October 30, 2008, 05:16 PM
USA Today is marking 15 years of their Best Selling Books List, and the Harry Potter novels by J.K. Rowling hold seven of the top nine spots. With Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone coming in at number one, two other books (Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution, and The Da Vinci Code) outsold the remaining novels in the series. The fourth spot on the USA Today list seen here is held by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, with Order of the Phoenix taking the fifth spot. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is ranked sixth, followed by Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets at number seven, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban at number eight and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire at number nine.
The article also points out that J.K.Rowling, "whose 1998 debut, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, is No. 1 in all sales since 1993 and spent 31 weeks in the top spot, longer than any other book."
What?!? Da Vinci Code outsold 6 HP books! Wow, I like Da Vinci Code buts its popcorn fiction, even non-HP fans would find this result a shock. Oh well, 7 out of nine places including number is still quite a feat!
