The Numbers Add Up Quickly

harry1.jpgIn case you are wondering … Scholastic, publisher of paper gold, estimated that 8.3 million copies of the 12 million first printing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows sold in the U.S. on Saturday. By contrast, in 2005, some 6.9 million copies of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince sold on the first day.

I should also note that if you haven’t yet purchased your copy stop by the old neighborhood bookstore. Sales were brisk — some 675 were sold — but RCB still has some and they’re still selling them at discount.
