More Harry Potter?

It seems my Harry Potter geekiness has yet to be properly discussed here! I won't completely bore you with it though, I willjust give you the highlights!

When I was 17, my best friend was reading a Harry Potter book on the train on the way to college.When I asked her why she was reading a kid's book, she replied "Because it's good." I laughed, read the back cover, laughed again and gave it back to her. What's weird is, I don't remember when I first picked up the Philosopher's Stone and got addicted, I just know that I was instantly hooked. What followed can only be described as an obsession - reading the books, analysing them, posting theories on forums and debating, watching the movies, buying the merchandise. You name it, I probably did it!

Only true Harry Potter fans can understand the depth of love I have for the characters, and the lady who created them, J.K Rowling. But today it was brought to my attention that there may be still be life in the Harry Potter series yet. It got me thinking about how this could even work when J.K Rowling made such an effort to tie up all the loose ends. More to the point, do we really want more Harry Potter? Loving the books is one thing, but it seemed as though the door had closed on that world and I am not entirely sure it's a good idea to re-open it. For more thoughts on this, please click here.
Are you a Harry Potter fan and would you like to see more books about him and his future? Please leave a comment and let me know!


  1. I think there is a ton of things she can write about in the HP world. Like Snape *rotfl* Seriously, I have faith that if Jo continues to write HP, it will be done properly. And the HP geek in me is rejoicing like mad!!!

  2. Lol, part of me wants it, but mostly I just think she should let them go :S
