"Harry Potter" Fans Find Pages Missing From Book

Some Potter fans eagerly reading their books were shocked to find pages missing from their precious copies of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows."

The book's publisher, Scholastic Inc., says so far a few hundred of the 12 million copies of the book are reported to have pages missing.

One such fan, Leanne Greer, says she finished reading page 306, then discovered the next 33 pages of the book were missing.

"I just kind of freaked out," says Greer. "My husband said, 'Why are you screaming?' He said 'I thought one of the kids was hurt.'"

But of course, like a die-hard fan should, Greer had a backup for her store-bought copy as she had ordered another copy online. So she opened up the package and kept reading.

Scholastic says that with such a massive printing 8.3 million copies sold in the first 24 hours a handful of problems was unavoidable. "Printing and distributing 12 million copies of a book is a Herculean task, and it is not surprising that some books would have printing errors."

They said Scholastic is happy to replace any book with a defect and advised customers to take defective books back to the place where they were purchased.

But another fan, Mary Hunt, says there's no way she's doing that.

"Oh, no way!" she says. "I have it and I've got it safely in its dust jacket inside one of those cloth book covers. It's too cool it's fun to have something people are talking about."
