An employee looks at a copy of the "The Casual Vacancy" by author J.K. Rowling at a book store in London, Thursday, Sept. 27, 2012. British bookshops are opening their doors early as Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling launches her long anticipated first book for adults.
I work in a bookstore and was surprised how little promotion there was for this book. We took pre orders, but not very many people did. There were plenty of copies for people who just walked in and wanted one today. I guess after the HP7 midnight release (which I worked, it was the funnest night of work ever and I got to be Ginny Weasley) I was expecting something more than one poster hanging in the window.
