January Books 2) The Tales of Beedle the Bard

A quick and not terribly profound read. Rowling presents this as Hermione's new translation of traditional wizardly tales, with notes by Dumbledore as annotated by Rowling. The stories are all rather straightforward moral lessons; the Dumbledore annotations don't add much (apart from some curiously misplaced jabs at another Potter, ie Beatrix). Pretty easy to digest, except the middle story which is rather gruesome.
