  4. ^ The Lord of the Rings is considered by most people to be a single book, because it was written and planned by the author to be such. Some people consider it to instead be a trilogy or series of three books, because it was originally published as a series of three volumes: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King. Lord of the Rings, Waterstones.com: This move by the publishing house was due largely to post-war paper shortages as well as to minimize the price of the first volume to aid sales.
    Wagner, Vit. "Tolkien proves he's still the king", The Toronto Star, 16 April 2007: In subsequent printings the book has sometimes appeared as a single volume, and in at least one case was split into seven.

  28. ^ An early press report claimed that more than 72 million copies of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" had been sold within the first 48 hours of publication („New 'Potter' sells 72 mil copies worldwide”. Hollywoodreporter.com. . Arhivat din original la . Accesat în .  [nefuncțională]). However, there has never been any evidence provided for this claim beyond the original source and it is almost certainly an error. All follow-up sales figures (for instance, those discussed on the separate entry for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows") are consistent with total sales figures well below 30 million during the first month of publication. For example, according to Scholastic publishers, there are only 14 million copies of the American edition currently in print, and not all have been sold. At the same time, sales of the American edition were originally reported to be comparable to or greater than the number of copies sold of the British edition. As of 18 September 2007, fewer than 4 million copies of the British edition had been sold in the UK along with a comparable number sold in other countries (Allen, Katie (). „Sprechen Sie Potter? How Harry is spreading the English language”. London: Guardian. Accesat în . ). Thus the total number of copies sold as of September 2007 appears to have been approximately 20-25 million. Translations into other languages began appearing in late September 2007, substantially increasing the estimated number of copies sold worldwide. In June 2008, Forbes magazine reported sales had reached 44 million.
