Scholastic has announced that the script to the London stage production “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two” has sold more than 2 million copies in North America in its first two days. As impressive as those numbers are, the total is well below the 8.3 million copies sold in 2007 for the first day of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” J.K. Rowling’s then-presumed finale for her fantasy series.  A text edition of “Hamilton” has also been a best-seller this year. Reviews for the “Cursed Child” have been mixed, but the new Potter still maintains tops spots on the best-seller lists of Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com.
