Harry flies off shelves
The script to the London stage production Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two sold more than 2 million print copies in North America in its first two days of publication, Scholastic has announced. That’s well below the 8.3 million copies sold in 2007 for the first day of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, JK Rowling’s then-presumed finale for her fantasy series. But it’s still among the fastestselling works in history and a remarkable number for the script to a play. Reviews for the book have been mixed, but it has topped the best-seller list of Amazon.com.
