release date!


Scholastic, the US publishers, will sell the book for $34.99; it will be illustrated by Mary GrandPre, the artist who illustrated all six previous books. They will also release a $39.99 reinforced library edition and a $65 special edition at the same time. British publishers Bloomsbury said via press release that it will sell the hardcover for 17.99 GBP, and will also release a special gift edition and a joint audio book.

The news item came quickest via J.K. Rowling's site at 7 a.m, which simply read:

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be published on Saturday 21st July 2007 at 00:01 BST in the UK and at 00:01 in the USA. It will also be released at 00:01 BST on Saturday 21st July in other English speaking countries around the world.


Meep! Okay..torn about the news but seriously, if you weren't going to release it for 07\07\07 then it should be release 07\31\07 (his birthday). At least I think that...well the 21st is divided by 7 so whatever. I'm not ready for it to be over...and I'm going to be hyped enough about OotP and now this...ack! Oh well.

I wonder if you can pre-order the special edition online...

I'm just thinking...by July 22 it'll be all over. I'll be done with it and no more will come after. It's the end of an era!

My first thought when I read the article was "NO! I'm not ready for it to be over!" I'm gonna cry not matter how happy (or sad) the end is.

Same :(
I'm not ready for the end and I'll bawl no matter what. If Harry dies, I'll bawl even more then usual hehe.
Imagine the people going to Sectus in London...they will be at that awesome gathering, they'll want to see the movie, and now the book! Poor people.

Eeeee how exciting! I'm gonna read all the others over again (one chapter every day to draw it out and really get me in the mood), and I figured out I'll need to start next Friday.

Really? If I read one chapter a day from all six books it'll end on the 20th?
I think I'll do it too!

Yeah if you start SS on the 9th of Feb, you'll read the last chapter of HBP on the 20th. I was pretty careful but I may be out by a chapter or two but that should become obvious when it gets closer and I can just compensate for that.

This is bellelvsbeast!

If you're going to wait I'll put things behind a cut...though it'll probably be spoiled for you anyway by the internet in general.
