Woo I love a Jo interview. Please don’t be the same old same old tried and tested questions. Really looking forward to this, Jo interviews are what being a HP fan are all about (Still can’t stand Oprah though)

I agree that I’m quite nervous Oprah won’t ask anything interesting. I realize she’s not the sort of Harry Potter fan we are and won’t be asking stuff we would ask, but I pray she took her time with Jo to make a very good interview that stands out among the many others Jo has given.

I’m really upset because I’ve got a driving lesson and can’t see it. I’ve tried to get a videotape for it but I’m not sure anyone in my family can remember how to use a VCR (I certainly can’t. Oh dear.) So… if anyone is able to get it onto Youtube I will give you a Youtube thumbs-up and probably jump up and down a bit. I want to see my favorite author on Oprah!

I can’t wait to see how it turns out. We’ve seen our share of interviews where they ask the same old tired question and others where you just want to shoot the host for asking such dumb questions. I don’t watch Oprah but it seems that she’s good at what she does (or else she wouldn’t be on this long) so I’m hoping it’ll be a good show.

@ratorr2 — I know! If anyone says “so… d’you think you’ll write any more Harry Potter books?” there will be much headdesking in order.
