J. K. Rowling, "Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows"
Arthur A. Levine Books | ISBN 0545010225 | Year 2007 | 750 + Photographed pages(!) | PDF | 74 MB
first ten chapters, typed: only 420 KB
The long-awaited seventh (and final book) of the Harry Potter series. Given that the proud owner has actually lovingly photographed it page by page, we can safely conclude that it's definitely the real thing (unless it's a *very* elaborate hoax... the kind it would take entire governments to pull off, *cough* 9-11 *cough*). Anyway, the dunderhead who created this "release" had obviously never heard of a scanner... or at least couldn't be bothered. Still, it's pretty readable (zoomed in at ~200% on Adobe Acrobat Reader). Of course, in a few days the book will be officially released and someone will upload a proper copy; you could wait that long... couldn't you? Your choice.
Update: Someone has taken the trouble to type (that's what I assume they've done) the first ten chapters of the book. I can't vouch for the accuracy, but from a cursory glance it looks like a very good effort... no glaring spelling mistakes or anything like that. And it's only about 420 KB in size.
If I find a more complete version than this, I'll try to upload it.
Regarding the original post, I think I made it abundantly clear from the screenshot what the book looks like. If you have a problem with it, take your business elsewhere. Like I said, someone will probably upload a full version as soon as the book is properly released (if not sooner).
