Potter Numbers, A Retrospective

Via the Guardian:

  • The new Harry Potter’s print run is “10m in the United States,” “the biggest first printing of any book, ever.”

  • “The previous volume, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, was the fastest-selling book in history, shifting more than 5m copies in a single day.”
  • “Rowling already earns more than any other woman in Britain, bringing in something close to £100m a year.”

More numbers and pics — forgive the time lag, but I’ve lost my digital camera — later today.
