Yahoo! News has a rather interesting article detailing how J.K. Rowling is asking HP readers to not spoil the ending for those who haven’t read the book yet.
We’re going on three months until Deathly Hallows is released, and you can bet that some people already know what happens. I’m looking at employees at the publishing house, and, of course, the editors, among others. I can imaging the temptation that some might feel to be the first to release the info on who gets the whack. But, really, who can they blab to?
The HP sites, as stated in the article, aren’t going to broadcast that information. I’m thinking that the smaller blogs will be willing to release the Whacked List in the interest of generating hits. I’m almost positive that big media won’t release any info either, unless, of course, the monetary value is perceived to be worth it.
So, the question for our readers who have pre-ordered and/or will have the last book on release day: How do you plan to avoid being spoiled over the ending?
I’m thinking it may be fairly difficult if you access HP web sites frequently and are engaged in HP discussions. You know, typical fan type things. I’ll be trying to avoid spoilers as well since the enjoyment will much greater that way. Then I can tease my son: “I know a secret! Mwuahahahaha!” But that’s just me.
