ABSTRACT
The article reports that the release of the seventh and final installment of the Harry Potter book series "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" in July 2007 has boosted the sales performance of the children/young adult category in the U.S. in July 2007. The success, however, did not lift as many other categories as it has when the sales of the hard cover segment and audio book of the previous book climbed in 2005.
