As readers will recall on Tuesday, July 7th, Scholastic, the US publishers of the Harry Potter series, will at long last release a paperback edition of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. As part of the event, the main Scholastic Store in Soho, New York City will be the site of a release party. Starting at 10:00 am there will be Harry Potter trivia, potions and wand making events, plus fans can enter raffles for the trunk boxset of the Hardcover editions of the series, or a Harry Potter print signed by artist Mary Grandpre. In addition, with every purchase of the DH paperback, you will get a free poster. Enjoy!

It is strange that the Hallows is only now coming out in paperback. I think the first two books wwere out in paperback right away.

prettygypsy, it all has to do with money. The hardbacks are more expensive and they make more money on them, so they are released first. Then about a year later the paperbacks are released. Hardbacks always come out first.

Why does the paperback have to come out so much later than the hardback. Youd think the hardback would be out last but its not. I wish i could go to that party. Local bookstores near you may host a party you should check to see. Or you could suggest they have a party. I hope JKR hurries up and finishes that encyclopedia I cant wait to read it.

OOOooh. I’d looooooove to win that Box Set.

and KiwiMcl, it always does. I’ve never understood why, but it always takes longer to release a paperback.
