Believe it or not, it was 20-years ago today that the first Harry Potter book was published.
Joanne Rowling (or Jo as she was known then), dreamed up the story of the bespectacled boy wizard on a train between London and Manchester and after many rejections it was finally published by Bloomsbury, June 26, 1997 with 500 copies printed.  It was later released in North America with the title “The Sorcerer’s Stone.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and the six Potter books that followed have sold more than 450 million copies world wide.
