Subject: RE: BS: Harry Potter: Good or Bad Witch part II
Just noticed today that my ex-employers (Hewlett-Packard) have jumped on the bandwagon. Now then - how cheap is that shot? HP I ask you? I think I'll start a series of books about a teenage Wizard called Ian Bartholemew Martin. Do you think I'll get any sponsors???

I have also just finished the last book. I loved the way JK Rowling has used very sensationalist press that have vilified her works in certain quarters to get a good laugh. Think about Rita Skeeter reporting for the Mid West Christian Gazette (Apologies if there really is one!). Set me off giggling anyway.

Ah well. Small things, small minds and all that;-)

Luv and peas to all
