J.K. Rowling’s chair – level 1

J.K. Rowling’s chair – level 1

15-04-2016 07:00

J.K. Rowling is the author of the “Harry Potter” books. She writes “Harry Potter” while sitting on a chair. She leaves a message on the chair. It says, “I wrote ‘Harry Potter’ while sitting on the chair.”

This chair goes up for auction. You can buy it for 65,000 dollars. It is a lot of money. Valuers say that it is worth it.

They say that there are not many valuable things in the “Harry Potter” world. The books are very popular. They are not valuable because they are everywhere.

Difficult words: valuer (a person who says how valuable something is), worth it (the price is good for what it is), valuable (there are not many of this thing and it is expensive).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
