Amazon.com has a 200,000-square-foot high-security warehouse where the "Harry Potter" books are kept before being sent out. Staff are "carefully hand-picked," according to an Amazon spokeswoman, and the company is legally bound by an agreement with publisher Bloomsbury to keep many of the details surrounding the release a closely guarded secret.
