Muggle Monday's

20/20 It was reported that ABC will be doing a documentary on JK Rowling, author of the HP novels. "The in-depth profile, which will air in November, includes several interviews, the book tour for the final "Harry Potter" installment, and a tour of locations that inspired her characters. It even hints to what the future holds for Harry and his friends." (click here for full story)

The Tales of the Beedle and the Bard
This book was referenced in the last HP series, and JK Rowling did actually hand write and illustrate it. It went up for auction and amazon won it for the bargain price of $4 MILLION!!! Don't think all that money went to waste, JK Rowling did not keep it, but instead donated it to charity. Amazon released this video to show how important this book is to them and the extent they are taking to care for the book. Will it ever be published? Will muggles ever get a chance to read all the stories in The Tales of The Beedle and the Bard?? Only time will tell!!
