I have just received my copy of HP And The Deathly Hallows,who else got theirs?

While I have got straight into reading it, there is one thing that I have noticed.On the receipt it states that it is a "Adult Edition", and having no idea what the difference is, I thought I would ask you guys?
I have noticed that the picture on the front cover of the one advertised on sky is different from the one I received, is this the way you would tell the adult one from the childrens edition on the shelves?

Cheers

Mike

I've just been to Asda. They are selling it for a fiver! I think the ony difference between the normal and adult editions is the sleeve.

I know what happens anyway - I read part of the copy that 'made it' onto the internet a week or so ago.. assuming it's true of course.

I actually think that Sean Lock from 8 out of 10 cats is correct. He dies of a peanut allergy!

My Wife came back from work (ASDA) with a copy, £4.50 with her discount :lol: It's not for me though, it's for my daughter who is studying English and educational studies :?

My wife got a copy in Tesco today for nothing because her shopping bill came to £50+. I won't be reading it.

Cheers :wink:

Correction - she bought one, got one free, so we have the child's version and the adult version. How sad is that :roll:

My mum bought me a copy while we did the Asda shop :roll: Being a spoiler junkie it didn't exactly come as a surprise, but it did maketh me to chuckle to think of the dedicated devotees who'd dismissed the photographed epilogue as badly written fan fic... :lol:

I hope you lot will be reading plenty more books the day they are released this year.

More reading and less TV is very good or the mind and imagination :wink:

Apparently the first two were just kids books but since then, as they have got darker, there are two versions. The children's version is watered down a bit.

From the Bloosmbury website:

"The adult paperback version has the same text as the children's one but with a black and white photographic cover."
