“Deathly Hallows” Will Piss Off The Fundies

Harry Potter and the Deathly HallowsA peek above our garters to GrrlScientist, of Living The Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

Ever hear a fundy use the argument from popularity, “the bible is the highest selling book year after year so it must be right”?

Next time be sure to smack them with a great big fat heavy copy of Harry Potter.

Even though the new Harry Potter book won’t be on the bookshelves until 21 July, its sales are already truly staggering; outselling even the Bible.

And it hasn’t even been released yet!

And from the original story on Yahoo! News,

The deluxe “Half-Blood Prince,” according to Scholastic, includes a 32-page insert of art and illustrations, a “custom-designed slipcase,” and a “full-cloth case book, blind-stamped on front and back cover, foil stamped on spine.”

Barnes & Noble.com shoppers can get a bit of a break on the deluxe “Deathly Hallows,” which the superstore was offering for a mere $45.50. The regular edition has a list price of $34.99, although Barnes & Noble and Amazon.com were selling it for $18.89. Wal-Mart had it at $17.27.

Many stores said they don’t make money on the Potter books, but hope instead that customers will make additional purchases.

Rowling announced Thursday that “Deathly Hallows” would come out July 21. The previous six books have sold more than 325 million copies in 64 languages and broken countless sales records. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” published in 2005, had an announced first U.S. printing of 10.8 million copies and sold 6.9 million copies in its first 24 hours.

Oh man, the fundies will be passing bricks. All that Satanic Witchcraft and Evil Stuff and Goings On In The Middle Of The Night, corrupting the minds of children all over the world.

I love it.

    Hi Amanda!

    It’s a silly argument, and you’re not a fundy.

    I hope it’s as good as the others!

    I’m sure it will be, though so far, the best two IMHO are Prisoner of Azkheban and Order of the Phoenix. When that one comes out in the cinemas, the fundies will be spitting acid. It’s the most subversive of the books, dealing as it does with a school rebellion. How she got away with it I don’t know. Parents these days just don’t know what their children are reading.
