      Good Post! Harry Potter books are very famous all over the world and its a good approach to increase reading interest in children.

      The Harry Potter book launches took a similar approach to what has been done for years in the movies industry. Show previews in the preceding weeks in many theaters, build-up momentum and get the word out. If authors had the adequate audience they could duplicate that approach and the book industry would be a fashionable trend in the Youth. Michel Jackson was one of the first singers to use it in the music industry with the release of the clip on "thriller" in the early 80's.
