    Default The final Harry Potter book release date revealed

    LONDON

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," the last of seven installments of the boy wizard's adventures, will be published July 21, author J.K. Rowling said Thursday.

    Rowling announced the publication date on her Web site.
    Bloomsbury, her British publisher, said it would publish a children's hardback edition, an adult hardback, a special gift edition and an audio book on the same day.

    Scholastic Children's Books, the U.S. publisher, said it would offer a hardback edition at a suggested retail price of $34.99, a deluxe edition at $65.00 and a reinforced library edition at $39.99.
    Bloomsbury noted that this year is the 10th anniversary of the publication of the first "Harry Potter" book in the phenomenally successful series.

    The "Potter" books have sold 325 million copies worldwide and been translated into 64 languages, Bloomsbury said.

    The last book, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," sold 2,009,574 copies in Britain on the first day of its release, Bloomsbury said.

    The Potter franchise is so important to the company's earnings that it announced the publication to the London Stock Exchange.
    Bloomsbury shares were up 2.2 percent to $4.40 after the announcement

    Excited and a bit sad that it's coming to an end.

    I'm still shocked that Dumbledore is dead.

    The other sources I've read said it would be published "by July 21st" which means the 7th book could still come on 7/7/07. Yes, I am a nerd for hoping this is so.

    I know - I'm super pissed at Snape about this and that little bastard Malfoy too! I hope Harry throws one of those deadly curses on both their asses.

    Excited the book is coming out but so sad that it's ending. I keep hoping that Rowling will change her mind and write further books once he becomes a professor at Hogwarts

    such a fucking harry potter nerd....

    ^^ I think DD had to die. That's the only way for Harry to face Voldemort truly on his own, which is something I think he must do. Does this mean you think Snape is a good guy who followed through on a plan? Or do you think Snape is a deatheater to the end?

    Damn, I think I've read every book 5-6 times. Talk about nerds!

    Ooh I can't wait, although secretly in my heart of hearts i had hoped that it would be maybe next year or so...it seems it's coming so quickly, and I don't want it to end. I've started my big re-read of all the books in the run up to it... so excited though!

    I think Snape is a secret good guy, but I still hate his greasy black guts.
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on

    Do a wikki on this, if you want to be dissappointed. After you filter through the crap, the answer is clear......Poor Malfoy *jokes*

    I think he'll be back and I don't think that Snape is really bad either. At least I'm hoping so!

    I disagree, JKR is so amazing with curveballs that wikki, or anything, cannot predict what's gonna happen

    Sorry I was obtuse, I just enjoyed the curveballs and rumors that were listed as we all count down to the inevitable mania this book will bring. There are some interesting little tid bits and suppositions. Munchies for the Potterheads, if you will
