HOLLOW BE THY NAME – So J.K. Rowling announces the title of the final Harry Potter book, And the Deadly Hollow, and before the day is out, I'm already receiving an email from Borders telling me I can pre-reserve the thing. Now, understand that Rowling has stated that she's still working on writing the book, so there's no clear date for its publication. Me, I've still got And the Half-Blood Prince sitting on a shelf, only partially read (think I read a rumor somewhere that somebody dies in it?), so I'm personally not inclined to wanna rush her. But the speed with which the chain store pounced on just this small iota of news gives a hint of just how much pressure to produce Miz Rowling must be feeling . . .
