Albany -- A lot of Harry Potter fans have spent the last three days with their nose in the book.

The release of the seventh and final volume of the Harry Potter book series was released at 12:01 AM Saturday.

And while fans rushed to get their hands on copies of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows", book stores were preparing for a big weekend

Books-A-Million in Albany had it's doors open late as the popular book went on sale. Store manager Jeff Schuman says he wasn't surprised by the huge turnout.

"Starting from the hour that we opened Saturday it's been flying off the shelves, which is obviously what we expected," he said.

Scholastic Inc. reported that 8.3 million copies of the book were sold in U.S. during the first 24-hours the book was on sale.
