Harry Potter Sets New Records for Library Downloads

OverDrive has just released their top Downloads Lists for March, and guess who is on it?

Even though Pottermore only released the ebooks in the last week of March, and OverDrive could only distribute them for 3 days, the Harry Potter series still managed to jump on to the list. Harry Potter & The Philosopher Stone, the first book in the series, debuted as the 6th most downloaded juvenile ebook. It’s on the list as the 5th most downloaded juvenile audiobook, as well. The second book in the series also made the list as the 9th most downloaded juvenile audiobook.

Among the titles bumped by Harry Potter were Breaking Dawn, the 4th title in The Twilight Saga, as well as other titles by popular authors like John Grisham and Christopher Paolini.
