  Seven million Potter books to be printed
Updated 15 February 2003, 17.21

Almost seven million copies of the new Harry Potter book will be printed in the US so the shops don't run out.

US publishers Scholastic said it's planning to print 6.8 million copies of Order of the Phoenix.

That means it shouldn't disappear off the shelves too quickly when it appears in June.

Sell-out

Goblet of fire flew out of the shops
That's one of the biggest first print runs ever in the US.

It's not surprising; JK Rowling's last book, Goblet of Fire, became the fastest-selling book in US history, selling 3 million copies in two days.

Scholastic had to print another three million straight away.

To make sure they don't get caught out, they're using several different printing plants.
