Pirates in Italy will soon be out of a job. Book pirates, that is - in particular those pirating Italian versions of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
The Italian translation of "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix", the latest of the series created by Joanne Kathleen Rowlings, will hit the bookshelves in the bookstores on October 31: according to Finanza e Mercati on Thursday publishing house Salani will start to distribute the booking forms for the most popular literary phenomena in the history of publishing. It is the fifth book of the saga, which, in Italy alone, sold 3.5 million copies.
