With just two days left to go before the seventh and final Harry Potter book hits bookstores worldwide, author JK Rowling has sent out an impassioned plea to fans.

Rowling, in a message posted on her official website www.jkrowling.com, asks fans to ignore all those rumours floating about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows being leaked on the internet.

“As launch night looms, let’s all please ignore the misinformation popping up on the web and in the press on the plot of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” she says in her message.

She also asks fans who get their hands on the book when it releases, to keep mum about the plot.

“I’d like to ask everyone who calls themselves a Potter fan to help preserve the secrecy of the plot for all those who are looking forward to reading the book at the same time on publication day,” she writes.

“In a very short time you will know everything,” she adds.

The final Potter books goes on sale at one minute past midnight on July 21.

Pottermania in the meanwhile has reached such heights that online retailer Amazon reported that a staggering 2 million people worldwide had already pre-ordered the final book and that it was expecting more orders to come trooping in as D-Day draws closer.
