I am all for reassurances, but how stupid do people think the world is.
JK Rowling appeared at a convention on the weekend and announced that...
wait for it...
Harry Potter will survive up to the seventh book.
I'm stunned. I would never have guessed that!
The Yahoo News gives a little bit more info, but it was the info that Harry would survive the 6th book so that the 7th could still be called 'Harry Potter and the whosit of whatsit' that had TV Guide interested.
