Guardian Unlimited | The Guardian | Harry Potter casts spell on publishing

Waterstone's said there has been a tenfold increase in the number of new children's books released every month since 2000. In a state of decline before the appearance of Harry Potter in 1997, sales of children's books excluding the young wizard have since been growing at a rate of 2% a year. "Demand for other children's authors, stimulated by interest in Harry Potter, has helped the publishing industry as a whole," Waterstone's said. "New writers are now taken more seriously, recognised more quickly, and invested in more heavily."
