Cursed Child Sales Top Two Million - PW (Publishers' Weekly)

On Panzer's trip into the Catosphere today he spent his time looking for news about J.K. Rowlings' new book, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Our traveling kitty told you about the country-wide bookstore parties for the book's launch and wanted any followup news he could find. Panzer found some good news and some bad news in his hunting.

In a post by Jim Milliot at the Publishers' Weekly site, our kitty reporter discovered the good news that the script for the stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child turned book of the same name had enormous sales. Over the two days after the launch night the book sold two million copies in the U.S. alone. The book hit #1 on Amazon. The post includes links to reviews of the book.

It makes me very sad.
Panzer discovered the bad news in a post by Maryann Yin at GalleyCat titled J. K. Rowing Declares Cursed Child to be the Final Harry Potter Story. According to Ms. Rowling, Harry Potter is being supplanted by a new generation and so there will be no more books about him . The post includes a link to the original interview.

Note: The two posts are medium length when combined. Bring a thermos of tea and six muffins for today's reading selections.
