Coming Soon To A Shelf Near You

Hey, boys and girls! In your letter to Santa this year, you might want to include this:
New book from Harry Potter author out in December
Agence France-Presse

A new book from J.K. Rowling, the author of the phenomenally successful Harry Potter series, will go on sale to the public in December, her charity announced Thursday.

Rowling produced seven original handwritten copies of "The Tales of Beedle the Bard," giving away six to people involved with the books about the boy wizard and auctioning the seventh, which was bought for 1.95 million pounds (3.85 million dollars), by online retailer Amazon.

An English-language version priced 6.99 pounds will hit the shelves on December 4, published by Amazon and Bloomsbury in Britain and Scholastic in the United States.

And to increase your chances, include in your letter a promise to let me borrow the book after you're done. Remember, Santa favors those who are kind to charity cases!
