Muggle Monday's

NY TIMES BEST SELLER LISTFor almost 10 years now, the New York Times Bestseller list has had a POTTER book on it, resulting in the NYT creating 2 new lists so that other titles could make the list other than J K Rowling's stories.
The Book Review made the decision to start a separate children’s best-seller list. Most publishers and booksellers welcomed the change, because the Potter phenomenon was keeping new titles off the fiction list. Some observers, though, felt Rowling was unfairly evicted — after all, they pointed out, adults read her books too.
The children’s list was not the only change Rowling brought to the Times best sellers. In 2004, with Potter titles now clogging the children’s list, the Book Review introduced yet another list — this one, for children’s “series” books, ignored the sales of individual titles and instead tracked each series as a whole. Rowling’s books were deposited there. The best-seller list may now be Rowling­-free, but her books are sure to appear again on the list — almost certainly in November, when the sixth Potter film, “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” arrives in theaters.

Thanks to mugglenet- A TV spot from Order of the Phoenix has won "Best Animation/Family TV Spot" at the 2008 Golden Trailer Awards, which were held yesterday in Los Angeles. The spot, titled "Great Wizards", can be viewed here in QuickTime format.
