Still breaking records
This time in the UK.
LONDON (Reuters) - Publisher Bloomsbury said on Monday 2 million copies of the latest Harry Potter book had been sold in the UK during the first day of release, in-line with expectations.
Bloomsbury said sales of "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince" were 13 percent higher than the comparable figure for first day sales of the previous title, "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix."

And as this is the first days' tally, it must make Rowling entirely thrilled to see her book so very cherished.
