store in Delaware for the midnight release of the book
Notable also is the development a massive following of fans. So eager were
these fans for the latest series release that book stores around the world began
holding events to coincide with the midnight release of the books, beginning
with the 2000 publication of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The
events, commonly featuring mock sorting, games, face painting, and other live
entertainment have achieved popularity with Potter fans and have been incredibly
successful at attracting fans and selling books with nearly nine million of the
10.8 million initial print copies of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood
Prince sold in the first 24 hours. Among this large base of fans are a
minority of "super-fans" (or fangirls and fanboys), similar to the trekkies of
the Star Trek fandom. Besides meeting online through blogs and
fansites, Harry Potter super-fans can also meet at Harry Potter symposiums.
These events draw people from around the world to attend lectures, discussions
and a host of other Potter themed activities.
Harry Potter has also wrought changes in the publishing world, one of the
most noted being the reformation of the New York Times Best Seller list. The
change came immediately preceding the release of Goblet of Fire in 2000 when
publishers complained of the number of slots on the list being held by Harry
Potter and other children's books. The Times subsequently created a separate
children's list for Harry Potter and other children's literature.
