The USA Today has a new article as part of their Summer 2007 books preview, discussing what they say is the book of the summer, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. According to the article, at book retailers Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble and Borders, the last book in the Harry Potter series is "the largest pre-ordered book in history."

"The weekend the book goes on sale, it will gross more than any Hollywood movie, and I think that's great news," says Steve Riggio, Barnes & Noble CEO. "Harry Potter brings forth the idea that reading a book is perhaps the greatest form of entertainment of all."

The article also briefly mentions that many bookstores are planning elaborate release parties for the midnight release of Deathly Hallows on July 21. If you are looking to attend such a party, be sure to check out PotterParties.com for all your wizarding party needs.
