Potterheads unite; grab your broomsticks. The big day is right around the corner! The seventh and final installment in the series is due out on Saturday, July 21st at midnight.

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,'' by author J-K Rowling is already a hit.

A staggering 325 million copies have already been sold worldwide. The pre-orders alone have broken sale records online for sites like amazon.com.

Amazon.com says the company has received over one million book orders to date.

Barnes and Noble books also received more than one million orders in online presales for the book.

At the Amazon shipping facility, the books are being kept in a special area that's patrolled 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Only certain employees with special credentials are allowed in the areas and they are only allowed to handle the books as is necessary to pack and ship them.

Rumors are abuzz that the book has been leaked on the internet, a few days before its official release.

Photographs of the pages have already found their way to a number of websites that have seen a deluge of fans checking in to find out which character dies.

Rowling says the only way to know the true version is to read it for yourself.
