  OOTP is best seller in France - in English!
Updated 01 July 2003, 18.13
Boy reading Order of the Phoenix
The new Harry Potter book has topped the best seller list in France, the first time a book in English has done it.

French Potter fans won't get the book in their own language until December.

But excited fans who don't want to wait for the translation can buy it in English.

Flying off shelves

Books flying off the shelves
Which is why more than 16,000 copies have flown off the shelves there so far.

Book experts say that will probably go up to about 30,000 quite soon.

The brand new wizard adventures have outsold books in all categories in France, not just children's.

In the UK, OOTP broke all sales records, selling 1,777,000 copies on the first day.
