Harry Potter Spoilers Spread Story on Internet

How would you feel if the end of the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" were revealed in advance of the highly anticipated release date this Saturday? Well if you're a library or bookstore involved in one of those pajama parties, or J.K. Rowling or Scholastic, you probably would be none too happy.

But according to CTV.ca, both "the Toronto Star and the Globe and Mail published alleged plot details of the final book documenting the adventures of the young wizard and his band of friends.

"What is drawing out the headlines is one particular version of the book that's available on the Internet that seems to be very convincing, that if it's a hoax, it's an elaborate hoax," Kris Abel, CTV's technology expert told CTV Newsnet.

"It consists of a collection of 397 digital photographs that are taken of a physical, paper-bound book, that someone has managed to get their hands on and in a brief period take photographs of each and every picture and upload that on line."

Abel said some of the photos are slightly out of focus and are difficult to read, but much of the book is legible from the images.

Those of you who wish to investigate further, please feel free to do so, but please do not divulge the outcome to those (hey, I don't give a fig but some people do) who don't want to have their fun ruined.

I haven't read a single Potter book or seen a Potter movie. The book comes out soon enough and everyone will know what happened. Knowing a few days ahead of time is not big news. Instead of taking pictures of the book they should have taken a razor to it so they could put it on a flat bed scanner and create a very nice PDF file.
