Amazon.com spent $4million on a book of fairy tales

Who could command such high prices as US$4,000,000 for a hand written book? Is it an original by the Brothers Grimm, written in their own blood? Or perhaps it is a lost Shakespeare, where he decided to write a book for his kids instead of all those violent plays?

Nope, it’s J.K. Rowling. Of course it is. Silly me; however, it was a charity auction, so the high price is all tax deductable… I mean, it’s all going to a good cause.

Fancy a look? Here it is. It looks quite nice. I’d quite like a copy to flick through it myself, but her handwriting isn’t great so on second thoughts, I’ll just wait for the movie.
