Whoo! go DH. Just shows that it doesn’t matter what age group a book is for. Good writing is always popular.

And HBP right behind DH in the children’s category… Wonder if the Libraries consider Twilight a Children’s book. I know that right now our store is selling more of that series than Potter (to my dismay) ;-)

That’s not surprising there must have been 300 people waiting for it for every library :-)

And they waited for a good reason, the book was great! More than great! Squee!
