Harry Potter Book – Killer Sales Stats for Deathly Hallows

Posted by Kyle Design on July 23, 2007

The latest and, sadly, the last installment of the tale of life at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft andMoon and Stars Pocket Flask Wizardry, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, broke sales records by selling 8.3 million copies in its first 24 hours. By my calculations, I was responsible for .00000012% of that killer total.

Never has a book been so wanted so badly by so many. Absolutely Eyeglasses Cases for Reading Glasses astonishing, but probably not unexpected. Book sellers can celebrate how finely-tuned a distribution system they have that they were even able to sell that many copies that fast.

Whip out those reading glasses and get started! I saw numerous people carrying around their copy of the book, presumably trying to finish reading as much of it as possible before returning to work today. Might be a slow productivity day at many companies….

Warner Brothers even admitted that movie ticket sales of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix were affected this weekend because fans were more interested in reading than watching.
