::Harry Potter Book Draws Huge Crowd

From Raleigh Chonicle Staff Reports
Saturday, July 21, 2007
 
DURHAM - Even Professor Dumbledore couldn't conjure up this many people if he tried --- literally thousands of fans young and old flocked to Triangle area book stores on Friday night to buy the latest Harry Potter book from author J.K. Rowling that was just released at midnight.

At the locally owned Regulator Bookshop on Ninth Street in downtown Durham, a line of several hundred people formed at the store before midnight and even at 2am, people were still showing up to buy Harry Potter and the Deadly Hallows.

Young kids and adults alike stood in line to buy the book.  Some had staked out their spot early on the sidewalk and they even brought their own chairs to be able to relax while they waited for the midnight sale to begin.

The event was marked by a lot of fun and excitement, as many of those in attendance dressed up as their favorite character from previous Harry Potter books.  Several had made their own costumes and relished the event.  One woman commented that there aren't many occasions where she got to wear her unique hat.

Several parents who were Harry Potter fans also brought their kids who are fans as well.  One couple was seen with three Harry Potter lookalikes at the bookstore and many kids were eager to get their hands on the book.

Many of those waiting in began to read the book while they waited and some were already discussing details of the book before they even left the store.

Even if you weren't a fan of Harry Potter, it was evident that there was something magic in the air as people were drawn to reading.  In this era of video and computers, it was rewarding to see a book cast such a spell over all of the excited readers, both young and old.  ::
