Hi! How is everyone?

Today's Harry Potter news is

Harry Potter 'secret leaked'

Bookmakers fear part of the plot of the next Harry Potter novel has been leaked.

A betting website has been inundated with bets on the death of Hogwarts' head teacher Dumbledore - all from the town where the book is being printed. The bets were refused by one chain of bookmakers which claimed it was "obvious" the manuscript had been read.

Claims that Dumbledore would die were sparked when author JK Rowling hinted about a death in Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince. Now a mysterious series of events in Suffolk suggests the secret may be out.

A cluster of 50 bets have been placed on Dumbledore being the victim - and it would not take the powers of the boy wizard to deduce what has happened. Most of the bets have been placed in the town of Bungay - which just happens to be where the new Harry Potter adventure is being printed.

Ed Pownall, of the internet betting site Blue Square told The Sun: "We have taken nearly 6,000 worth of bets on Dumbledore in the past seven days. All have been played in Bungay or nearby Beccles. A lot of punters have opened new accounts and placed a maximum bet of ?50 each on what is an obscure market. That made us sit up and take note."

As a result Blue Square slashed the odds for Dumbledore - played by Sir   Michael Gambon after the death of Richard Harris - from 2/1 a week ago to 4/6 before they suspended betting last night. And Warren Lush of Ladbrokes said: "We weren't foolish enough to take the bets. There are obviously people out there who have read the manuscripts."

Printers Clay of Bungay are believed to be helping with the printing of the new book - due to be published on 16 July - although publishers Bloomsbury moved some of the printing to Germany

Isn't this so bad?



Barnes & Noble Stores Nationwide to Host Parties Celebrating Publication of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Stores Will Begin Selling New Book at the Stroke of Midnight, July 15th, 2005

Jim Dale, the Voice of the Potter Books, Will Host the Midnight Magical Party at the Union Square Barnes & Noble in New York City


-- Barnes & Noble, Inc. (the world's largest bookseller, today announced that its stores across the country will remain open late on Friday night, July 15th, and sell the new J. K. Rowling book, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, at the stroke of midnight. Special in-store events and parties are being planned for that evening at more than 660 Barnes & Noble stores.

Jim Dale, the famed actor responsible for bringing the Harry Potter characters to life on audio books and winner of the Audie Awards' prestigious 2004 Audio Book of the Year for his work on Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, will host the Midnight Magic Party at the Union Square Barnes & Noble (33 East 17th Street) in Manhattan.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince continues to top the Barnes & ( bestseller list and has since the book's publication date was first announced last December. Barnes & Noble is offering the title for the discounted price of $17.99, 40 percent off the list price ($16.19 for Barnes & Noble Members). Barnes & will ship the book to customers so it arrives on the Saturday, July 16th, publication date.



Canada can't cope with Potter

Potter book just too big

Where's a magic wand when you need one?

The head of an Altona-based printer has learned he will not be handling the next Harry Potter book, since the novel's print run has become too big for Canadian companies to deal with.

"Harry Potter has outgrown us," said Curwin Friesen, president and chief operating officer of Friesens Corporation, which has printed the last five books in the series.


"It's unfortunate, because we've enjoyed growing with Harry Potter.

"We were publishing them when they weren't very popular, and now they're international best-sellers."

Friesens has printed all or part of the last five books in the Harry Potter series, which charts the progress of the titular teenage wizard as he hones his skills and powers at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

But printing of the sixth in the series, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, will be handled by a single American company, after Potter's U.K.-based publishers decided to consolidate printing in the U.S.

In Canada, a best-selling children's book typically involves a run of about 10,000 copies, Friesen said.

In the case of the new Potter book, more than one million books have already been ordered -- an amount that would overburden a shop of his size and force him to turn away too much other business.

"They'll probably have to dedicate an entire plant (to the run) for between seven to nine weeks," said Friesen, who still has every intention of reading the upcoming addition to the series. "A small printer just can't dedicate their entire facility to that."

The Harry Potter series is the stuff of legend in the publishing world, with five million copies of the fifth book sold in the first 24 hours of release alone.

As the popularity of the series has increased, each book has grown longer and longer, with the most recent -- Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix -- coming in at 870 pages.

British author J.K. Rowling has said there will be seven novels in the series.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is slated for release on July 16.

Arthur Levine talks Hbp on cnn

Arthur Levine, editor of the Harry Potter books forScholastic, was interviewed this morning on CNN. Try as he might, the interviewer was unable to get Mr. Levine or Barbara Marcus, also of Scholastic, to say much about what lies ahead for readers in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. However, Arthur Levine did confirm the identity of a new character thatJo spoke about in Edinburgh last year.

A.J. HAMMER, CNN CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): We've gone straight to
the top to uncover the secrets of the next Harry Potter book. Here at the
publishing company's own book store, we tracked down the publisher of installment
No. 6, "Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince." The magic trick we try to
perform is to get even a hint of what's in the story.

(on camera): Have you read the book?

BARBARA MARCUS, SCHOLASTIC: And it has a -- I'm not at liberty to

HAMMER: You're not at liberty to tell me if you've read the book?

MARCUS: No, we're not at liberty to tell.

HAMMER: Well security pretty tight around here.

(voice-over): The editor wasn't much help either.

(on camera): Does anyone die in the next Harry Potter book?

ARTHUR LEVINE, EDITOR: I can't tell you that.

HAMMER: OK, I can see where this is going to go.


HAMMER: Do Ron and Hermione actually get together finally? There's
been sort of this, you know, a little tension between them. Are they...

LEVINE: You know it's interesting that you should ask that because I
can't tell you that.

HAMMER: OK. Well, here's one for sure you can tell me. Who's the new
minister of magic?

LEVINE: I can't tell you that.

HAMMER (voice-over): There are some facts out there. The sixth book
in the series releases July 16 worldwide, and preorders for the book have
already put it at the top of and's best seller lists.

It has been two years since the fifth book, which has sold more than
16 million copies in this country alone. And just like the last time,
bookstores are planning parties and events to handle the crowds.

MARCUS: Last time, booksellers sold five million books over the
first weekend. We, right now, have 10.8 million copies that are going to be
coming off the press and being sent to book stores, because we know that there are
millions and millions of families and children waiting to read the next Harry

HAMMER: But as for what's in that book.

LEVINE: Well, I can tell you that there is a new character named

HAMMER (on camera): We got a little something.

LEVINE: You got a little something, something.

HAMMER: McLeggen. And McLeggen is?

LEVINE: McLeggen. I'm not going to tell you that.

HAMMER (voice-over): In this case, fans of the story will just have
to read all about it.

Read this .Its too funny-LOL


That line between madness & genius

A fan in full Harry Potter regalia was spotted in a line of movie goers waiting for the "Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith" premier in Portland. When asked what she was seeing she replied "Harry Potter." The Chewbacca to her left and Jedi knight to her right broke out in gales of good natured laughter. A few storm troopers escorted her gratefully to her car.
Sorry dear girl, but November may be a long wait.
