Knowing that many are still reading the book, we’ve found Shell Cottage to go to and post updates and thoughts and other such things on the new book by J.K. Rowling. It’s brand new and basically a place to go to while the reading continues. It’s Spoiler City Central, so go there only when you are finished with the book to avoid the unveiling of the surprises (including where Shell Cottage gets its name). You will see that we’re working through the Christian themes of love, sacrifice, resurrection, transformation, and redemption. We will also find the literary themes explored – as well as a video or two (or three) that we find at YouTube. Looks like we were not the only ones posting YouTube videos on the night of the book’s release – there are literally videos made all over the world now up on YouTube that were made that night or in the days that followed.
We have favorite places to visit and some of the postings we make at those places will also be posted at Shell Cottage. Among our favorites is HogwartsProfessor and The Leaky Cauldron’s forums (called the Leaky Lounge) and Sword of Gryffindor, as well as HP Progs. We know that many will be writing essays and creating artwork and ones that catch our eye will also find their way to Shell Cottage.
That way we can still keep an eye on the canons here. One never knows when those canons are about to blow.
NOTE: For those who did catch the videos (and they really are more podcasts than videos since the videos look like I was actually feeling by midnight that night) – “Lily” and “James” did indeed have a baby boy yesterday. Congratulations to Lief and Meghan! And to Joshua – who loved his mother so much he let her go the party and get her book before he made his debut.
