The hackers post spoilers ... that's bad enough ... but a New York Times review by Michiko Kakutani review of Harry Potter and the Deadly Hallows ahead of time?
Lindesay Irvine invites readers to have their say on the Guardian blog.
Rowling is staggered.
I'd call it downright kiasu.
Also horribly kiasu in my opinion, is Tesco which, though it doesn't normally sell books in Malaysia, is undercutting all the bookshops by selling the book at just RM69.90. Will the store make any profit at all? Tesco stores in the UK are apparently making just a few pence a copy and presumably the idea is to tempt you to do the rest of your shopping there at the same time.
