Talk Money: July 29

The book industry is about to get a boost from Harry Potter.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be released globally at 11.01am on Sunday, New Zealand time. It is not a novel - it is a play.

The play has been having previews in London, and has its official opening this weekend.

The play is top of both the Amazon and Barnes & Noble charts based on pre-orders.

The New Zealand publisher Hachette is coy about exact numbers, but says the pre-orders have "surpassed expectations".
