Previously we told you of the special prequel to the Harry Potter series written by J.K. Rowling for charity. This prequel was then published in a book called “What’s Your Story,” with the book rapidly selling out in the first days it was available. Thanks to TLC reader Roonwit, we can report that Waterstone’s has this book now back in stock, and available for purchase here.
UPDATE: It would appear it’s out of stock yet again, as they have now removed the page. Sorry folks!

The prequel features a short adventure with James Potter and Sirius Black several years before the birth of Harry. All profits from the sale of this book benefit Dyslexia Action and English PEN.

Thanks Roonwit!

AAAH! Thank you so much, Waterstone’s! I was hoping they would print more copies, but I wasn’t sure they would. Now I’m happy ;D buys

Avatar Image says:

Thats great news as I missed it first time too. Is it available in the store though, or only online? I guess I’ll just have to call the store.

Anything Jo writes is so special. Especially cheques.

good considering I ordered mine the day after it came out the first time and havent gotten it yet

Avatar Image says:

Yikes. If were to order it and have it shipped to me here in the US, I’d have to pay £5.00, which is about $9.25USD, and shipping is another £7.98, so altogether, it would be $24 USD. Ouch. That’s almost double what I paid for my copy of Deathly Hallows. Does anyone know if it will be published here in the US?

Avatar Image says:

Wow, 24 is a lot :S Does anyone know what it is Canadian? I’m guessing it’d be around that much too, and I have a friend who was going to sell me a copy for 18… Also, how did you get DH so cheap? Mine was 50 bucks.

Avatar Image says:

awesome! not sure if i want to pay that much for shipping stateside though. hmmm.

@ Professor Potter

Funny joke on the cheques there ;-) Though I know you didn’t mean it!

Avatar Image says:

@ Emily

Just checked: 24USD = 24,9CAD

@ Emily

(...or you knew that and that was not what you were wondering about… :P)

Avatar Image says:

Thanks for the heads-up! I’m in the UK and have just ordered it. My local branch had run out by the time I reached the shop.

Avatar Image says:

Emily, I don’t know if you bought yours from Bloomsbury or Scholastic, or if that makes a difference, but I think I paid $15 USD for mine from Amazon.com. Mine was the Scholastic version, if that helps. My mother-in-law gave me the British cloth-bound “special edition” version, and I think it was somewhat more expensive (not including shipping, which was certainly more to get it stateside).

Avatar Image says:

I just tried to order one (yeah – for $24… I think I am officially obsessed) – but shortly after I ordered it I got an email saying it was currently out of stock, but they were trying to get more… pout

Avatar Image says:

my deathly hallows paperback i got over a month ago here in australia and it was reduced to $11 after the first day.

Avatar Image says:

i guess i was 1 of the lucky few that managed to get mine by sleeping outside the store! and i paid R180 for my copy which is about $22 USD…. worth every penny!

Avatar Image says: A little insider info here. I'm a Waterstone's bunny and know some branches still have the 'whats your story' postcard book in stock...mine being one of them. If you're still wanting to get it, prod the booksellers in your local branch and get them to phone around other branches to get you one :P
