So just yesterday I posted a little thing that mentioned The Tales of Beedle the Bard, the handmade book by Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling that was sold at auction for nearly $4 million. (For those not keeping up, Tales is referenced in â€”Â is in fact quite important to â€” Harry Potter and the Dealthy Hallows.) All yesterday's news said was that an agent purchased it.
Turns out the real buyer was Amazon.
What does this mean?
It means we get to see it. And look at it. And talk about it.
Three cheers for Amazon, I say.
