A world embracing Potter.
July 19, 2005
Holy Feathery Flying Griffons Hagrid!
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince sold 9 Million copies in the first 24 hours of sale in UK & USA alone
Also…. JK Rowling earn’t a reported 24 Million Stirling Pounds in that 24 hour period.
And…. "Half-Blood Prince” easily generated more than $100 million in revenue, making the book the richest opening in publishing history
So….. to put it into perspective, the previous Harry Potter novel "Order of the Phoenix" sold 5 Million copies worldwide!
No wonder the Catholic church hates it so much……
