HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX
, the fifth book in author J.K. Rowling's wildly popular childrens fantasy book series, is now on sale in bookstores. The book went on sale in the United Kingdom last evening at precisely 7:01 PM; if you live inside North America, you were able to purchase your copy at 12:01 AM local time. From all accounts the novel is flying off of store shelves, with some bookstores reporting their initial orders of THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX
have already sold out.
Many bookstores held special Harry Potter-themed events for youngsters last night, with cashiers and customers alike dressing up as their favorite Hogwart's characters. For people who ordered the 870-page tome online, postal carriers are making special trips today to deliver all their books to their anxious owners.
While it's been three years since Rowling's last book, HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE
, was released but judging from advance and first day sales, Harry Potter mania has only intensified.Got a scoop? Know something that you need to tell us about? Send it to us!
