Yes, it’s Bloomsbury’s site, so it *is* official.

Sections from the book on the Bloomsbury site include:

“The hottest day of the summer so far was drawing to a close and a drowsy silence lay over the large, square houses of Privet Drive … The only person left outside was a teenage boy who was lying flat on his back in a flowerbed outside number four.”

“Dumbledore lowered his hands and surveyed Harry through his half-moon glasses.

‘It is time,’ he said, ‘for me to tell you what I should have told you five years ago, Harry.

Please sit down. I am going to tell you everything.'”

Now, for one of those rare personal comments: My inner Trelawney knew this information was going to be released on my birthday!
