Amazon announced yesterday their financial results for the first quarter of 2005 and stated that they have received 700,000 pre-orders for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
The Company has received 700,000 pre-orders for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, the sixth book in J.K. Rowling's epic Harry Potter series. Amazon.com is offering its U.S. customers guaranteed delivery of the book on the release date, Saturday, July 16, 2005, for the same price as standard shipping, with free delivery for Amazon Prime members.
Pre-orders for Order of the Phoenix within one month of it’s publication had reached 1 million, so there is still time for Half-Blood Prince to reach that milestone.
