I just got word from Barnes and Noble that J. K. Rowling’s seventh and final book in the Harry Potter series is scheduled for release at 12:01am on July 21, 2007. Mark your calendars! You can pre-order it here: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
From the editors: In making the announcement, Lisa Holton, President of Scholastic Children’s Books said, “We are thrilled to announce the publication date of the seventh installment in this remarkable series. We join J.K. Rowling’s millions of readers — young and old, veterans and newcomers — in anticipating what lies ahead.”
So muggles, get your lightning bolt temporary tattoos ready – this is the last time you can really use them – and save the date July 21, 2007!
