Amazon.comAmazon.com announced that, with over two-and-a-half months remaining until the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, it has taken more than 1 million pre-orders worldwide for the seventh and final book in the epic series.

In 2005, pre-orders for the sixth book, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, didn't reach the 1 million worldwide mark at Amazon until 174 days after the book was first available for pre-order. It took just 95 days to reach that mark for the seventh book. In the U.S. alone, more than 620,000 copies of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows have already been pre-ordered while the company's site in the U.K. has now surpassed 250,000 pre-orders.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows has been selling at a record-breaking pace at Amazon since pre-ordering began on February 1, 2007. First-day pre-orders for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in the U.S. were 547 percent higher than first-day pre-orders for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and sales for the seventh book have continued to outpace its predecessor's both at Amazon.com and each of its international sites.
