Deathly Hallows

It's official! The final installment of the Harry Potter series now has a title:
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

The BBC reports:

Author JK Rowling has revealed the title of the seventh and final Harry Potter book.
It will be called Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The announcement was made on the writer's official website.
Despite the publication date not being known, the book is tipped to be a big seller, like the rest in the series.

This week Rowling revealed how she has gone back to writing in cafes - as she did 13 years ago when starting to write about the boy wizard.
She has also admitted how she has been dreaming of the character.
Writing on her website she described it as an "epic dream" where she was Harry and the narrator simultaneously.

In a recent web posting, she said she has been working hard on the last book.
"I'm now writing scenes that have been planned, in some cases, for a dozen years or even more," she said.
She also described feeling "alternately elated and overwrought" at writing it and joked she cannot decide if she wants to finish it or not.
