"Harry, A History" Makes New York Times Bestseller List

Harry, A History
Posted by: Melissa
November 12, 2008, 06:02 PM

On Sunday, the New York Times Nonfiction Bestseller List will include Harry, A History. It will debut there at number 18 (a very lucky number in my, and many other people's, family).

It's tempting to say a lot right here. I'll save that for the website; for now, I'll just say thank you Leaky people, who have been buying it and talking about it and... and everything else. You can't expect me to think like a writer right now. Thank you. Thank YOU.

Do you know any international sales numbers? I’ve seen multiple book stores sell it here, which I didn’t know it would. So at least one sold in Sweden. :)

Hurray! I expect it to keep selling well for a while as “everyone else” hears how great it is!

WOW!!! Congratulations Melissa. That’s fantastic. You must be just floating right now. I got mine, but work has not allowed me much time to do any reading. Expect to start it (and finish it) over the weekend.

I started reading on a long airplane ride and I love it so far. It brings back so many memories. It also reminds me that HP has been so much more than a good read. It reminds me of our sense of community and the feeling that I’ve been a part of history . I am getting nostalgic for the insane and never-ending (until 7-21-07) speculation around plot points. Thanks for the trip, Melissa.
