Harry Potter books now need to be pre-ordered!

The  Harry Potter book now needs to be pre-ordered!
Unfortunately, we will only be able to guarantee copies of the new Harry Potter book Saturday night to people who have pre-ordered them. But while supplies last we are still accepting pre-orders--call the store at 919-286-2700.  (You don't have to pre-pay).

We are very sorry about this, but we won't have as many books on hand on Saturday as we thought we would. (We suspect that Voldemort hacked our orders!) We expect to have lots more books available early next week. 

  If you see this guy, ask him what he did with our books! 
Harry Potter Saturday at midnight  
and Waldo Sunday afternoon at 3:00

Saturday, July 30, 11:30PM -- July 31, 1:00AM -- Please note the time
The Eighth Story. Nineteen Years Later: Pre-order your copy of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child--Parts One and Two (Special Rehearsal Edition): The Official Script Book of the Original West End Production by calling the bookshop (919-286-2700). Then join us Saturday night (July 30) at the bookshop at 11:30PM for a costume party leading up to the book release at midnight! (Doors will open at 11:00). Which "House" will you be sorted into by Minerva McGonagall and the Sorting Hat? Come in costume and be entered into a free raffle for a Regulator Bookshop gift certificate.

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, a new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London's West End on July 30, 2016.

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child must be pre-ordered to guarantee that you will get a book Saturday night!

Sunday, July 31, 3:00PM -- Please note the time
This celebration is the culmination of the month-long Find Waldo Local Scavenger Hunt, presented by the Regulator Bookshop and Sustain-a-Bull. Waldo, the famous children's book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs, has been hidden in businesses all over Durham for the month of July. Those who spotted him are eligible to win prizes, including Waldo stickers & books, and gift certificates to local businesses.

Hunters who found Waldo in 20 or more locations will be eligible for the grand prize drawing on July 31 -- a multi-volume deluxe set of Waldo books. Other prizes include gift-certificates to local businesses, a ukulele from High Strung Violins & Guitars, and other specialty items selected by local merchants for the event. Plus, everyone who comes to the party dressed as Waldo will be entered into a chance to win a Regulator Bookshop gift certificate. You don't have to be present to win when we pull your name from the hat, but it's going to be a good party!
