So long Harry Potter

Papercuts today announced that Harry Potter has disappeared from the NY Times Bestseller list. It has been on the list for the past ten years and now a year after the last book came out it has vanished. I am not surprised. With poor writing and a plot that hinged on the next novel, it is not surprising that the Potter books would eventually disappear from the Bestseller list. This does not however mean that they do not have as much value anymore. We don’t see famous classic novels remain on the Bestseller list for years. The fact that her books remained on the Bestseller list for ten years is a noteworthy event in the literary world, as well as the fact that her last novel had the most pre-sales for any book. Potter is not about to fall into the abyss of nothingness.
