Nothing is a secret for very long in the world of entertainment these days. We practically knew Kate Walsh was signed up for a Grey’s Anatomy spinoff before she did.

With this in mind, J.K. Rowling is pleading with fans of her world-renowned series: Don’t give away any Harry Potter spoilers.

The final chapter in the journey of this young magician is set to hit stores on July 21 when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is released. More people may actually read it that day than visit The Hollywood Gossip. But we understand.

As the date approaches – and celebrity gossip sites learn tidbits about the tome – Rowling is afraid this information will ruin the story for readers.

“We’re a little under three months away, now, and the first distant rumblings of the weirdness that usually precedes a Harry Potter publication can be heard on the horizon,” Rowling wrote on her website on Monday.

“I want the readers who have, in many instances, grown up with Harry, to embark on the last adventure they will share with him without knowing where they are they going.”

It’s an understandable concern. The number of online searches for the phrase “Harry Potter Book 7 Spoilers” has been climbing across various search engines for weeks now. It’s almost as popular a topic as Tricia Helfer nude pics.

But perhaps Rowling should focus on another issue:

Daniel Radcliffe appears to have moved on from the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to breast-staring 101. The author may wish to do something about that.
