A total of 295,000 copies of all the six Harry Potter novels have been sold in Bulgaria so far.

The news was broken by the publishers of the book Egmont Bulgaria at a special premiere of the book organized within the 25th edition of the International Book Fair in Sofia.

The publishing housed proudly said that the fact that nearly 300,000 copies of the books have been sold in Bulgaria is unique.

Bulgarian children have stormed the bookstores and stands after the release of the sixth novel - Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in their native language on December 13. 40,000 copies of the book have been printed, and about three quarters of them have already been distributed to book sellers in the country.

Those fans in Bulgaria, who do not understand English, had reason enough to be so impatient, as the original of the book was published July 16 and it took six months for the translation to come out.

The book has been published in hardcover and costs BGN 25. For those following the series it becomes more and more clear that each book in the series is more and more horrifying.

With Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Author J. K. Rowling gives her readers the darkest novel of her wizard series yet. Though deaths at the end of the book have already become a tradition, the character that she chooses to kill off this time leaves many wondering just how bad it could get in book number 7.
