I hope you don’t mind if I call you Jo. JK seems a tad contrived.
Now, Jo, I like a good read and I’ve really enjoyed all the Harry Potters. I’m not quite ordering ahead of publishing at Amazon, but I the last couple have found their way into my supermarket trolley within the first day or so.
So I was really looking forward to getting back into Harry’s slightly sweaty teenage world this week.
My problem is that I’ve obviously pickled a few braincells in Merlot – or Riesling actually – since the Half-blood Prince. I just can’t remember who all these people are and which side they are on. It’s even more baffling because there are loads of rules and spells and magic things which each have their own rules to remember.
Jo, I know this is the last one, but do you think you could produce a grown-up’s guide to who’s who and why? It could be a bit like that think Jilly cooper does with her bonkbusters only without the sex.
PS Pop in for a cauldron of Chablis if you’re passing.
PPS On the subject of ordering the book, could you put a curse on that dreadful expression “pre-order”? Things are either ordered or they’re not.
