J K Rowling Working On Her Next Billion
By user12607856 on Jul 31, 2008
I got "spammed" by Amazon today, telling me that there will be a new book by Rowling coming out in December, and that it was written to supplement the Harry Potter series.
It's titled The Tales of Beedle the Bard and comes in two flavors:
- The Standard Edition.
Looks like a regular hardcover. Okay, it is a regular hardcover.
Something you child
can safely read and not cause you conniptions every time they roughly
turn the page.
- The Collectors Editon.
This is the special version, offered exclusively by Amazon,
that you will keep in your book safe (you do
have one of those don't you?), and where you put on the special gloves to gently
turn the pages when reading it in your special climate controlled reading
And yes, like lemmings off a cliff, I'm sure we'll be ordering it (the common or garden variety), so the Amazon marketing machine is working just fine.
