File under: We've got to read this, right?
British bookshops opened their doors early on Thursday for the U.K. launch of "Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling's long-anticipated first book for adults, "The Casual Vacancy."
There were no huge lines or wizard costumes. This novel is most definitely for adults causing some controversy for parents who need to say "no" to youngsters who wanted give this non-Harry novel a try.
It's highly likely nothing Rowling publishes will ever match the success of the Potter books, which have sold more than 450 million copies around the world.
But booksellers are confident "The Casual Vacancy" will be one of the year's best-sellers, whatever reviewers say.
What do you think? Do you want to read it?
