    The book was:
    a) leaked onto the net
    b) shipped off early to loads of people in the US by a retailer
    c) reviewed by various big American newspapers
    d) sold early by a number of shops all over the world.

    So much for the £10 million security. The money could have been better spent.
    some shops in America always (accidently) sell the books early, dont they know when the release date is?! lol

    It's not just America though, books have been sold early in Australia, China and Brazil and who knows how many other places.

    Think the £10 million pound security was by Bloomsbury though. From what I've heard all these mess-ups are by Scholastic and companies supplied by them(?).

    JK must be pissed. How could a bookstore be so stupid to start selling the books days before it's out.

    I've read the first 5 chapters, and I keep telling myself "That's enough, wait for the book!"

    But I am week willed. I'm being drawn in, I can't stop!!

    Yeah, all that money. Not to mention the extra publicity for the book.

    Mighty pissed; I'd say!
