Read a Book, Go To Jail

From cnn.com, a story about the premature sale of a handful of copies of the new Harry Potter book:

"Fourteen books were accidentally sold last week at a grocery store in Canada, but a judge ordered the customers not to talk about the book, copy it, sell it or even read it before its official release."

Riiiiight.

Try explaining THAT to your eager 10-year-old.  Worse than the whole don't-open-presents-till-Christmas-morning thing.

A few copies were sold earlier this week here in IN, too.  Not to me, unfortunately!
