I'd find it funny if it were JK Rowling simply announcing that there would (still) be no more HP books.

I would be going crazy if she'd posted this swiftly after the last book, but I'm at least quite curious right now.

A. Whoever does her marketing is a fucking genius.

B. I'm afraid it's going to be something incredibly banal like, "We're finally releasing HP as ebooks!" or "I'm so filthy rich that I bought this YouTube page JUST TO RICKROLL YOU."

Is "banal" your word of the week (or past two or three weeks)?

My word of the day is "souvenirs."

My word of the week is "exorbitant."

My word of the month is "resplendent."

I'm just saying, you've used it a lot lately.

I'm going to use them all in a sentence:

This might be a banal statement, but I didn't bring you back any souvenirs from my vacation; all the ones that were particularly resplendent came with an exorbitant price tag.

I don't think it will be something I'll like more than the 7 books, but I'm still hugely excited!

I'm so excited! One theory I've read is that Rowling is going to use the website to publish the backstories of minor characters. It would be great to see the HP world fleshed out even more fully!

Agreed. I wouldn't mind seeing more back story to some of the characters, or even more focus on the school instead of just the main three.

Oh that would be the coolest! I've heard she has huge files of backstory and details to flesh out the world in her own mind as she was writing. I'm guessing the announcement will be another short supplement book with the proceeds again going to charity.

Well, I'd like my idea of stories centring on Messrs Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs, and their tenure at the school, I think it's most likely an encyclopaedia coming out.

Holy fuck did you call that or what?

While it will be more than that, that's pretty much the basis for this. She says it's a free website, but it will have an online store to purchase the e-books (genius, but probably $$ as I doubt anyone else will have rights) in order to fully take advantage of the site.

But for all of you who haven't checked, the announcement is up!

Well, if you'd rather have a

And, you know, it IS in a pot, so the whole dirt thing was a totally rational conclusion.

It's in a heart-shaped bowl, tyvm. *laughs aloud*

Also? I'm still waiting for your choice.... did you actually choose the dirt? Or do one of the other options better suit your fancy?

I actually thought it was a box of dirt at first also. Then on closer look I could tell they were cookies

I agree with A.

I'm hoping their going to announce a prequel to the series. It would be really cool to see some books about Tom Riddel, James and Lilly, etc. while they were at Hogwarts, or something about the first war against the death eaters.
