Folks lined up for the newest Harry Potter book to go on sale hours before its release.

The books are wrapped up and watched very closely. They officially go on sale at midnight Friday July 20. This means the folks have quite a while before they can get their hands on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

This is the 7th and final Harry Potter book. Of course at the end, we learn Harry's fate.

It's been ten years since the first one hit store shelves. It's expected to break records as the fastest-selling book in all of history.

Already author JK Rowling has sold more than 325 million copies of her books and when you add in all of the movie sales and merchandise, it's a $3 billion industry.

There is a magician on hand, face painting, and lots of fun for the family, but the focus here is on the stack of books that will go on sale at midnight.

It's a secret that's been closely guarded, but pirated pages have made it onto the internet, but for most folks here they're anxiously anticipating midnight when they can get the book in their own hands.
