Record sales for Go Set a Watchman

Go Set a Watchman, the long-awaited follow-up to Harper Lee's classic novel , was released yesterday. The story takes place 20 years after events in To Kill a Mockingbird.

The book was Waterstone’s biggest pre-sale ever, beating JK Rowling’s final Harry Potter book in 2007. Pre-orders of the novel were outselling EL James’ Fifty Shades Of Grey by more than three times over the weekend. Fans queued up in bookshops across the world on Monday 13th July in anticipation of the novel’s midnight release.
