USA Today gives Potter six spots on Top 10 Books of 2000s List, but not No. 1

The Harry Potter series continues to pick up the accolades as the decade comes to a close. USA Today has released an article documenting the top books of the 2000s, with Potter taking 6 of the top 10 spots. Surprising to some may be that you don't see a Potter book until No. 3. The reasoning?

Rowling was a best seller before 2000, when fourth book 'Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire' sold a record 3 million copies its first weekend.

By 2007's release of the finale, 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,' speculation about Harry's death (unfounded) rose to levels not seen since Charles Dickens' 19th-century serials. A record 8.3 million copies sold in a day.

The top 2 spots went to Twilight by Stephenie Meyer and The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. Order of the Phoenix came in at No. 3 and Deathly Hallows was way down the list at No. 7. Prisoner of Azkaban was the only Potter book that failed to make the list.
