All you geeky types, hold on to your keyboards. JK Rowling announced today that the sixth book in the Harry Potter septology, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (HP & THBP) is COMPLETED and has been delivered to her English-language publishers who hope to announce a publication date tomorrow. Keep your wands at the ready and say a little incantation for Jenn, who still hasn’t read Order of The Phoenix, though she did threaten to start last night. Maybe this news will spur her on.
UPDATE: Release date for the new novel is July 16, 2005.
UPDATE II: Less than 24 hours after it’s release date was announced, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince sits at the top of Amazon’s book chart.
