Phoenix Rising

Another BBC articleAccording to the BBCC. just mentioned that we missed it. We didn't even think about it until at least two minutes later.

The Order of the Phoenix was released a very few minutes ago, over in the UK.

Update: According to the BBC, "The new book went on sale on 21 June in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and in English in many other countries around the world." If this isn't exactly true... given the timezone I'm in requires all of us in it to wait another 5 hours for it.

Related: From another BBC article, this one discussing how many large companies are doing ludicrous degrees of discounting on the new HP book in order to attract customers: "In many cases, it would be cheaper for independent book stores to buy the new Harry Potter from amazon - or their local supermarket - than direct from the publishers."
