    Forum DH sells 11.5 million copies in 10 days

    Scholastic, the global publishing, education and media company, announced today that sales of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the blockbuster final volume in J.K. Rowling’s phenomenally successful series, reached a record breaking 11.5 million copies in the U.S. in its first 10 days on sale. This milestone comes on the heels of the previously announced 8.3 million copies sold in the U.S. within the first 24 hours of the book’s release at 12:01am on July 21st.

    Scholastic was printing copies of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows right up to the final hours prior to release and, with pre-orders and reservations climbing at an incredible pace, the Company was able to print enough additional copies to be in position for re-supply following the launch. The additional copies brought the total number of the U.S. edition in print for the seventh book to 14 million.

    Currently, Harry Potter titles and the deluxe edition of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows hold eight spots on the USA Today bestseller list. In the U.S. alone, there are currently 140 million copies of the seven Harry Potter books in print.

    Harry Potter books in print in the U.S. by title:

    Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone - 29 million

    Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - 24 million

    Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - 20 million

    Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - 19 million

    Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - 17 million

    Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - 17 million

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - 14 million

    To date, over 350 million copies of the seven books in the Harry Potter series have been sold worldwide.

    I want to know about the UK released HP book, cause I don't think it's sold as well as they expected? (maybe I'm wrong)

    She's got to be, she wrote 7 Harry Potter books which went on to sell over 325 million books worldwide and sold the movie rights to Warner Bros in which she makes at least a £1million per movie made or maybe even more...

    ...To answer your question:

    Yes, in March of 2004 she had made just over £430 million from the Harry Potter series.
