Let me show you why!
Today is July 31st in our time zone, and it’s that time of the year again: Harry Potter’s birthday. In HP chronology, Harry is age 31 this year (his birthdate is 1980), five years before the epilogue at the end of Deathly Hallows (2026). For the sake of the people who haven’t read the series yet, or haven’t gotten to DH yet, I will spare the details that we can logically infer based on this timeline. For fellow HP fans, let’s just count back, shall we? :)
Today is also the birthday of JK Rowling, who turns 45 this year. Happy Birthday to the wonderful writer who created a magical universe for legions of readers all over the world.
This is going to be strange, two years overdue, but I was rooting around Jasper Fforde‘s (one of my favorite authors, in case you didn’t knw) website and I just found out I was among the picks for the Thursday Nextreme (Thursday Next X-treme) in 2009.
I remember visiting the site this year to “download” the TN6 special features, but I totally forgot about joining Nextreme!
