HOUSTON, June 23 (UPI) -- A Houston man is missing the last 51 pages from the new Harry Potter book and he's not the only one missing pages.
Matt Russell, 34, had to wait three years like everyone else for the latest Harry Potter installment, but he won't soon know which character dies in the end.
"It's killing me -- I'd like to find out who dies, but not from someone else telling me," Russell told the Houston Chronicle.
With an enormous first printing of 8.5 million, "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," such errors are expected, according to Houston book store manager.
A seller in Lynchburg, Va., Givens Books, reportedly discovered that more than 40 of its copies were missing 33 pages of the 870-page book.
Scholastic Inc., the U.S. publisher of Potter, said the books would be replaced.
