Harry Potter volume voted 'best book ever'

According to a recent article: More than 5,000 teenagers polled by the American Library Association have voted J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince" as the best book - ever.
Another survey revealed that Rowling, the author of the entire Potter series, has a bigger fan-base in the UK than even superstar-band U2. Rowling was fourth only to football team Manchester United, rock star Robbie Williams, and Liverpool's football club.

The Harry Potter series of books has broken sales records in both the United States and the United Kingdom: last summer (July 2005) "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince" sold nearly nine million copies - receiving a 'Platinum Award' for having sold over a million copies all in the course of a single day.

Ironically (or perhaps not at all), the entire series of Harry Potter books was also the most challenged of all those on the list of challenged titles for 2005-2006 as reported by the American Library Association.
