The latest from J.K. Rowling is a collection of children stories of Beedle the Bard for wizards and muggles alike.
Thought to have been lost to the Wizarding World, Hermione Granger translated the copy left by Hogwarts former headmaster, Albus Dumbledore. The translated copy now comes with commentaries by the headmaster himself before his untimely demise.
I loved reading this book. It took me a month before I got a copy and less than hour to read through it. Haha! Reading through it was enjoyable and sparked again the mixed emotion of missing the wizarding world and rewarding feeling that it's over. The commentaries by Dumbledore was both insightful and hilarious at the same time. He had a great personality and wisdom. It made me miss him. *sigh*
My personal favorites are The Fountain of Fair Fortune and of course, The Tale of Three Brothers. The Tale of Hairy Heart is a bit serious, considering that the nature of the stories are for "children". Maybe this one is really for the not so young anymore.
I missed reading Rowling stuffs. Honestly, she really has a flair for writing and her wits are amazing. Haha! Maybe she really can tap into the child in you. I know she somehow tapped into mine. ^o^ How I wish she could write more.ü

I like her songs! Although I am not really into dance music I usually find myself gradually dancing to her tunes.=) Her "Just Dance" was stuck in my head for days and I love "Money Honey" too.
Other must listen in her album: Eh Eh (nothing else I can say), I like it rough, Summerboy, and Poker Face
