Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is the sixth and penultimate book in the Harry Potter series.
Did you know that : 9 million copies of the book were sold within the first 24 hours of its release, a record which was eventually broken by none other than its sequel - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
J.K.Rowling first considered this title for the second book - Chamber of Secrets but then decided otherwise as she felt that the information disclosed belonged to sixth book better.
