Sneak Peek

Finally pre-ordered my copy of Deathly Hallows yesterday. Even asked the guy whether they would open on time next saturday - 7.01am. Ordered at Times Bookshop 1U, 20% discount.

OK, for the sneak peek. In a trailer for the forthcoming ITV documentary, A Year in the Life... J K Rowling, the camera lingers long enough on a printed manuscript of the novel, dated 23 October 2006, to make the opening visible to the eagle eyed. It reads:

'Chapter One - The Dark Lord Ascending.
The two men appeared out of nowhere, a few yards apart in the narrow, moonlit lane. For a second they stood quite still, wands pointing at each other's chests: then, recognising each other, they stowed their wands beneath their cloaks and set off, side by side, in the same direction.

"News?", asked the taller of the two.

"The best," replied Snape.'
