  1. I don’t know how long this book is but if it’s anything like the others, how the hell many pages is Rowling planning to read per hour?

  2. Yeah – that’s not possible unless the book is significantly thinner than the others. The Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince audiobook is 18 hours long. On Amazon, it says that Deathly Hollows is 784 pages long, so the audiobook is going to be at least that.

    Maybe she’s just going to read until dawn.

  3. Maybe she reads really fast? Or maybe she has the “Der Klausner’s Cut” where she’ll read only the parts that makes for a good review…
