Guardian Unlimited Books | Review | The Bookseller

The Guardian's Bookseller column observed yesterday that the paperback edition of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix has been kep off the #1 spot in the weekly sales chart:

It is a surprise when a JK Rowling novel performs like any other successful title. That is what the paperback of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Bloomsbury) did on its first day in the shops last week, selling 37,000 copies in adults' and children's editions, and just failing to overtake the weekly sales of the two editions of Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time (Vintage/Red Fox).
