Even Harry Potter writer J.K. Rowling isn't above taking advantage of last week's release of Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets to make a few extra bucks. On December 12th, Sotheby's in London will auction off a 93 word synopsis for the upcoming Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix with the proceeds being donated to charity.
The card is autographed by Rowling and is expected to fetch as much $9,500. Sotheby's released the following random words included in the synopsis to further tease Harry Potter enthusiasts:
"Thirty-eight chapters...might change...longest volume...Ron...broom...sacked...house-elf...new teacher...dies...sorry."
