A Bloomsbury report released this morning got fans speculating with their mysterious statement that they hope a new Harry Potter related 3-book box set will boost their sales over the coming year.

Bloomsbury, which is to release a Hogwart’s Library Box Set by JK Rowling and Three Good Things by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall in 2012, said it would extend its focus on its academic business following the acquisition of Continuum.
