Global sales of Harry Potter books have surpassed 300 million, the agent for author J.K. Rowling said Tuesday.

Agent Christopher Little said the series reached the milestone following the publication of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” the sixth volume about the schoolboy wizard.

As of September, “Half-Blood Prince” had sold 11 million copies in the United States, according to publisher Scholastic, Inc.

Potter books have now been translated into 63 languages, most recently Farsi.
