Bookbits for 18 February 2016

  • Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play posterWell, Bookbit #1 is of course that an 8th Harry Potter book is forthcoming, and soon, too!  It’s not a “book”book, really, it’s the script of the upcoming play put into book form but that hasn’t stopped a single Muggle heart from beating faster.  As soon as we have more details, and a way for you to reserve a copy, we will let you know!
  • Quiz!  Oops, Valentine’s Day has been and gone, but it’s still a lot of fun to take the Guardian’s Declarations of Love in Literature quiz.  I actually did quite well: 9/12.  Can you beat me?
  • Weasley Clock (image: Trey Bagley)How to make a Weasley clock.  It’s a bit tricky, but thankfully the instructions are illustrated… O.o  (Image: Trey Bagley)
  • And finally: a Misery’s Return mock-up for the Stephen King fans.  🙂  I have to say, Mr. King rather resembles Mr. Lowe, don’t you agree?  (For the book nerds: this is the “second” (inside) cover to a paperback edition of Misery – but I can’t recover from which edition, sorry!):
