Our favorite author, J.K. Rowling, has updated her website & announced the release date of Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows: July 21, 2007. Gracious. That’s this year.
What the hell was she thinking in announcing the release date? Doesn’t she know what it did to me?
Once again, this brought up another batch of conspiracy theories. Why July 21? What is so special with that date? A quick check on Wikipedia unearthed a lot of interesting events, births, & holidays. (One thing came close: the anniversary of the London bombings.)
The announcement was done very J.K. Rowling style — no fireworks, scavenger hunt, online easter eggs, etc. Just a simple news release on jkrowling.com. I guess she figured out the announcement in itself will be too much (it was for me).
The book can now be pre-ordered in Amazon.com. The published price is $18.89 .
Whew. Remember the date, guys! (That’s goes for you too, Jim. You swore to love me forever, & give me all my Harry Potter books.)
