Delivering the new Harry Potter
Thousands of Harry Potter fans are longing for that very special day to arrive: October 1, the day the German edition of the newest Harry Potter book is scheduled to appear. For those bookworms who want nothing more than to get their hands on Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Weltbild and Deutsche Post have found a way to alleviate the wait.
Several thousand of Deutsche Post night carriers will set off on September 30 before the strike of midnight, to make sure that the newest 'Potter' reaches mailboxes at the witching hour, long before stores open. Fans can settle into a comfortable chair and begin their magical reading session without delay.
With this service Weltbild and Deutsche Post draw on their successful partnering efforts of 2003, when night carriers delivered some 100,000 copies of volume five of the Harry Potter series right to the doorstep of ardent fans throughout Germany, long before daybreak.
If you order your copy from Weltbild no later than 3 pm on September 28, you can select the 'Witching hour delivery' option. The deliverer will then bring your long-awaited books to your door between midnight and 2 am on October 1.
