~found at Papa Ratzinger Forum
Joseph Ratzinger-Benedict XVI's JESUS OF NAZARETH went on sale in Germany today. But amazon.de says it quickly went past the seventh and last Harry Potter volume "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" (released in English) on its best-selling list.
Tahir Hussain, director of Amazon's book department said:
"the Harry Potter books are the best-selling titles of all time at amazon.de - so for the Pope's book to top it right away is an absolute phenomenon."
However, Ratzinger also outsold Potter once before - right after the Conclave, the German edition of 'Salt of the Earth' outsold 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.'
