Bloomsbury: Counting on "Three-Book Set" Relating to Harry Potter This Year

Harry Potter book publisher Bloomsbury made mention in a recent Reuters report regarding its yearly profits, that "[I]t was counting on a new Rowling three-book box set tied into the Potter series, and a non-fiction account of spies in World War II to support sales in the coming year."

This is quite interesting news, for we have yet to hear whether this "three-book set" will come in the form of a new release or, even, new Harry Potter material.  (We can dream!)

I agree will all who posited that the new product will simply be a new repackaging of Beasts, Quidditch and Beedle. They would be making a much bigger deal about it if new material were forthcoming from JKR. Any new box set of existing works by a highly popular author will generate a spike in sales, since it’s an obvious ‘gift idea.’ Further, JKR has repeatedly stated that her share of the profits from any new Potterverse volumes would be donated to her favorite charities, and the three existing books from the ‘Hogwarts Library’ are already so dedicated.

That should read ‘I agree with all,’ not ‘will all.’ ::grumbles at herself::
