Harry Potter – the weekend’s biggest entertainment

Two years ago, I wrote about how Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix’s $90 million haul was bigger than that of Hollywood’s biggest movie of the week. With reports of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince selling through more than 10 million copies *today*, this book is debuting bigger than any movie has ever debuted. If Amazon’s $17 price is at all representative, that means that Half-Blood Prince will have a $170 million day.

Oh, and if the spolier Stallman posted a couple days ago turns out to be accurate, this is going to be a helluva story.
