Pottermania Returns: A "Deathly" Tale

J. K. Rowling's highly anticipated seventh title "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" has started another round of Pottermania. The release announcement came from the official Harry Porter website.

Amazon.com has registered record advance sales of the heavily discounted book expected to be released on July 21. First day sales have shot "Deathly Hallows" past book six's record of being the fastest selling book of all time.

"Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," the sixth book in the boy wizard series, was released in July 2005 and sold 6.9 million copies in its first day on sale at U.S. retailers.

According to Amazon.com, hundreds of thousands of customers had signed up for e-mail notices announcing pre-order availability. Retail sales for the seventh edition are set to hit a magical figure when the book is released.

this would be Rowling's last book of the series.

This time it is believed that two of the major characters in the series would be killed off. Speculations are rife that Harry Potter could be one of them.

How would the huge audience of Potter fans all over the world feel? That would be very, very depressing for a lot of young fans who have come to adore their fantasy hero. However, according to some reports, savvy book retailers are arranging for "counselling" to young fans who might experience "Potter depression."

I hope Harry Potter won't be killed off. Hope he'll live so that the series could still carry on at a later date.
