the tales of beedle the bard

all in the name of charity, amazon.com has purchased one of JK Rowling's handmade copies of "the tales of beedle the bard" at an auction in sotheby's london at a whopping 1,950,000 pounds. apparently there are only seven copies in existence and amazon.com was nice enough to share their review of the five tales that rowling painstakingly handwritten and illustrated.

i'm wondering if rowling has any plans of mass marketing this book later on, because that would be a wonderful gift to all her fans who lived on her potter books. if not, i only hope they would release high resolution scans of the book even for a fee, because that would just be wicked!

go HERE to read the review and spoilers.
