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.
