A new book by the author of Harry Potter

For those who follow the world of publishing or maybe just Harry Potter you may have heard of the latest book by author J.K Rowling. Rowling wrote and illustrated 7 limited edition copies of The Tales of Beedle the Bard. One copy was purchased by Amazon for just under 4 million dollars. The other 6 copies were made and personalized for people who were involved with Harry Potter, all are bound in leather with embellishments such as semi precious stones and silver.
This holiday season the book will be mass published and many book sellers are hoping the latest book by Rowling helps lagging book sales.
I may pick up a copy out of sheer curiosity especially since the book was mentioned in the final Harry Potter book. Geez, I would love to be one of the chosen 7 who were gifted with such an extraordinary handmade book but at least I can buy a paperback version.
