I don't read Harry Potters when they come out. I read them just before the film comes out. I'm a bit behind and powering through HP and the Order of the Phoenix so I can go to the already-released movie, perhaps tomorrow if I read fast.
Today set up a debate this morning beteen Will Self ('My nine year old was bored by the book') and John Sutherland who was more encouraging about it ('I need the dictionary when I read Will Self').
In HP5 we get this... ''I listen Ron,' said Hermione, with a touch of asperity.' Well I had to look it up. Did you? Shan't be trying any Will Self for the moment.
Nice to hear Evan Davis on Today. He cool.
