J.K. Rowling’s chair – level 2

J.K. Rowling’s chair – level 2

15-04-2016 07:00

The chair on which J.K. Rowling wrote the “Harry Potter” series is going up for auction, and it comes with a letter from the author. The chair and the letter will cost you 65,000 dollars. Valuers, however, say that the high price is worth every penny because of the importance in a “Harry Potter” history.  

There are not many things in the “Harry Potter” world that are so valuable because the books became very popular very fast. Publishers published them in large editions, so they are very common.

The author herself inscribed the sides of the chair. On the chair it says, “I wrote ‘Harry Potter’ ‘while sitting on the chair.”

Difficult words: valuer (a person who says how valuable/expensive something is), importance (being important), inscribe (to write on something).

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