The Tales of Beedle the Bard - Collectors Edition

I am very excited that The Tales of Beedle the Bard are now going to be available to everyone, for a price that is. There are going to be two versions coming out in December. The standard one will just be a typed version of the original, but there is going to be a collectors edition, exclusively from Amazon.com, that will be a replica of the original. The replica comes with some cool bonuses as well J.K. Rowling mentions them on her site.

The new edition will include the Tales themselves, translated from the original runes by Hermione Granger, and with illustrations by me, but also notes by Professor Albus Dumbledore, which appear by generous permission of the Hogwarts Headmasters’ Archive.’ ‘Dumbledore’s commentary on the Tales, which was discovered among his papers after his death, includes some historical notes, personal reminiscences, and insights into that most mysterious branch of magic: wandlore.

The Standard Edition copy is priced at $7.59 on Amazon. The Collector’s is priced at $100. The proceeds well be going to the Children’s High Level Group. Of course Nick and I have already pre-ordered our Collector’s Edition copy and plan to get a standard edition too.

Today is the one year anniversary of the release or the last book in the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Nick and I had the privilege to host a book release party on this day last year. It was very exciting. After the party we went home and had a reading maration. Nick didn’t stop till he was finished with the book I on the other hand couldn’t stay up that long. I had to sleep a little before finishing. The strange thing is I am very carful with my books but after one read through of my copy of Deathly Hallows it fell apart I still have it but I had to remove the broken binding so now it is in loose pages that I find easier to hander then a large bound book. If I wanted to read a bound copy I wouldn’t have a problem we ended up with 5 copies in out home Nick and I both have 2 and our roommate has one. I’m rereading the book right now actully. Taking it slower is helping me savor the story.

My roommate watches the news, I don’t. So I get a lot of my news from him. Well this morning he was chatting with me and was telling me about Milk haveing a new container. At first I’m thinking “ok why would I care about a milk jug”. Then he started to describ it and I got intrested. So I did a google search and found a news article on the new york times website talking about it. I’ve got to say it looks cool. I’ll be looking for it on the shelf next time I go into a Walmart.
