J.K. Rowling writes new fairytales story

This is off the topic about mobile devices, but surely is a hot topic among the net as the author of the most famous wizard boy story named "Harry Potter"; J.K. Rowling has announced on Thursday that she's going to publish her new book in December.

The new book title is "The Tales of Beedle the Bard" will be published on December 4th, which at first Rowling initially only produced seven copies of "The Tales," bound in brown Moroccan leather and decorated in silver and moonstones. She gave six copies to people closely connected to the Potter books and auctioned off the seventh, which was bought in December by Inc, the Web retailer known for selling books, for about $4 million. She then donates an expected $8 million (4 million pounds) in proceeds to her charity for vulnerable children.

"The new edition will include the Tales themselves, translated from the original runes by Hermione Granger, and with illustrations by me, but also notes by Professor Albus Dumbledore, which appear by generous permission of the Hogwarts Headmasters' Archive," Rowling said in a statement.
