Half-Blood Prince Books Sold Early In IndianapolisHarry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
The Ap is reporting this morning that two men in Indianapolis bought copies of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince already.
Tim Meyer, 33, and Andrew Rauscher, 25, told The Indianapolis Star they purchased the books at a downtown store on Monday. They declined to provide the store's name because they are frequent customers.
"I thought I was seeing things," said Meyer. "I asked the lady, 'Can I buy this now?' and she was like 'Yeah' and just rang it up."
A Scholastic spokesperson said "We obviously take the security of this book very seriously and investigate any reported breaches of the on-sale date and would take any action that would be appropriate."
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be released on July 16th.
