The chair J.K. Rowling sat in while writing the first and second "Harry Potter" books just sold at auction Wednesday for $394,000 –– and someone even painted all over it beforehand.
That someone was actually Rowling herself. In her usual tongue-in-cheek style, she painted phrases on the chair like, "I wrote Harry Potter while sitting on this chair."
The massive purchase also came with a letter from Rowling.
