Reports online are stating that at last night's Book Aid International auction, the Black Family Tree that Harry Potter author JK Rowling sketched and donatedopens in new window was boughtopens in new window on behalf of Daniel Radcliffe for £30,000 ($52,219).

Daniel also successfully bid on handwritten works by writers Iain Banks and Tom Stoppard.

Daniel's mother, Marcia Gresham, bid on his behalf at the auction & had this to say about Daniel and his reading:

This should put paid to anyone who says that Daniel doesn't like reading. Daniel hasn't stopped since he read the first Harry Potter book and he loves Iain Banks and Tom Stoppard.
