It seems HARRY POTTER fans will have to satisfy themselves with the paperback release of THE GOBLET OF FIRE rather than a new POTTER novel this summer.
Scholastic Publishers, the American publishing house of J.K. Rowling, will put out a paperback version of Book Four in the series, the aforementioned HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE, July 31, the birthday of one boy named Potter. Unfortunately, that will only whet the appetites of readers for a book that is nowhere in site.
"There is no release date as yet for Book Five," a spokesperson for Rowling's London publisher told ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY. That's what they said last year.
