The Seventh Harry Potter Title

Fuse #8 reports on the availability of the title of the seventh Harry Potter book on J.K. Rowling's website. Title aside, I like the publisher's use of the site as a promotional vehicle. It takes several mysterious steps to get to the underwhelming title, and there are other goodies on the site as well. My favorite is the "Rubbish" section, accessible from the main desktop by clicking on the pencil sharpener; the trash can contains responses to critics of the Harry Potter books and debunkings of various myths surrouding the series or its author.

I'm guessing a lot of kids will be pretty jazzed at having the opportunity to find out the title through mysterious means, so I won't give it away here. But Fuse #8 can tell you the steps to take to find it.
