Harry Potter faceThe five Harry Potter books have sold 250 million copies worldwide. Author J.K. Rowling's agent, Christopher Little, confirmed the extraordinary sales figures on Monday -and revealed that, consequently, Rowling had begun work on the sixth Potter adventure. Mr Little said the series had “entered the history books again with its recordbreaking sales”.
The books have been sold in more than 200 countries and translated into 60 languages from Hindi to Ancient Greek. The fifth book, The Order of the Phoenix, sold 1.78 million copies on its first day in the UK alone. Teachers and publishers believe that the Potter books have been helpful in encouraging more children to read.That success is even more welcome in an age dominated by TV, cartoons and computer games.
“J.K. Rowling's books have shown the way for a new generation of writers of exciting children's books, causing a revolution in children's enthusiasm for reading,” Mr Little said. Rowling, once a single mother who wrote her books in an Edinburgh café, is now a multi-millionaire ranked as the world's best paid author. The stories started as a way of making her daughter sleep, and now Rowling earns some 125 million a year -the equivalent of 388 for every word of her most recent book.
