Harry Potter Mania In East Texas

From wizards to hogwarts and even some Harry Potter look-a-likes, East Texans celebrated Saturday morning as book number seven hit the shelves at midnight.  At Barnes and Noble in Tyler, dozens of people were lined up outside, wrapping around the building.  Kids of all ages dressed up in their favorite characters and anxiously awaited their turn to purchase Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.  Each fan had their theory as to who may just die in the end.

"He and Voldemore can't live at the same time, it just can't happen," said fan Jason Eslicker.

"Nevel is going to kill Voldemore, go Nevel," said fan Lyndia Worthen.

"It's the last book, it's the seventh one and you know supposedly someone dies," said Barnes and Noble Jodi Gilley,.  "We don't know who it is, and we don't know if she'll write another one, so it's truly a madhouse tonight."  Twelve million copies of Harry Potter's last installment have been printed for the United States alone.
