So did you hear?
"Harry Potter" pre-orders break bookseller record.
Barnes & Noble Inc. on Thursday said advance orders for author J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" have topped 500,000 copies, breaking the bookseller chain's record for the most advance requests in its history.
Imagine that. 500,000 copies on advance order before the book hits shelves on July 21st. Yowzers. Think of all the pre-orders before then as well as other booksellers, including the sales of buyers who will pick it up from all this buzz alone.
Because there are readers--like myself!--who haven't read the Harry Potter series. One of these days I will. I have watched the movies. haha!
Let me know if you're a faithful Harry Potter fan. :) :)
