I just picked up the new book by J.K. Rowling. It will be a quick read and I will love it just as much as the Harry Potter series. I also found out how Sir Nicholas, (Nearly Headless-Nick) died, he was executed? If it was I the Harry books then I missed it. This is stated in the over view by Dumbledore at the end of each chapter. I got the standard edition but I still love and it's in hardback. I only have one complaint; there isn't enough stories in this book!!!
