Hey Pierre since you are all-knowing why don’t you shed some light on us and tell us what you think is going on???

Avatar Image says:

It has something to do with time zones I’m guessing.

Avatar Image says:

Pierre, what do you mean? Can you please explain what’s cool?

Avatar Image says:

is there one in vancouver, BC? id love to come and bring a few very dedicated fans with me…lol ;)

Avatar Image says:

Nothing for us Indian fans???

Avatar Image says:

(yes i know you posted ysterday but what the heck)...Yea i started on Book 5 as well! I read it, had no idea what was going on, read the rest of the books, and got hooked just in time for HBP (i had ootp for 2 years before i decided to read it)!

Avatar Image says:

WHERE’S INDIA LISTED…....

Avatar Image says:

:) :) Yeah HBP! The shock of my life :( :(

Avatar Image says:

I don’t remeber if i felt shocked with HBP, Leb-Muggle, all i did was understand what was goin on, really, i was only 11 when i read it, so i ddnt really feel the shock, i just accepted what was going on as canon, i didnt whoop with the H/G kiss, didnt feel betrayed by snape, didnt cry when dumbledore died. DH, however, o boy, 2 years of letting the fandom and theories ferment in my head, i’ll be feelin’ them emotions like i was the characters themselves.

Avatar Image says:

oh u were so young. I’m sure we will all be surprised after reading DH. I just hope that it won’t be so sad ( i know it will!!!) 5 days!

Avatar Image says:

South Africa people: dont forget about Wordsworth! and there is nothing wrong with getting the book at 1:01am! its the exact same moment as britain.

Avatar Image says:

hello guys! I’m from Brazil. As far as I know, Livraria Cultura, one of the biggest bookstores in Brazil is selling HP and The deathly Hallows since 20/07 at 20h. They are already having lots and lots of activities for Potter fans and they have many fun prepared. I know that there are some activities prepared for Brasília, São Paulo, Recife and Porto Alegre. for more info, check here:

There will be 2 parties, at least, in Curitiba / Brazil. Although the city is not on your list I’ll drop you a line.

Avatar Image says:

Hello! I know of all of the events in Rio and I am organizing one of them (it is listed at Potter Parties and at Bloomsbury website). Let me know if you need anything! I’ve sent you an email, Melissa.
