Post HBP knocked off the top spot

'Half-Blood Prince' has been knocked off the top spot at Amazon by Christopher Paolini's 'Eldest' (he also wrote the record-breaking book 'Eragon').

Quote:
"At least I'm young enough to get through the trilogy before I die," Paolini, now 21, told Reuters. He still lives with his parents in Montana, where he writes seven days a week.

Paolini's parents self-published Eragon and took him on a tour of schools, where he dressed up in medieval costume to promote the book. Eragon caught the eye of publishing giant Random House, and filming has just started in Hungary on a movie of the book, with a cast that includes Jeremy Irons and John Malkovich.

I suppose it's about time, HBP had a good run. I wonder how long book 7 will hold the top spot.

Eragon has only been out for 3 days now, to knock off HBP in that short time, id say that is a nice accomplishment for the young writer. And for such an advanced book, you are gonna see many great books published by him.

The book is probably good, but people might have just bought it to see what the fuss is all about. Harry Potter still has millions of fans and was on the best seller list like a minute after it was sold. congrats to him for such an accomplishment.

Well, honestly...you couldn't have expected it to stay at the top forever. I mean most everyone who wanted one now owns their copy. It's not like we're going to go buy another...
I'm quite pleased by this though. I love this trilogy. Major congrats to Chris!!!
