Our very own Jerry Cooke was on hand for both the live MuggleCast podcast at Waterstones and JK Rowling's midnight release party. From his report, we've learned exactly what went on in Jo's media-less event:
As I continued round, surrounded by velvet drape and atmospheric lighting, I came across the next section of registration, where I received my goody-bag, which contained lots of little things like a commemorative poster, some balloons, a smoothy and some stickers. Most importantly though, the bag contained the second immaculate first edition copy of Deathly Hallows of the night, but this time with a holographic authenticity sticker on the same page as would later me signed.
