I’m afraid the Harry Potter thing has largely passed me by, but Amazon is already taking orders for Harry Potter 6: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, with a hefty discount (41 per cent at time of writing) helping to take it the top of the chart. So I’m obviously missing something.
But beware of rushing over to Amazon to join the queue. There are some who think these books evil enough to be banned! But given that Amazon don’t charge you until the book’s dispatched, I guess there’s no harm in placing an order now, if you must.
