Perhaps we slightly overestimated the whole Potterdämmerung thing. Live and learn! In any case, this is the last time I’m googling it.
All is well
Maybe now that the book is out there can be a little less bemoaning? Or not. In any case, I got a wrap to do so I’ll just point y’all towards Andrew Wheeler’s HP round-up.
So we learned yesterday a possible source for those leaked Hallows – a distributor shipped books early. (Although it should be noted that the first of the ‘carpet book’ pictures – the full leak – showed up over the weekend.) Unsurprisingly, Scholastic says they’ll be taking legal action. Meanwhile, leak coverage continues.
HERE THERE BE SPOILERS! YAAR!
And here’s one for Yav: Hogwarts Professor, Thoughts for the Serious Reader of Harry Potter.
The news that somebody uploaded photos of (probably) every page of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” several days before its official release date did not stay as buried as Scholastic and Bloomsbury might have liked: It was on the front page of the New York Times site, for one thing, and the AP picked it up as well. Spoilerphobes had better head to the back of the cave. Where is Sir Dan with his blindfolds when you need him?
