Potter Still Has the Magic Touch at the Register

By LJ Staff

J.K. Rowling’s cash cow in granny glasses continues to churn out the cream: Scholastic Corp announced September 21 that Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has sold a jaw-dropping 11 million copies since its July 16 release. The book is selling faster than its predecessors, which, reports New York’s Newsday, took several weeks longer to generate identical sales. ‘This is the most successful Harry Potter,’ Scholastic’s Kyle Good told the publication. Creator J.K. Rowling is expected to start on the next and last installment in the series as early as this year, with an estimated publication in mid 2007.
