To absolutely no one at all's surprise, the final Harry Potter book is getting record orders at Amazon:
Amazon.com Inc. said on Friday first-day advance orders for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," the seventh and last installment of J.K. Rowling's successful book series, were 547 percent higher than for its predecessor.
Thursday's pre-orders for "Deathly Hallows" exceeded the first two weeks of pre-orders for its predecessor, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," Seattle-based Amazon said. "Half-Blood Prince," released in July 2005, generated more than 1.5 million pre-orders on Amazon, the online retailer said.
It really is not wonder that JK Rowling is well on the way to become the first person to make a $ billion from writing. Thank the Lord that it all ends this summer, eh?
