The One with Beedle the Bard


Wednesday, December 3, 2008

There are so many things to look forward to this month! Christmas, New Year's Eve, LOST Season 4 on DVD, The Dark Knight on DVD, and the release of this book on Thursday:
Can't get me enough Harry Potter! The next movie looks so good. Then again, I learned a good lesson about judging a movie by it's preview...

Amazon has a deluxe edition of the Tales of Beedle the Bard which looks pretty cool:I do have one question though - what's a Bard? Nevermind, I looked it up.
