A press release from Canadian book retailer Indigo Books & Music Inc. has ranked Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows as the top book of the decade in their newly released Young Adult Fiction list. The list was put together by a "dedicated team of Indigo book buyers," with the titles chosen based on their "impact and their popularity". Other books on the list include Markus Zusak's The Book Thief and Philip Pullman's The Amber Spyglass. The article continues to comment on the recent success of Young Adult Fiction, saying:

Young adult fiction flourished through the past decade with Indigo and Chapters seeing 200% growth through the latter five years. As expected, J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and Stephenie Meyer's Twilight saga top the Indigo Best of the Decade List for young readers.
The Harry Potter series also gained a place in the retailer's Booklovers' Top Ten "Life-changing" Books list, alongside other highly successful titles from Yann Martel's Life of Pi to Harper Lee's 1960 To Kill a Mockingbird.

Book lovers are invited to comment on the Indigo Best of the Decade List at the retailer's online community.

Please note that this list is AGAIN put together based on popularity. If some smart people would make a list based on quality I’m sure the Twilight books can be found right at the bottom and Harry Potter would be at least in the top 20 with definitely one book in the top 5

I just finished reading Deathly Hallows not twenty minutes ago! I’ve only read HBP and DH, I’ve seen all the movies, but I’m pretty sure that Deathly Hallows is the best one, with the first two close seconds. I miss Dobby.
