Rowling could always start a series about Dumbledore's early days. My predictions for the next book include Harry fighting his own parents after Valdemore brings them back from the dead. And I think Harry will end up as the professor of the dark arts at Hogwarts. I'll probably be wrong. It won't be the first time.

Do I detect just a smidgen of envy and sour grapes? In my opinion Rowling deserves every penny she has made from the contents of her mind and imagination and skill and ability to entertain. And who knows how many children in future will have learned to take pleasure from books because of her.

In a day when being good at hitting a ball around on grass or bouncing a ball on a wooden floor or throwing a ball from one end of a field to the other can garner millions of bucks I admire cerebral achievement.

I'm with you, Ebbie. There's a green-eyed monster hanging over this thread. I applaud Rowling for creating a wonderful series that created a frenzy over READING. Anyone who could inspire children to line up around the block at bookstores on several continents to grab the first copies of a book is the most powerful wizard on the planet.

I can't wait to read the new book. Rowling's characters and descriptions are imaginative, humorous and delightful. Apparently she had the basic plot-line of the series more or less worked out from the beginning.

Rowling can write shopping lists for the rest of her life, as far as I'm concerned. However, a persn with such abundant creativivity usually can't stanch the flow. Something else will follow. Hopefully her readers won't typecast her and insist on more of the same if she wants to go in different directions.

I am also looking forward to the seventh book.

Since I don't have a life, I'll share my hopes for the last book:

I hope she doesn't pull a St. Elsewhere or Dallas (i.e. all of the events of the series were in the imagination of the one-year-old Harry, whose parents are very much alive, or were a dream) or a Douglas Adams (i.e. kill off Harry as a means of ensuring that she never has to write another Harry Potter book.) If she kills off Harry because she feels the story demands it, that's a different situation.

Most of all, for my daughter's sake, I hope she doesn't kill off Hermione.

Killing off your main character as a means of escaping from a wildly popular series would be nothing new.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle grew to hate Sherlock Holmes, and killed him off in order to end the series. There was so much pressure exerted on him that he had to resuscitate Holmes (I forget just how) and go on with the series.

Rowling is still young. It will be interesting to see if she will start another series with a different character, one that may become as popular and as much a part of the culture as the Harry Potter series.

I expect there have been writers who have been able to carry that off but I don't think it is common.

Usually cloth bound, hard back covers; high grade, full rag paper with gilt edges, hand sewn binding and a really good bit of PR make 'deluxe' editions. You can count on the pages not to fall out at the first reading.

When I worked in the library, I got sick of new hardbacks falling apart after only a couple of reads.

Another thing you should know about the coming book (and my copy is on order):

Harry walks in as Ron is "forcing himself" on Hermione. Being a gentleman, Harry is torn between walking away from such a tender scene and helping Hermione but offending Ron (he doesn't consider helping Ron and offending Hermione). Instead, Harry performs a rather complicated spell and finishes by shouting "Kretuttok!" But instead of simply making Ron "soft" Harry also softens everything for 20 kilometers around -- Hogwarts itself is turned into a pile of semi-solid jelly. This makes it quite easy for The Dark Lord to take over and ensconce his minions in the White House and Number 10 Downing Street, to name but two places they become ensconced.

Harry, Ron, and Hermione are all that survive of Hogwarts and become a singing group doing, of course, soft rock.

Yes, and Amazon.com has said it will sell the book for about $20. They also said they don't mind taking a loss on it because they're hoping people will order other books as well. I think it's a wonderful marketing concept that other would do well to copy. As for the actual final book, I really can't speculate about it. As others have mentioned, I think Rowling deserves every penny. I only wish I had half of her imagination and attention to details. The ability to create a whole world and inhabit it with such complex characters. I've said on other sites that I wish they could've done the movies consecutively as the Lord of the Rings series were done. But, since there's seven books, and she's only finishing the last, that wasn't even a possibility. What might've helped the series is if they could've at least had the same director, but maybe there were creative differences. I wish Dumbledore wasn't killed either, but who knows...maybe a resurrection spell? As for Snape, Alan Rickman is a marvelous choice...greasy hair and all...and I think he's just pure evil. I've read the books, seen the movies, and can't wait, but don't want HP and friends to die. I've been to the Leaky Cauldron, MuggleNet, and Potterish.com. Everyone's got an opinion or point of view. I know from what I've seen that three key characters are going to, well, you know. BTW, jkrowling.com is a nice site, too. She restored my desire to read more than just magazines and newspapers. Thanks, JK!

I agree with Ebbie too. Wonderful to be aware, in your own lifetime, that you are up there with the classic childrens writers like A A Milne, Kenneth Graham etc. She deserves the money she earns much more than some of the company directors and politicians who get large amounts.

I think she'll probably write something completely different after this. With such a gift, why continue with 'sequels' and tie yourself down by staying in the same area?

I've never believed that Dumbledore was really dead and I don't believe that Snape is on the dark side either. Dumbledore wouldn't have been that badly mistaken and he had absolute faith in Snape.

I hope she doesn't kill Harry; I don't think that would be a very good ending. Though one of the professors is a ghost isn't he? Binns is it?

Can't wait!!!

My best ever teaching assignment was working as a tutor on the film set for the second film .... and the best day was when we watched Alan Rickman and the other actors in the Duelling Club scene. Rickman is the most wonderful actor - really helpful and friendly before the cameras started rolling, assisting the young Draco with his acting, and then becoming nasty old Snape (complete with power) as soon as the scene started. That evening I saw him in the West End in a Noel Coward play, as a complete contrast.   What a man ...*swoon* ...He also has a degree of charisma that affects every female within a fifty yard radius. I wasn't the only one with wobbly knees!

It is repeatedly stated that in Harry's world once you're dead you stay dead (with the exceptions of returning as a ghost or to in habit a magical painting).

Harry, Ginny, MacGonnigle, Malfoy, Mr Weasley, and Voldemort will all die with Longbottom as the ultimate hero. Snape will become headmaster of Hogwarts. Bill will marry Tonks, Ron and Hermione will get off with each other.

I agree with Lynne. I don't think Dumbledore died. The only person who could stand up to Voldemort was Dumbledore and Voldemort was afraid of him. With him 'dead' it gives the opportunity for Voldemort to come into the open which is exactly what has to happen if Harry and friends can overcome him. Yes, Snape is really a goody too. All the signs are there, you just have to look for them.

I'm with Nigel - Snape's working from the inside, same as he did the time before.

I also suspect that Harry *won't* be killing Voldemort. The prophecy is that one kills the other, but it doesn't say which. My money's on Voldemort killing Harry, and some curse put on Snape killing him as a result of Voldemort's death. Who actually does kill Voldemort, I dunno - maybe Snape, or maybe even Draco?

I'm also waiting for the fact that Ginny Weasley's a seventh child to come into play somewhere, although that might just be a red herring.

Can't powerful wizards like Dumbledore make contingency plans that will allow them to come back to life? I thought the whole phoenix thing was implying that, but then I've been out of the loop for a couple of books.

I like Snape a lot, so I hope he's one of the good guys. Alan Rickman playing him in the movie versions helps quite a bit, too, because Alan Rickman is awesome.

Book 7 Highlights:

1. Dumbledore comes back, not being really dead, looks around at the rest of the characters, exclaims "What a bunch of twits and fools!" and goes over the join his twin brother, Tom Riddle.

2. Snape, being Harry biological father (see above), realizes the power that a child of Harry and Hermione would have and puts a compulsion spell on them (or at least that's what they claim when McGonagle catches them).

3. Ron "comes out of the closet" holding hands with Neville Longbottom.

4. Hagrid is named as the new Head of Hogwarts and immediately has all the floors reinforced and the ceilings raised, necessitating an immediate increase in tuition. As a result, no one can afford the school any longer and all the students transfer to the University of Louvain and study interpretive theological dance.

5. Malfoy, Crabbe and Goyle go to law school and set up as junior partners in the firm of Dumbledore, Riddle, Crabbe and Goyle. The firm promptly sues the hell out of everybody, including Buckbeak.

I'm under a geas not to reveal the stunning conclusion, but from the foregoing you should be able to figure it out for yourself.
