  6. Librarian Job Posting Has Specific Harry Potter Requirements →

    Interesting responses on LJ's Facebook page. Is the job description  clever or playing into a tired stereotype?
    • Unfortunate stereotype. There aren’t many like her anymore.
    • Sounds as if they want a qualified librarian, but with actual people skills (in which Madam Pince was somewhat lacking).
    • In fairness, Madame Pince’s collection was far more dangerous than just “radical” ideas. They could explode, eat people. Or the spells in them, too advanced for most students, could ‘cause physical harm or death to the caster or others. If students wanted a forbidden spell, they should’ve done like Muggles and used the internet.

    As coeditors Linda Roghaar and Molly Wolf have illustrated in their books KnitLit and KnitLit (too) and as Interweave’s popular Jane Austen Knits attest, there are exponential pleasures when knitting and reading are combined.

    Neal Wyatt’s latest column will knock your socks off. And yes, Harry Potter fans, there’s a knitting book for you too!

Always weed horcruxes.

gawd, i hate it when ppl try to return horcruxes to the library, it’s really a hassel to have to run around tracking down magical objects to destroy them with and i would feel really irresponsible just sending them to the friends of the library, undestroyed, for the book sale.

  12. Before I begin my Defense of Draco, I’d like to make clear that we’re talking about post-Hallows Draco here. Because we’re not perverts. And because, frankly, nobody at Hogwarts made good boyfriend material during the war.

“I wanted to pay tribute to the series itself and to classic literature. I wanted to take those two things and fuse them together. In a way, the first Harry Potter cover should feel like Dickens.” -Kazu Kibuishi, A New Look for Harry Potter

    You failed to work in my two favorite HP giggle-inducers — “chamber of secrets” and “death stick.” (But hilarious nonetheless!)

    What a missed opportunity! I humbly apologize.
