Love books? Big fan of Harry Potter series writer J.K. Rowling’s? Is your answer to both question "Yes"?
If you do, I would like to tell you that here's another book to collect. It's called ‘The Tales of Beedle the Bard’, written by the legend herself J.K. Rowling. The book is a collection of five fairy tales as mentioned in the final Potter book “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.” According to the story, the said book was left to Hermione by Albus Dumbledore, headmaster of Hogwarts school.
Guess what? It's the fastest selling book of 2008 after selling more than 2.6 million copies sold worldwide in less than two weeks. Wow!!!
Since it was released on December 4, “The Tales of Beedle the Bard” has also topped the USA Today and Daily Telegraph charts raising 6.5 million U.S. Dollars for charity. Proceeds from sales of the book, with 8 million copies in print worldwide, will go to the Children’s High Level Group (CHLG), a charity for vulnerable children in Eastern Europe co-founded by Rowling.
