According to a story in today's SF Chron it took 5 months of planning to get all of those copies of HP5 to arrive on Saturday:

As if by magic, more than 400,000 families across the country opened their front doors Saturday to find a neatly packaged "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" book on their doorsteps.

Worked for us. Only Amazon did not use a plain brown box - they had a specially printed box. It was a bit weird but if you are going to sell books by hyping them to death you might as well go all they way, eh?

who read HP1 and had her fill but respects the HP passion of others :-)
