Is anyone else excited that The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling is out this week? I know that it won’t be Harry Potter, but I am looking forward to reading it. Especially since it comes out just before the October long weekend here in Australia and I have a five-hour bus ride to fill with a good book.
It is released here on Thursday, 27 September at 5pm. I am not sure whether I should rush from work to the nearest book store and line up with the masses or whether this release will be a more staid affair than the Harry hysteria of the past. Some people queue for iPhone 5 – I am willing to queue for a good book.
I know there’s no rush to get this book, but I don’t want it to be spoilt for me by reading reviews or overhearing someone dissect the plot on the bus. I just want to be surprised.
Are you going to hurry out to get J.K. Rowling’s first adult book or are you happy to read it whenever?
