We have a follow up today, on a story we told you previously regarding a rare complete set of Harry Potter books that were to be part of an auction for charity. This auction was completed last night, with the winning bid coming in at 18,200 Pounds (37,100 US Dollars) for the entire set of all seven of the Harry Potter novels, which were autographed by our favorite author. This auction was sponsored by Books Abroad, a charity that seeks to “educate children worldwide by sending free school books.” Jo, who was unable to attend the special event ball held last night, had donated these books which were considered so valuable, they were literally kept in jail to keep them safe before the auction. You can learn more about the Potter books and this charity, via this link. (Note at the link, be sure to scroll down and watch the second youtube video that shows the books being locked in the jail cell.)
