    I read on /. that some dude got ahold of the book a couple of days before release and copied the entire thing with his phone camera. He then uploaded it as a torrent and let nature take its course.

    I wonder how much it costs, its a kids book so it shouldn't be more then $15 right?

      Not really.. Amazon has it for $18 (US), I believe. List price is $34.99.

      I don't have the book yet. I'll probably get it sometime in the next week. Not in a big hurry and definitely wasn't going to wait in a line of 200-300 people to get it at midnight.

        I don't have a physical copy, just a .pdf. I'm not really a Harry Potter fan, so I'm only interested in the epilouge and the fates of all the main characters.

              That's probably the pirated version. Unless they also sell the book in pdf form.

                Pre-ordered it months ago from Amazon and it came yesterday. Finished in several hours. Pretty good I though I've been reading the books since I was about 8, sad to see it all finally come to an end

                  I won't be getting the book, but it does look good.

                    It's a pirated copy, but it's the same text as found in the books, I've confirmed it.

                          People pirate lots of things, although in my case, I have never had any intention of buying the actual book, so it's not really a financial loss for Scholastic.
