Harry Has a Cover

cover of bookThe cover art for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was released recently. (Very nifty bit of web coding on the publisher's site. How do they do that magnifier trick?) As usual, the British/Canadian editions come in adult and children's versions, both different from what we will see on the Scholastic edition.

We found ourselves having a parking-lot conversation with someone who sports a "Trust Snape" bumper sticker, wondering about just what J. K. Rowling is going to do to end the series. Will she dare to make an entire globe full of readers unhappy? Etc. And this for a book still more than three months from publication. Only thirteen holds so far. We've ordered 30 of them, so if you put your hold on soon you'll get your copy in the first wave, on July 21 exactly.
