‘WHAT will you be reading on the beach next year?

A Harry Potter fan

A copy of the Star and tearing yourself away from looking at real babes on the beach to looking at pictures of babes on the beach in front-page splashes like today’s “Page 3 on holiday”?

A copy of Harry Potter And The Adult Literacy Class, pre-wrapped for all over-18s in a brown paper cover to avoid anyone assuming that you are a) a Satanist, b) a paedophile researching material to use on children in the nearest amusement arcade, or c) a trendy parent trying to be your kid’s best mate.

Or what about Guilty As Sin, Free As A Bird, juror Eleanor Cook’s story of her time on the Michael Jackson trial?

Or The Deliberator, Ray Hultman’s version of events inside the Santa Monica courthouse where Jackson stood accused of molesting one Gavin Arvizo, before being cleared on all counts?

But if reading is not your thing, the Mail’s other news is that a film of Miss Cook’s book is already in the pipeline.

And that could be good news for Jackson. The paper says he’s “financially ruined” and he’d surely relish the chance to earn a few bob playing himself in any film of his trial.

Unless the film’s producers offer the part to Elizabeth Taylor, Bubbles, Gary Glitter…’
