JK Rowling bypasses mainstream reporters for Harry Potter release.

Here's a nice story. Instead of going large with the press release, J.K. Rowling has decided to unveil Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (book 6 of 7) to a more intimate group of 70 cub reporters between the ages of 8 and 16 on Sunday, July 17.

The lucky brats get a free signed copy of the book and my eternal jealousy. Just after midnight on July 16, Rowling is going to read excerpts from the book to the kids in, no less, the Great Hall at Edinburgh Castle.

Jealous, jealous, jealous.

Do you think 35 is too old for Make a Wish? Maybe they could hook you up. That does sound too incredibly cool to be true!

It's funny that you say that, because I keep thinking up things to Make A Wish for. This would certainly be near the top of the list, although a day with properly working lungs is climbing the charts, too.
