Wealthy Words

Read this in the Guardian

The first five Potter books have now sold more than 265m copies in 200 countries and been translated into 62 languages. They contain 717,800 words - making Rowling's earnings about £1,393 per word.

Thats like every "word" of a Harry Potter book has earned Rowling more than a lakh in Indian Rupees. Are you in the queue waiting for the half blood prince!?
