Book stuff: Another note about J.K. Rowling's The Tales of Beedle the Bard. It is now the fastest-selling title of 2008. Reuters
reported that "more than 2.6 million copies sold worldwide in less than two weeks."
Proceeds from sales of the book, which has a global print run of eight million copies, will go to the Children's High Level Group (CHLG), a charity for vulnerable children in Eastern Europe co-founded by Rowling.
A sad note—Gina was the first to alert me to this. Majel Barrett Roddenberry, the widow of "Star Trek" creator Gene Roddenberry and an actress whose longtime association with the "Star Trek" franchise included playing Nurse Christine Chapel in the original series, died early Thursday morning. She was 76. From the LA Times
She played the minor role of Nurse Chapel when the series began airing on NBC in September 1966. Roddenberry had another distinction: Beginning with the original series, she supplied the coolly detached voice of the USS Enterprise's computer -- something she did on the various "Star Trek" series.
