Once again, we love Harry Potter and don’t wish any ill will to JK Rowling and her fans. Also, once again, no one is trying to compare the literary merit of the two books, especially since they are not in the same genre (HP=hero’s quest vs. Eclispe=romance) other than they are primarily directed to YA fantasy readers.
On the other hand, this is quite a sales accomplishment. It has taken other novels much longer to do this than it has Eclipse.

I want to make a point that this is the USA today list and not the New York Times best seller list. We’re still waiting on the latter.
