Just Announced: The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling
The creator of Harry Potter is back with her first novel for adults, The Casual Vacancy. When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly, the empty seat he leaves on the town’s council becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the seemingly idyllic town of Pagford has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity, and unexpected revelations?
Blackly comic and constantly surprising, The Casual Vacancy arrives September 27, 2012, but you can pre-order your copy of the Kindle book now.

If you live in the U.S. and want the U.K. editions of the Harry Potter eBooks, Our Mirror of Erised has a post describing how to obtain them. Look for the post I made on 29 March 2012.
The Pottermore Store is now open, selling English-language copies of the Harry Potter books. Other languages will be coming soon.
The good news: the books are pretty reasonably priced ($7.99 for the first one).
The bad news: if you live in the U.S., you can’t buy the original version but are forced to buy the U.S. language version.
For a lot of people, maybe most, that won’t matter, but I read them originally in British English, the original, and I don’t want them in U.S. English. So my excitement about having them available, following many months of anticipation, was quickly turned to major disappointment. Since JKR owns the digital rights to her books, I don’t understand why she would keep people from buying them in the original just because they live in the U.S. It’s not like where different companies in different countries have the rights to them. Anyway, after this long wait, sadly I will not be buying the books in e-book format.
