Lee’s book at No 1
Go Set a Watchman, the much-anticipated second novel by To Kill a Mockingbird author Harper Lee (pictured), is the most preordered print title on Amazon.com since the last book in the Harry Potter series, says Amazon.
The online retailer says the novel, to be published on Tuesday, is already the bestselling book on the website.
It is the most preordered book on Amazon.com since JK Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in 2007 – the seventh and final novel about the British teenage boy wizard.
Amazon did not provide figures for either book, but publisher Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins, said it had ordered an initial US print run of 2 million.
