Final "Potter" Book Hits Stores July 21



"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" has been announced to come out on July 21 this year.

What kind of ending Harry Potter is facing is to be revealed this year for sure. Author J.K. Rowling has announced on her site that the last chapter of the boy wizard's adventure "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" will be published on July 21, 2007, confirmed shortly thereafter by her British publisher, Bloomsbury, and U.S. publisher, Scholastic Inc.

The seven installment of the mega-selling series, the book will come out at midnight with a suggested cover price of $34.99, $5 more than the previous one "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince." Amazon.com, however, has stated that it will sell the book for only $18.89, a 46 percent discount.

The print run and number of pages have yet to be revealed, but it has been already known that, as Rowling once said, at least two characters will be killed off in the book. Prior to the release, the big screen adaptation of book five, "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix", is set to open in theaters on July 13 under Warner Bros. Pictures banner.

Rowling first introduced the fantasy series ten years ago upon reaching deals with Bloomsbury after being rejected by twelve publishing houses. So far, the books published have sold more than 325 million copies in 64 languages with "Half-Blood Prince" being the fastest selling book ever according to The Guinness World Records.
