  Shops see Order-ing of the Phoenix frenzy
Updated 16 January 2003, 15.06

The Phoenix-frenzy has already started.

It's only 24 hours since the news that Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix will be released on 21 June.

But online bookseller Amazon has told CBBC Newsround's website they've already had pre-orders for 30,000 copies.

The kid's version has shot to the top of their best-seller list, while the adult version is just behind.

Meanwhile, other bookshops told us their phones are red-hot with pre-orders and plenty of people are popping in stores to make sure they don't miss out in June.

Borders started taking orders the day the release was announced.

In-store events

And Waterstone's have been letting fans order since last July.

We also found out Waterstone's are going to have special activities and "massive in-store events" on 21 June.

Keep checking back here for info on how Book 5 is selling and where some special events might happen on 21 June!
