Category: "Items I should have posted a week and a half ago"

I finished the latest Harry Potter last week. Don't worry, no spoilers here. Certainly interesting, filling in more and more backstory (I'm convinced Rowling could do a set of prequels on the days of Voldemort/the Potter parents/Snape, etc. at Hogwarts). And the last 200 or so pages are dynamite, as always. There's lots of criticism of Rowling out there in terms of being a fantasy writer, but as an avid reader, all you really need is a good story and the rest tends to fill itself in, and Rowling certainly has that. Of course, book seven's the payoff. And we wait.

Link: Personally , I believe the words "payola involving" should be removed from this headline. Then I'd be happy. (Yes, you have to click the link to get the joke!)


Theme? We don't need no stinkin' theme!
