In case you missed the news, there's a new Harry Potter
book coming out Saturday.
The book's publisher, Scholastic, is going to great lengths to keep the secrets of the upcoming book secret until Saturday at 12:01 a.m. when the books go on sale. But, as always seems to happen, there have been two reports of the book making its way to shelves a couple of days early--last week in Canada and this week in New York. The copies have all been rounded up and returned without anyone sharing any secrets and thus preserving the surprise until Saturday.
So, what have I learned here? If I should be wandering about and see the new Harry Potter
book out for sale sometime before Saturday that if I do buy it, I should not brag about it to anyone. Also, that I should pay cash so they can't trace it back to me and make me give it back.
