J.K. Rowling working on Harry Potter encyclopedia

From SheKnows Canada
A brave and strenuous endeavour, but it’s all for the fans. J.K. Rowling announced she is getting to work on a Harry Potter encyclopedia, which will include pretty much everything.

If you are a major Harry Potter lover, this news should thrill you.

The HP author, J.K. Rowling, is not being idle, that’s for sure. Gearing up for the release of her first adult fiction novel, the writer has one more boy wizard book up her sleeve. No, it’s not an eighth Potter instalment, but rather a catalogue of information about the wizarding world…

Whatchu sayin’, you may ask?

Rowling is compiling a Harry Potter encyclopedia, y’all! That’s right. Anything and everything there is to know about the wizard realm will be in this compilation of things awesome.

"It is likely to be a time-consuming job, but when finished I shall donate all royalties to charity,” stated Rowling on her website. And all the money goes to charity? This may just be the most brilliant idea… well, ever.

No word yet on a release date, but for now, mark your calendars for The Casual Vacancy (Rowling’s first post-Potter book), which comes out on Sept. 27, 2012.

So, Harry Potter encyclopedia — are you in or out?
