Up For Auction: The Chair J.K. Rowling Sat In Writing The First Two Harry Potters

This is the chair J.K. Rowling sat in while writing the first two Harry Potter novels while she was a poor single mother living in subsidized housing in Edinburgh, Scotland. My how times change. The chair was given to her for free at the time, but has sold at auction twice since then (after she decorated it so you know it's the chair she wrote Harry Potter in), most recently in 2009 for $29,117. Current bidding this time is already up to $150,000, or, in laymen's terms, $150,000 more to spend on a chair whose legs would break if I sat on it. If I'm spending $150,000 on a chair it better be a throne, and it better be made out of crystal. "Meth?" Crafted by Walter White himself.

Thanks to MD, who may or may not be a medical doctor. Take a look at this thing on my back anyways?
