A flurry of Harry Potter'ing

New info on HBP Deluxe Edition
A representative at Scholastic has informed us that the Half-Blood Prince Deluxe Edition will contain "a 32 page insert with the black and white art from the interior blown up to full page size." From this information we can infer that the book will likely consist of 31 or 32 chapters.

Update: HBP confirmed at 672 pagesAfter checking with our sources, we can now confirm that the 672 page count was given to both and Barnes & Noble by the US publisher Scholastic.We've also been in contact with Bloomsbury, but they're unable to provide us with a number of pages for the UK edition at this time. It is typically less because they use a different font. EDITOR'S NOTE: BETTER THAN FEWER THAN 672, BUT NOT NEARLY AS GROOVY AS 900. AH WELL. WE WILL READ IT SLOWLY AND SAVOR.....
