Author J.K. Rowling has reportedly donated a signed first edition copy of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince to be auctioned off to help raise funds for Peace Hospice in England. The spokesperson for the charity hospice is quoted in the Watford Observer newspaper as saying "Bids for a first edition Harry Potter currently on Ebay are up to $3,500 so we are hoping we will raise a lot of money for the hospice. JK Rowling contacted us through a third party to donate the book and she said she will be following the auction on Ebay." We will update you with more once the bidding starts next week.
Also, readers let us know that JKR is one of the nominees for the Italian edition of Vogue Magazine's Woman of the Year contest. This contest is open to the public, and you can vote for Jo here. Thanks to those who emailed with this!
