7th Harry Potter Already a Bestseller


Written on 1:34 PM by Unknown

Its been just a few days since the world was notified of the publication date of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" and the book has already rushed to the number 1 spot on the U.S. Amazon list and the Barnes & Noble bestsellers list.

Not only is the 7th Harry Potter book topping the charts of Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com, a deluxe edition, priced at $65, is at No. 2, outselling the "You" diet book, Sen. Barack Obama and an Oprah Winfrey-endorsed memoir by Sidney Poitier.

Publicist Kyle Good of Scholastic Inc, the U.S. publisher of the bestselling fantasy series, revealed on Saturday that a similar deluxe edition of Potter 6, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," had sold around 100,000 copies. The deluxe "Half-Blood Prince," according to Scholastic, includes a 32-page insert of art and illustrations, a "custom-designed slipcase," and a "full-cloth case book, blind-stamped on front and back cover, foil stamped on spine."

A note on the back of a marble bust at Edinburgh's Balmoral Hotel reads "JK Rowling finished writing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in this room (652) on 11th Jan 2007". This has now been confirmed by an official spokesperson of J.K.

We will follow all important updates leading to the publication of Book 7 on WazzHot. And from now on, all such blog posts on Harry Potter will also have a trivia related to the seventh and final Harry Potter.

Today's HP 7 Trivia
There is no explanation at the end of Half-Blood Prince as to the true identity of the mysterious "R.A.B.", who claimed to have stolen one of Voldemort's Horcruxes with the intent to destroy it, while replacing it with a fake that was recovered by Harry and Dumbledore. The most likely candidate is Regulus Black, who Rowling said was "a fine guess" for R.A.B.'s identity in an interview.
