Children, Feeble-Minded Adults, Cannot Get Enough 'Harry Potter'

Didja finish Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows yet? Didja? Didja? If you didn't, and you actually care, we'd advise staying away from our Friday Week in Review post, which contains some vital spoilers in the comments, including the revelation that Voldemort "goes both ways."

Meanwhile, everyone in the world apparently owns a copy of the book by now: Scholastic published a record 12 million copies for the book's first printing; estimates show that 8.3 million of those sold, another record. Well, you know, good for them. We give up. If you want to read more, there's plenty here; we'll be in the corner with our copy of Michael Ondaatje's Divisadero, feeling smug and superior.
