Harry Potter Breaks Records — This Time in Book Sales

Now, I love movies a whole lot, but this news still made me smile: In a rare occurrence of a literary work outselling a hit movie, the revenue generated by J.K. Rowling's 7th Harry Potter book far surpassed that of the latest movie's (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix) opening weekend. Check out how impressive this is:

The final volume of J.K. Rowling's seventh-book fantasy series, sold a mountainous 8.3 million copies in its first 24 hours on sale in the United States, according to Scholastic Inc.

No other book, not even any of the six previous Potters, has been so desired, so quickly. Deathly Hallows averaged more than 300,000 copies in sales per hour — more than 5,000 a minute.

Seriously, think about that: 5,000 per minute

Well, Potter fans, tell me: Was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows worth all the hype? How do you feel now that Harry's story has come to a close?

P.S. — That's Kate Beckinsale's daughter Lily in the photo, and I just think she's adorable.
