The Herald has published an article in which an anonymous bookseller speaks out against the scale of the Harry Potter marketing campaign. Quote: “I like being part of kids’ reading and learning, and JK Rowling has created fiction that has undoubtedly helped children to read more, but I feel I’m part of something bigger and slightly more sinister than just a book, and I don’t feel very magical about it.”
