LATEST HARRY POTTER BOOK WELL RECEIVED BY EAGER FANS
Around 600,000 copies of JK’s Rowling’s latest Harry Potter book, "Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows" were delivered to British homes on Saturday, all pre-ordered by readers eager to discover the fate of their favourite boy wizard. Royal Mail organised the deliveries with military precision, using 180 extra trucks and an additional train service to distribute the books from retailers’ warehouses to delivery offices across the country.
Meanwhile Harry Potter author, JK Rowling has written to retailers worldwide urging every bookshop selling the new Harry Potter book to display posters of missing British tot Madeleine McCann. The little girl’s father, Gerry McCann described the news as “fantastic”. It’s certainly a great way to keep the little girl in the public eye. Initially JK Rowling had suggested inserting bookmarks bearing Maddy’s photo into every copy of the new book. However this idea was dropped in favour of the posters as JK Rowling believed herself and book retailers had a responsibility to younger readers, to protect them from exposure to certain issues without their parents’ consent.
