This Blog Entry is 100% Harry Potter Spoiler Free
Apparently, for a brief window yesterday morning, the new Harry Potter book was available online.
Some rightfully ticked-off lawyers filed cease-and-desist motions and they came down. Personally, I don't know what inspires a soul to do this. Regular distribution is only a couple days away, and it's not like there's any kind of prize for being the first to read it.
I'm told the download was simply photographed on every page turn. A couple of sites presumably had it available for download as a PDF. Since the pages were actually photographed, I guess that would mean two pages per photo, or about 398 PDF pages.
Some of the pages are blurry, but save for a few paragraphs, the story can be made out from end to end.
Or so I have read.
