'Harry Potter 5' Gets Going

Forget Chanel No. 5. Book five of Harry Potter is underway, author J.K. Rowling has confirmed. No date for its arrival has been specified, however. “I really want to take my time and just make sure that it’s as good as I can make it,” Rowling is quoted in press reports as saying. “I’m working on it now, and I have no intention of taking a break.” As she did reveal to a New York youngster last month, Rowling will call her latest installment “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.” Other info that has surfaced is that young redhead Ginny Weasley, the sister of Harry’s best friend Ron, will play a large role in this later adventure, and it will be shorter than the last book, “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.” which hit store shelves this year at 732 pages. All told, more than 66 million of Harry Potter books have been sold worldwide, in some 200 languages. Who even knew there WERE 200 languages?
