Yeah! Personally, I liked this book much better then Deathly Hallows, well I don’t know about THAT, but much better than 1-5.

I’m thrilled that Half-Blood Prince won three of the awards, and that was nominated for seven of the categories. It is a fun movie with beautiful cinematography.

David Heyman’s gracious comments just remind me how polite and lovely that the HP actors, directors, and various other members of the crew have been over the years. I find that so refreshing. They genuinely seem to respect and appreciate the fans. =)
