Bloomsbury Publishing has launched a new poll to find out which Harry Potter characters fans would pick as their favorite via this link.  Starting today, fans may pick from a list of forty characters which wizard, Muggle, or creature is their favorite character from throughout author J. K. Rowing's series.  Fans will also be able to write in your favorite if they are not listed.  The Harry Potter author herself has offered her choice for favorite character, as well.  Ms Rowling relates:

"Harry, although I believe I am unusual in this, Ron is generally more popular (I love him too, though) Now that I have finished writing the books, the character I would most like to meet for dinner is Dumbledore.  We would have a lot to discuss, and I would  love his advice; I think that everyone would like a Dumbledore in their lives."
The poll opens on Monday, May 16, 2011 and runs until Friday, August 26 2011. The winning character will be announced on Tuesday, August 30, 2011 on the UK Harry Potter Facebook page.

Happy voting!

Draco Malfoy is the best :) For all who say he’s evil i have something to tell you
He was raised my Lucius Malfoy, think about it, if you were raised by Lucius how might u act around a person like harry potter, he was raised by evil and thats all he knows, he could b harry’s best friend for all we know if Lucius wasn’t evil. Keep that in mind :)

Neville. The most endearing… My vote.

But THE KEY to it all is Severus Snape!

So many good choices…

It was tough! I love Harry, but Ron is just amazing, Hermione is like my soul-sister, and I’m definatley a Ginny, Fred & George thought me how to laugh, Snape gave me lots to think about, the marauders are incredible, I love and mourn Dobby, Luna is soooo fun to read about and so is Viktor Krum. Ultimately I choose Dumbledore :)

DRACO, DRACO, DRACO, DRACO!!! I <3 <3 <3 him! It was a hard choice between him and Luna Lovegood though. I love them equally, but as a huge fangirl, I had to vote for my favourite Slytherin! Ugh, I hate Ginny.

Guess That Book

"Mom?" he whispered. "Dad?" They just looked at him, smiling. And slowly, Harry looked into the faces of the other people in the mirror, and saw other pairs of green eyes like his, other noses like his, even a little old man who looked as though he had Ha
