Saturday 21st July. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. £17.99!!!
Already on sale at Amazon for £9.99.
The one sure-fire, cash-cow, golden-goosed money tree for all of us and those lousy bastards at Tescos and Asda are going to ruin it for everybody because they want to put the REST OF THE WORLD out of business so they can finally be proved the WINNERS.
HP7 could keep us booksellers going all year. The only winners are Bloomsbury who inflate the cover price to accommodate the discounts and Rowling and the punters, of course.
But they could sensibly price it at 12.99 and nobody loses. That's a good price for the punters, us, everybody. Nobody suffers, everybody wins. Is that TOO MUCH TO ASK or am I just a hopeless old communist throwback.
