"Harry, A History" Makes New York Times Bestseller List

Harry, A History

November 12, 2008, 06:02 PM

On Sunday, the New York Times Nonfiction Bestseller List will include Harry, A History. It will debut there at number 18 (a very lucky number in my, and many other people's, family).

It's tempting to say a lot right here. I'll save that for the website; for now, I'll just say thank you Leaky people, who have been buying it and talking about it and... and everything else. You can't expect me to think like a writer right now. Thank you. Thank YOU.

Already said congrats on the HaH site, but I’ll say it here too. This is awesome. I hope the book continues to sell well.

My friend promissed me she will bring me one copy of your book when she goes to New York! I live in Brazil and wanted to buy the book online from Amazon…. but she wants to buy me a copy (and one for her, of course), so I’ll just have to be patient… but I can’t wait to read your book Melissa!!

Congratulations to you!! \o/

I’m about 1/2 way into “HaH” now. I became an HP fanatic less than 3 years ago, so it’s great to read about all the craziness that I missed.
