There are so many things showing up on my dash about the new HP-related books and every other comment has someone saying “IT’S NOT THREE NEW HP BOOKS, YOU GUYS, IT’S THREE NEW BOOKS THAT ARE IN THE HARRY POTTER CANON.”
Yes, thank you, person-who-wants-to-ruin-my-joy. I do know how to read. That doesn’t mean I’m any LESS excited about this.
Bloomsbury, the publisher of the “Harry Potter” series by author JK Rowling, also said it was counting on a new Rowling three-book box set tied into the Potter series, and a non-fiction account of spies in World War II to support sales in the coming year. [x]
I get that the three-book box set probably WON’T be about Harry and his friends. It will probably be a storybook like The Tales of Beetle the Bard, or a more informational textbook, like Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them or whatever. Either way, have you ever READ The Tales? Because it’s interesting as hell. Have you read Fantastic Beasts? Because it’s hilarious. It’s annotated with Harry, Hermione, and Ron’s notes and it’s adorable. I don’t care if the three books are directly about Harry’s life or or just part of the HP Canon. I’m excited either way and please stop bursting everyone’s happiness.
This is a GOOD THING.
