Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is sold in more than 10,000,000 
copies and it has 3,000 reviews on Amazon. Ancient Greek version has 
five reviews, which means that with the same ratio, it sold in 16,000 
copies - even if wrong by an order of magnitude, this still shows that a 
relatively large number of people is interested in Ancient Greek.
