whining about a children's book

I had the best intentions of waiting for my recycled paper British spellings edition with an "adult cover" of Harry Potter to arrive from before I started reading, but now that I hear rumors and spoilers are running rampant on the internet and embargo-breaking book reviews are flooding newspapers (the NYT! et tu, Kakutani?) I suspect that I will be unable to wait and might have to just buy a local copy to start reading it over the weekend.

Thoughts of dragging out the experience also are seeming more and more naive, unless I'm willing to just turn off the internet for a week.
