This morning Likely Stories, BookList's blog, has linked to their online review of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows. No specifics are in place regarding it's publication date for the journal, but the reviewer has given the book a starred review.
Publisher's Weekly has an interesting blurb, That 8.3 Million Copies Sold Was Just the Beginning, detailing specifics concerning the books sold in the first 24 hours. There seems to have been a few problems with a print run and copies missing pages:
"There were also a few reports from booksellers of some misprinted copies, with pages missing toward the end, or duplicate copies of the same pages. 'It adds to the excitement of Harry Potter,' said Alan Fowler, co-owner of Village Square Booksellers in Bellows Falls, Vt., philosophizing about the missing signature (pages 643-674) at the end of at least 26 of the store's copies. The mix-up was first uncovered early Saturday morning when a high school student who helped the store with its Potter party was just finishing the book. Because the printing error is so deep into the book, Fowler said, he's expecting to hear from more customers early this week." (PW, Roback and Milliot, 7/23/07)
I'm finding a number of people who read the epilogue before reading the book so they would know who lived. A known end-of-book reader, after finishing the book I was glad I had refrained from that particular act.
