J.K. Rowling Reveals Title of Final Harry Potter Book

Dec. 21 (Bloomberg) -- The final book in the Harry Potter series about a young wizard's adventures at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry will be titled ``Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,'' author J.K. Rowling announced today.

The title of the seventh book in the series was revealed through a puzzle on the British writer's Web site, where visitors have to click on items to reveal a chamber and then guess the name of the book from the clues given.

``The book's release will be met with an unprecedented level of excitement,'' Kes Nielsen, the head of book buying at online retailer Inc., said in an e-mailed statement. ``Over the past 10 years, so many people have been enchanted by the world and characters that J.K. Rowling created.''
