USA Today Talks HBP Paperback, Book Seven
Jul 24, 2006
USA Today has a new article about the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in paperback, which comes out tomorrow. In addition to the anticipation by booksellers of brisk sales of the book (“It is going to be crazy,” says one seller), the paper also mentions the Scholastic sponsored “Harry Potter Book Experts Tour.” This tour features our own Melissa Anelli, along with Emerson from MuggleNet and Scholastic/Arthur A Levine Book editor Cheryl Klein, who are taping podcasts at their stops; the first of the podcasts will be available on Wednesday on the Scholastic website via this link. Their next podcast will be Tuesday at the Barnes & Noble in Summerlin, not far from the site of Lumos.
At the end of the article there is a new quote from Bloomsbury about the status on Book Seven. Quotage:
“Here’s the cryptic word from UK publisher Bloomsbury: “We won’t know when we are publishing the seventh book until the manuscript is delivered,” Lucy Holden says.”
