Harry Potter Attack!

Just imagine a book making headlines of every national dailies! Yes! Harry Potter sore to the top spot on the 'best-selling charts' even before its release (The new Harry Potter book has sold 6.9 million copies in the US in its first 24 hours). The Harry Potter's magical world and magical charm continues.

A total novice on this phenomena, I was attacked by "Harry Potter" after seeing the movie Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban along with my young cousins. There's nothing quite like magic.
Do you know your Hedwigs from your Hogwarts, the Malfoys from the Weasleys and a Hufflepuff from a Slytherin? No? Check out BBC News Online's essential guide to bluffing your way around the magical world of author JK Rowling.

Author JK Rowling appeared at Edinburgh Castle on Friday to mark the launch of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the sixth book in the hugely popular series. I think it was a clever move to push the sales by 'pre-ordering' books to avoid the piracy market, which would hit once the book is released. For bookstores, Harry Potter books are 'cakewalk' sales. There is so much hype and excitement about the book that they really don't need to launch events. The children will turn up to buy the book anyway

Harry Potter and Half-blood Prince, is also be available in Brailey form and large prints for visually impaired Harry fans. Really Amazing! Hats off to
The Royal National Institute of the Blind who ensured that the Braille copies of the novel were out on 16 July.
