K. Rowling is one of astonishing facts: the fastest selling books of all time, the best-selling book series in history, and the first female billionaire author. Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone was published in the U.K. in 1997, with an initial print run of just 1,000 copies. Rowlings name appeared as J. K. Rowling on the book because her publishers feared her target audience of young boys may not want to read a book written by a woman. But by the fourth book, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the series had become a full-blown phenomenon. Since that first edition, the Harry Potter series has won accolades and gone on to sell more than 400 million copies, making it the best-selling series in history. But its more than numbers that tell the story of the hugely successful series. Its the dedicated fans and the renewed interest in reading that was sparked in both young people and adults that speak to the series true success. At its heart, the series is about more than simply a young boy attending a school for wizards. When you strip away the magic, Harry Potter is a story about the power of love and friendship, choosing your own fate and making the decision to do what is right, even when its not easy. Its a very human story with humble beginnings. From that first inkling of the Boy Who Livedas the title character is known in the seriesHarry Potter has gone on to transform the literary world and inspire millions.
