The two year wait for J.K. Rowling's sixth Harry Potter novel is almost over.
"Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince," will go on sale July 16 at 12:01am. Millions of Harry Potter fans have been waiting to dress up, line up and stay up to nab the latest Harry Potter installment.
Five hundred copies are sitting in boxes in the store room at United Market Street. Only about 30 of them have been pre-ordered. Other stores around town say, they have enough books to cover pre-orders, as well as some extras, but the books are expected to go fast.
Insiders say, there is a major cliffhanger in this novel, to lead up to Rowling's as-yet-untitled final story. You can't start reading until midnight but the party starts a little earlier. The fun gets underway at 10 pm at Market Street with costume contests and give-aways. All Hastings locations start release parties at 9:30pm. Walden Books in the mall and Barnes and Noble start their midnight magic parties at 9pm.
