"Harry Potter VII" gets a Publishing Date

By Karl Schneider     February 02, 2007

The seventh and final book in the remarkably popular series by J.K. Rowling, titled Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, will be published on July 21, 2007.

The publishing date comes just 8 days after the theatrical release of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

The sixth book in the series sold over 6.9 million copies in the first 24 hours alone.  All Harry Potter novels have been number one bestsellers.

Scholastic will publish Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in hardcover under the Arthur A. Levine imprint, with interior and cover art by Mary GrandPre, who has illustrated the previous six books. A deluxe edition and reinforced library edition will be published simultaneously.


KJ's Take:  Oh man.  July is going to be Harry Potter mania.  This can only help the box office for the film.

Dangit! I'll have to see this movie on some crappy bootleg video from Ukraine on my laptop. I wonder if I beg and pray they'll bump this stuff up to early June...

I have mixed feelings about this. Although I can't wait to read this book, I really don't want it to end. My wife and I have already ordered two copies so we can read it at the same time, otherwise she would go and find out all the twists and deaths online like she had for the previous books. She can never wait for a good surprise. I look forward to reading the conclusion to this great series and reading them all over again to my son once he's old enough. And at least we have two more movies to anticipate. Can't wait.

ddiaz, I think our wives were separated at birth. Either that, or my wife is a secret polygamist and she's really the same person as your wife. Eee...

In case people haven't seen it yet, you can pre-order the book on Amazon.com now for less than $19 (A big savings over the $35 list price). I did this for the last two books and got them on or before the release date. Just a heads up for those that are interested.

So that's the date Harry Potter will die on, good to know.

I already ordered my copy. Now all I have to do is sit at home when it is delivered to me without having to go through the long lines and waiting there will be that day.

At the risk of sounding like a total Nerdlinger -- This release date pisses me off. July 21st?!?! What is that bullshit? Dictated, probably, by Warner Brothers releasing "Order" one week earlier. It's bullshit, I tell you! Bullshit! There are two release dates within weeks of July 21st that would have had significance and symbolism. One would be July 7th -- the date would read 7-07-07, or 7-7-7 -- since 7 is such an important number in the Harry Potter series. OR They could have released it on July 31st, which is Harry's birthday. Considering it is the last book, I think they missed out big time on the release date. Like two weeks would make that big of a fucking difference.

Okay jamesdalton, its just a book. And I think most fans like myself are just happy that a release date has been announced, period. As for the availability of the book, I will just go to some obscured Walmart the morning its released. I went to Walmart the morning of HBP release and a whole mountain of them were available. No lines and I was in and out in 2 minutes.

There is WAY too much of a big deal about the long lines and crowds. It's a book, they print off a lot of them. The only lines and crowds are from those that want the book INSANTLY. Which I'll pass on. I'd rather get a good nights rest and read it the next day or whenever. But the Amazon.com deal is quite excellent.
