Harry Potter casts spell on the Port City

The boy wizard is back, 8.5 million copies of him. Just after midnight, fantasy became reality for Harry Potter fans as bookstores rang up the first official sales of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. At Barnes and Noble in Wilmington, snagging one of the first copies required a little more than magic. Adults and children lined up four hours in advance to het their hands on the book. The store even handed out numbers, using tickets as crowd control. Both Barnes and Noble and Books a Million are sold out of the book, unless you reserved one in advance. Target and Wal-Mart Supercenter tell us they both have copies in stock.
