Sales of HBP Paperbacks Equal OotP
Jan 12, 2007
USA Today has an article online about the sales of books in 2006, and mentions a curious fact about the Harry Potter novels. While the hardcover of Harry Potter and Half-Blood Prince was the number one bestseller for 2005, the list for 2006 sees the paperback edition of HBP ranked at number 21. Apparently, this mirrors sales for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix as well; the hardcover edition was the number one bestseller for 2003, while the paperback of OotP was ranked on the 2004 list at…number 21. Spooky!
