Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Now Available at Leading Bookstores

Wazzup Pilipinas!
"This is funny. Fully Booked is selling the new Harry Potter book for only 999. While National Bookstore is selling it at almost 1,500. Of course, you would go to the one selling it at a lower price. 
By the way, both bookstores are selling the same story. Scholastic Asia's post made it appear that Fully Booked is selling it illegally. Fully Booked's editions are from the UK publisher. Scholastic Asia from the US publisher. 
It's just unfair that the Harry Potter books (through Scholastic Asia) in the Philippines is more expensive compared to other countries. 
What an injustice to the PH Potterheads, who happen to be one of the most dedicated fandoms in the world. 
I hope J.K. Rowling is aware of this." - Kat De Castro
You must be one of those Harry Potter fans who already have a copy of the book by visiting either Fully Booked or National Book Store early in the morning of July 31 here in the Philippines when the book is officially sold. 

Just keep on mind the price difference between the two leading bookstores since the two releases came form different publishers (US and UK). They have different pricing. But I'm sure for many Harry Potter fans, the price difference is insignificant. They would immediately bu at the nearest bookstore where the book is available in fear of running out of stock of the very popular book series.

The 8th book of the ‪#Harry Potter‬ Universe, which is a compilation of the rehearsal scripts for the play 'HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD', has been released today! The play is set 19 years after the conclusion of 'Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows'... and held its world premier on July 30, 2016 at London Palace Theater.

The story follows Albus Severus Potter, Harry and Ginny's 11 yr-old middle child, as he starts his own journey at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

The play — which opened Saturday at London's Palace Theatre — is receiving equal enthusiasm.

For those who can't get to London, or wherever the show may debut next, Rowling said: "People will be able to read the play, so they won't know everything because there's lots of surprises on stage but they'll know the story."

The surprises of production and plot have stayed largely clandestine, despite two months of play previews, with the help of #keepthesecrets buttons handed out at each performance.

Cursed Child goes far beyond dutiful brand extension with an entirely original and hugely ambitious sequel to the Potter books, presented in two parts and nearly five hours long. Author J.K. Rowling, working with London theatre veterans Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, have delivered a production that’s as spectacular as it is ambitious, stuffed with special effects and twists that had a preview audience gasping, Cursed Childis a story that doesn’t play it safe with the Potter canon and will change how fans see certain favorite characters forever.

The plot, kept under an invisibility cloak of secrecy until now, has a very grabby premise.
