Extremely perceptive reader Potterfan has notified us that the “Welcome” note on JKRowling.com‘s front page has changed slightly in the past day from this:

This is where I can tell you the truth about rumours or news stories, where I can share the extra information I haven’t put in the books, where I can give you hints and clues about what’s going to happen to Harry next, and where I can announce I’ve finished book six… and no, that’s not going to happen very soon.

To this:

This is where I can tell you the truth about rumours or news stories, where I can share the extra information I haven’t put in the books, where I can give you hints and clues about what’s going to happen to Harry next, and where I can announce I’ve finished book seven… and no, that’s not going to happen very soon.

(Bold and italics TLC’s. Thanks to Google’s cache for showing us the old page, taken Dec. 13; also, our reader “El Cronista de Salem” says yesterday it still said “book six.” The change was just made. As if HP fans would have let that go under the radar!)
Well, get as excited as you want, guys…there it is, right from the source, it is no longer accurate to say finishing book six is “not going to happen very soon.” We don’t know if it means the book IS done or just CLOSE to done, if it means we’ll get a release date or just a notification that she’s done…but there’s no doubt the change was made (here’s a screencap). One more time: We have NO IDEA what this means other than the change was made. Theorize away. (It certainly lends credence to the theory that something big is coming to JKR.com on Christmas day.)
