If you are one of those who plan on purchasing
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, better get ready for long
lines and sold-out stores. At least, if the Amazon pre-orders are any good
indication of what to expect.
Half-Blood Prince = Increased Pre-Orders
According to the latest stats, pre-orders for Harry
Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be up to 20% higher than the
last Harry Potter release, Order of the Phoenix; holy
increase in popularity. Because of this, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood
Prince is the #1 order at Amazon, with the childrens version of the
book just behind at #2. Judging by these stats, what this can only mean
is long lines at midnight and sold out stores in the morning. So, here is
your tip-- head over to your local Sams Club or Costco on July 16th and
you should have no problem, nor wait, for purchasing Harry Potter and
the Half-Blood Prince.
Considering that each Harry Potter book seems to double in length,
at least this book may take some of us a week to read.
The latest film in the Potter series,
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, will hit theatres in November
of this year.

Potter and the Goblet of Fire Movie Page.
