Either The Numbers Are Lying, Or Someone Out There Is Reading

At some point, someone will need to reconcile the fact that kids today don’t read with the fact that Harry Potter orders are skyrocketing. But we’ll leave that task to those who understand bell curves and whatnot. We want to focus on the positive for the moment.

At this rate, pre-orders should top the 1.3 million pre-orders received for the previous Harry Potter book in 2003.

After that, there’s not much in the way of news. Oh, the huge discount issue is going to raise its ugly head again. And it will be interesting to see if people are throwing just Harry into their shopping carts (virtual or not) or if other books will benefit. After all, if you’re not an Amazon Prime member, you still want to hit $25 to get your free shipping.
