* BBC News reported in September that Sandra Luchian, 15, from Moldova, managed to hand-copy the 607-page "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," filling five notebooks, after borrowing it from a friend in the U.K. (since it was not available anywhere in Moldova and she couldn't afford to have it shipped to her). She said it took her about a month. [BBC Newsround, 9-23-05]

-- So, just a headsup. I may not have much internet access the next couple of days. If I can, I will post, but I won't be able to do replies until likely Monday on any comments. If I can't post I will try and get one of my designated posters from my real life too, and if they can't... well, then you'll all just have to be patient. ;) I got things I gotta attend too. Love you all! See you when I can. :)

I suppose that if you are going to copy out a book by hand, that one is probably worth it. But her hand must really hurt!

That's pretty hardcore fandom right there. Of course, I've only read the first book so far, so maybe it is worth it?

See ya when you return!

Oh, it really is. The books don't start getting great until Azkaban and it's onward and upward from there.

Dude, hardcore. Also, what a shitty friend to not just give it to her, or photocopy the damn thing *L*

Good luck for whatever you doing, hope you have a fantastic weekend!

that is interesting... makes me want to do something like that... just to say i have done it.

of course i would do catcher in the rye, it is only fitting.

you would really get to know the style and author better if you did that though

That is a VERY good point. You'd totally be a scholar of her writing if you did it with all six books@
