Don’t you think that Jo herself should have done the drawings for Harry Potter?! That would have been amazing. :)

You know the video of the Question and Answer sesionwith Auther Lavine in Leaky’s idea galleries from today, Is that Melissa who asked “Which of the tales are your favorite” and “Why”?

It sounded sooo much like her!

I pre-ordered mine from walmart, and it was on my front porch when I got home today. It was a good surprise, usually nothing comes a day early for me. I love the drawings that she did in it.

I’ve been saving for the collectors edition since I found out it was available. I was tossing my ideas around, but I just ordered it (Figures, an hour away from the release is my style lol jk) Anyway, quite a chunk of money, but I don’t think I’ll regret it at all.

I was at the event this morning at the NYPL. Levine compared Rowling’s stories in Tales of Beedle the Bard to the stories of the Brothers Grimm and other fairy tale writers. I spoke to experts about it, comparing what Levine said about the Beedle tales to what experts say about fairy tales. I wrote about it here: http://blogs.journalism.cuny.edu/interactivefundamentals/2008/12/03/modern-day-fairytales/
