We have the last Harry Potter book!!!

I thought that it was under lock and key until midnight July 20 - this coming Friday. But a friend of ours, who shall remain nameless (lets call her Hermione), got two copies from a warehouse where said friend's husband (that would be "Ron") does business and where he was offered the books, casually, for free, by a receptionist!

I told them to sell it on Ebay. I kind of love that they'd rather read it, despite needing the money it might bring them. Though we are only five days out, and it would be horrible if the receptionist got into trouble. I will get it from "Hermione" in the next few days and if anyone is interested I'll post the first paragraph, or the number of pages, or the last paragraph (the last would take some bribing). But I would give a big warning for those who are purists and want to wait for THE day. Here is an article about how seriously the fans take leaks of the book's info. I'd better be careful or I could face being transformed, hexed or sent to Azkaban.
