Good for her. She's done really well for herself.

It's old news for some but I've been looking at the cast for Half-Blood Prince. I'm pleased as punch that a couple of my favourite actors are in the series: namely, Jim Broadbent as Slughorn and Helen McCrory as Narcissa (not Bellatrix as she originally was cast). I couldn't have just anyone as Mrs Malfoy. Mrs Damian Lewis will certainly be suffice. :)

Oooooo! ahhhh! Great trailer.

If anyone is in Edinburgh this year, I heartily recommend "Potted Potter" All 7 books in 70 minutes, abridged by two nutty comedians. It's genius and very much fun. They came to my home town last weekend doing a pre-Edinburgh warm up tour.

A collection of fairytales penned by Harry Potter author JK Rowling is to be published to raise money for a children's charity.

The Tales of Beedle the Bard, which Rowling first mentioned in The Deathly Hallows, will go on sale on 4 December.

A handwritten copy of the book was sold at auction for £1.95m last year.

Rowling wrote and illustrated seven copies of the book, but offered only one for sale. It was thought the book would never be published.

Collector's edition

British charity the Children's High Level Group (CHLG), which was founded by Rowling and Baroness Emma Nicholson to help vulnerable children across Europe, will publish three editions of the book.

Bloomsbury and Scholastic will publish a £6.99 edition, featuring additional commentary on each fairytale from Professor Dumbledore, and an introduction by Rowling.

Yeah yeah yeah. Did anyone believe that??? Possibly only the person who paid 1.95m. I know it was handwritten but... Sucker. ;)
