  • Latest Harry Potter Book Madness?

    From: http://news.independent.co.uk/uk/med...p?story=416518
    The hottest property in publishing just got hotter. Days before the latest Harry Potter book is to go on sale, a raider drove off with a lorry-load of about 8,000 copies of the book in Merseyside.

    Police valued the stolen copies of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix at about £130,000, but experts warned that the thief would have trouble selling them on. Tim Godfray, chief executive of the Booksellers Association said yesterday: "Perhaps he thought it would be an enormous quantity of cigarettes."

    The trailer of books was stolen from a trading estate in Newton-le-Willows on Sunday. The books are to go on sale nationwide on Saturday.
    Police said security staff were duped by the driver's false papers and allowed him to hook a truck he had stolen to the trailer containing 7,680 books. He then drove off.
    Good Grief!!! The things people do to read a book before it even gets out!

    Wow, that is a mess load of books.

    I'm not really interested in the next book, maybe it is because I have yet to read the 4th one..

            You could always wait for the movie... Then you wouldn't have to exercise your brain imagining all the scenes.
