“Harry Potter is symmetrical.”
Not just symmetrical - this is ring composition, favoured by Homer and other good writers. The 4th book is at the centre of the ring.
JK Rowling knows her beans.
Reblogging because I like that phrase a lot.
I find it very amusing that it says: “Fudge places dementors at Hogwarts.” ”Fudge places Umbridge at Hogwarts.”, because we all know Umbridge and dementors are basically the same thing.
JK ROWLING KNOWS HER BEANS
For some reasons, “Harry finds out he’s wrong about Snape’s allegiance to Voldemort” twice makes me giggle. Also “Ginny wants Harry” then “Harry wants Ginny”.

LONDON – It’s been in print for over a century, but in future the Oxford English Dictionary — the authoritative guide to the English language — may only be available online.
Oxford University Press, the publisher, said Sunday that burgeoning demand for the dictionary’s online version has far outpaced demand for the printed versions.
By the time the lexicographers behind the dictionary finish revising and updating the latest edition — a gargantuan task that will take many more years — publishers are doubtful there will still be a market for the printed form. The online Oxford English Dictionary now gets 2 million hits a month from subscribers. The current printed edition — a hefty 20-volume, 750 pound ($1,165) set published in 1989 — has sold about 30,000 sets in total.
Can I just point out how much more satisfying it is to physically turn the pages and look something up than to punch it into a search engine? I know this all means faster turnaround and streamlined efficiency and whathaveyou, but honestly. Sometimes we all just need to hold a printed book.

That is my favorite piece of advice to live by. Our demons, scars, and anxieties; we don’t banish them, we manage...
