    I say more power to this lady - she went from living in her car to a Billionaire......

    There's clearly something about Harry. The new Harry Potter book sold an astonishing 6.9 million copies in its first 24 hours - averaging better than 250,000 sales per hour and smashing the record held by the previous Potter release.

    Even allowing for deep discounts on the $29.99 release, "Half-Blood Prince" still easily generated more than $100 million in revenue. It's not only the richest opening in publishing history, but tops the combined estimated take for the weekend's top two movies, "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and "The Wedding Crashers."

    We paid a little over $16.00 at B&N.

    I guess John McCain isn't carrying that Wedding movie... :cof:

    It was $15.97 at (the evil) WalMart.
