Harry Potter Fans Receive The Latest Book Saturday At Midnight

So how does it end? True Harry Potter fans probably already know and NewsChannel 11 is not going to be the one to spoil the secret.

The seventh and final book in the Potter series went on sale Saturday at midnight.

Here in Lubbock, release parties were held across town at Barnes and Noble, Hastings and South Plains Mall.

Fans dressed up as their favorite character and played games, but the main topic of conversation was about the fate of Harry Potter.

"Well, we want Harry to die. We think it's a good ending," one fan said.

"I don't know, I just hope that Harry doesn't die," another fan said.

Fans have more than 780 pages to read to find that out.
