thanksgiving1YASMX3EXL._SL500_AA240_harry-potter-half-blood_l1Was J.K. Rowling prowling used bookstores in New Jersey when she hatched her best-selling series? Howard Rose of Brier Rose Books in Teaneck, N.J., is selling a first-edition copy of Truman Capote’s 1967 book “The Thanksgiving Visitor,” autographed by the author in January 1978 “for Harry Potter with gratitude.” The book is for sale on, the used-book e-tailer whose Reading Copy Book Blog first reported the curiosity. The asking price: a whopping $1,000, well above the average for the title. (Other first editions of The Thanksgiving Visitor on AbeBooks run between $60-75, while the cheapest signed copy is on offer for $375.)
