Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has topped Amazon's book chart
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has topped Amazon's book chart less than 24 hours after its release date - 16 July - was announced. Thousands of customers placed pre-orders on the amazon.co.uk website for the sixth book in the series. Rowling revealed she had completed the novel on Tuesday, ahead of the scheduled announcement on 25 December. It will be published simultaneously in the UK, the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, says BBC News. Rowling had been due to announce the release date for the latest novel on Christmas Day, but said she had issued it early because her fans "have better things to do" on the day than check her website. As in the Order of the Phoenix, Rowling will kill off one of the characters in the next episode but has not revealed any details on who it might be. She has also refused to disclose who the Half-Blood Prince is, although she has denied that it is either Harry or his nemesis Lord Voldemort, reports the Telegraph. There's also the "Unofficial Half-Blood Prince Update," a regularly updated e-book available from Amazon for $11.94, which serves as a one-stop guide to all the real information, fan speculation and mysteries surrounding the identity of the mysterious half-royal in the book's title. For those less manic, a quick trip through Rowling's own site has a few nuggets, such as information on characters expunged from previous books and efforts to dispel rumors that serve as tantalizing new hints on their own. "This is where I can tell you the truth about rumors or news stories, where I can share the extra information I haven't put in the books, where I can give you hints and clues about what's going to happen to Harry next, and where I can announce I've finished book seven," Rowling writes in her welcome. "And no, that's not going to happen very soon", informs the CNET News.
