Thursday was the book's official publication date, but it couldn't be ordered before then through Amazon because the online retailer and Rowling's U.S. publisher, Hachette Book Group, are arguing over e-book terms. Amazon delayed shipments for some books by Hachette authors or made the releases entirely unavailable.

Buying "The Silkworm" in hardcover still isn't without some frustration: Customers were told delivery would likely take 2-4 weeks.

Barnes & Noble's website ranks "The Silkworm" No. 1 for print and No. 5 for e-books.
