Harry Potter wait almost over



LIKE hundreds of other Gladstone Harry Potter enthusiasts, Gene Cleary is excitedly counting down until Saturday.

Harry Potter and the HalfBlood Prince will be released on Saturday and already 500 copies have been ordered by enthusiasts at Dymocks Bookstore Glad-stone.

Ten-year-old Gene, who has loved Harry Potter books since he could read in year 1, was excited about the sixth book in the series.

'I loved all the books and the movies and cannot wait to read it,' he said.

The Observer would like to let our readers know what the new Harry Potter book is like.

If you are buying the Harry Potter book this Saturday, think you will finish reading it by Sunday afternoon and are happy to talk about it, phone Sam Benger before Friday on 4970 3032 or email samb@gladstoneobserver.com.au.
