Harry Potter Embargo Broken! Review Appears in the New York Times

Booksellers all had to sign several documents by a deadline promising not to sell (or even open the boxes of) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows before July 21, 2007. So imagine the furor that has been sparked by an early review posted by Michiko Kakutani on the New York Times Website. As reported by Reuters, she says the book was bought in an undisclosed store in New York City on Wednesday, July 18th. J.K. Rowling is sorely disappointed.
