When Harry Toppled Charlie
The sales of the new Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince not only went completely through the roof according to the latest reports --but it also managed to outsell the box office figures for Charlie And The Chocolate Factory which opened in movie theaters here in the US this past Saturday as well. Bearing in mind that the latter was also once an illustrated children's book written by famed British children's author, Roald Dahl, I think it's absolutely fantastic that we've lived to see the day when a book -- can outsell a motion picture.
Well done, Ms. J.K. Rowling. Very well done!
