Amazing Book New: The Tales of Beedle the Bard

Handwritten (yes, literally) and illustrated by JK Rowling, a copy of "The Tales of Beedle the Bard" sold at a Sotheby's auction for 4 million dollars. The book, one of only 7 in existence (how cool it would be to say you owned a copy- right up there with having a pair of ruby slippers), is very cool and proceeds from the sale when to help institutionalized children in Europe.



Here are some pictures from the book:
