Amazon.co.uk Book Six Notification Glitch
Feb 17, 2005
A while ago Amazon.com had a glitch in which users subscribed to be notified when HBPwent on sale got an email suggesting the book would be very delayed; the company later apologized in a very funny and Potteresque way.
It seems the same happened with Amazon.co.uk today – readers have been getting the exact same email, suggesting that HBP will not come out in the forseeable future.
Luckily, we all know better. Wild horses couldn’t stop that book from coming out, as planned, on July 16. We are sure it’s just a glitch, so don’t worry, and we’ll update you when we get anything official.
Update: The same apology letter as last time has been sent out, and the matter settled.
