The Tales of Beedle the Bard

Apparently J.K. Rowling has released another Wizarding World book!

In "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" there was mention of a fairy tale book that all wizard born children (like Ron Weasley) have heard. "The Tales of Beedle the Bard" helped Harry and the others to...well, that is another story.

Anyway, she hand wrote seven copies. Six of them she gave to various lucky peeps who helped with the series. The seventh, though, is what is causing the commotion...

She auctioned it off. It was bought for $4 million! I have heard rumors that bought it. All of the mney will be donated to a charity that, "campaigns for children's rights across Europe, especially in Eastern Europe, where many children and teenagers grow up in institutions." Hmmm...

I think that these stories should be published SOMEWHERE for the world to see!!!

2 HOURS LATER: Hurrah!!! Check out!!!

Thanks to Anankas Diary for the extraordinary news!

Hello? Anyone there?

I know that ya are, so listen up. Theatre, and Andori Isilee are going to submit a book in the beginning of January for the Freaky Book Award (perfect name?). I even was bored so I was drawing seals for the cover of the book. (Like the Caldicott and Newberry ones) Ananka sadly can't do it, so who wants to? If nobody does, I will.
Y'all need to tell me what your book choice is!!! Happy Chanukka!

As you can see, our poll is closed. If anyone has any heartfelt objections, speak up now. Meanwhile, we will start compiling a list of our favorite books. I know we are all avid readers here, (no, duh!) but please limit yourself to two or three favorite books. (That is the choice that won.) I have chosen:

Kiki Strike: Inside the Shadow City
Death On the Nile

Yay! Also, that is an awesome header, Theatre! Feel free to put it up. It is really cool and it matches. (Ooo...matches....I am not a pyromaniac!!!)

Any ideas for a book award name? What about "Freaks Choice" or something?
If we do an award, we would all have to read EVERY book submitted, to vote. Eight books a month? I don't think so. How about Andori-Isilee, Theatre, and Ananka (totally random) start us off, if they want to submit a book. My head hurts.

We are all sad to say goodbye to Edge, who has left us due to the pressure of college. Goodbye and good luck! *sniff, sniff*
