HBP reading in Autralia
A full reading of the Half-Blood Prince is scheduled in Brisbane, Australia.
Radio station 973FM has gotten permission from Christopher Little Literature Agency to read the entire book outside a famous Brisbane city bookstore. There are certain guidelines that must be followed, such as:
That the book reading must be a continuous reading of the entire book (post time of publication) with no breaks whatsoever;
That the concept is completely uncommercial, not for profit, not sponsored or tied to any third party, and no one is paid to take part in the reading; and
That radio 973FM doesn't record for future use - this permission is strictly for one-time use.
Without knowing too much about the size of the book, 973FM has created a 12 hour roster of people to read the book. Who will read? Celebrities, local identities & Potter fans will take turns in reading 10 minute passages of the book.

WHO: Brisbane, Australia radio station 973FM
WHAT: 973FM will be holding a non-stop book reading of Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince.
WHEN: Commencing this Saturday 16th July 2005 at 9:01am (Australian Eastern Standard Time) / Saturday 16th July 2005 12:01am (GMT) / Friday 15th July 2005 6:01PM (New York time)
