OK, Harry Potter may not be in this book, but with the December release of The Tales of Beedle the Bard, JK Rowling is set to make a few more dollars off the Harry Potter universe. This book was referred to (and played somewhat of a big role) in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, so if you want to read these actual purported fairy tales for wizards, you can pre-order today!
The Tales of Beedle the Bard should be an interesting read by my estimation, but it won’t be quite as long as the Harry Potter books. Nevertheless, this isn’t stopping Amazon from offering the volume in an Amazon-exclusive The Tales of Beedle the Bard Collector’s Edition for a mind-boggling $100! (The Standard Edition can be pre-ordered for $7.79)
At any rate, either one is a steal if you consider the fact that Rowling published a mere seven copies of this book back in 2007, and Amazon bought one of those copies at an auction last December for nearly $4 million. Well then…what are you waiting for? Go preorder yours today!

The Dark Knight was good. In fact, a lot better than I expected. There’s action, there’s a decent plot, it’s not hokey like previous Batman movies, and it’s not loaded with sexual content. (Now that’s a new one in Hollywood!)
The story is a bit dark, but what do you expect from a movie titled “The Dark Knight”? However, it’s not overly dark. I was hesitant to watch it in the first place because I didn’t want to leave the theater all depressed and all, but while the plot has its dark side, it’s not film noir.
And yes, it’s long, but that’s a good thing. At a few points during the movie I thought to myself: “if this ends now, that’s just lame.” But it kept on going until a satisfying end. Definitely worth seeing.
