    Oh Mom! I got only three correct out of eleven.
    Are there any other answers which are all right or permissible?

    Worldwide sales of the five Harry Potter books have reached the 250 million mark. _The- this doesn't work because we don't use articles with names_ JK Rowling's agent, Christopher Little, confirmed the _news (OK, but do we confirm news? It's OooK, but sounds a bit odd)_ on Monday - and revealed Rowling had _begun_ work on the sixth Potter adventure.

    The series has been _published_ in more than 200 _countries_ and translated into 60 _languages_ from Hindi to Ancient Greek.

    The fifth _series (No- it's the fifth book but there is only one series)_, The Order of the Phoenix, sold 1.78 million copies on its first day in the UK _only (You had the right idea here, but I'm afraid it's not the correct word- 1/2 right)_.

    Mr Little issued a statement via Potter publisher Bloomsbury _that (yes)_ the series had "entered the _bestseller (hmmm- I think you mean the bestselling list)_ books yet again" with a "record-breaking, unprecedented _scale (A good attempt, but do we talk of a scale of sales- again, your idea is good, though)_ of worldwide sales" of 250 million.

    Teachers and publishers acknowledge that the Potter books have been instrumental in turning more children on to reading.
