J.K. Rowling Book Sells for 2.4 Million at Sotheby's

J.K. Rowling's Rare, Handwritten Book Just Sold For an Insane Amount of Money

If you thought you were the biggest Harry Potter fan, think again. One superfan recently bid 2.4 million at an auction to win a rare copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard, a book of children's fairy tales mentioned in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. In the final installment of the book series, Dumbledore gives Hermione the brown Moroccan leather storybook to become familiar with popular wizard tales. The book is also used by Harry to find clues to defeat Voldemort once and for all.

J.K. Rowling has only created seven handwritten and illustrated copies of the book, six of which were given away by Rowling as personal gifts to lucky Harry Potter fans. The seventh and final copy was auctioned off by Sotheby's to help raise money for Lumos, Rowling's personal charity which aims to "provide children with access to health, education and social care tailored to their individual needs."

Knowing that the money spent on the book will go to a great cause makes it even more special. Check out another photo of the inside of the magical book ahead.
