The new Harry Potter will go down in history as the fastest and best-selling book for Indigo in Canada, the company said Saturday.


The chain reports that three books per second sold at Indigo Midnight Magic events across the country.


Indigo sold more Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows early Saturday than it did the phenomenal book, The Secret to date.


In Toronto, Indigo closed down part of Bay Street to host Canada’s largest Harry Potter Party, which saw more than 5,000 fans of all ages taking part in the magic.


Fans at Chapters in St. John’s, Newfoundland were delighted to be the first Canadians to get their hands on the book. Other major Potter parties were held in Halifax, Edmonton and Vancouver.
