    Re: Does anyone else NOT want the 7th Harry Potter book to come out?

    You really think money hungry JK will end with book 7? Some spinoff will happen so she can get even more money.

    Come on, you think she's that bad?
    I wouldn't say she's money hungry. She created something that is very true to her and she wants things to stay that way. Luckily over time she's made more money than all of us put together here on MiceChat.

    I don't get the money hungry vibe at all from her. I think she's been almost maniacal about sticking to her ending from the beginning and the fact that book seven is the end of the road. She doens't need to work another day in her life, but I think we'll see something very different come from her in the next few years. Whether it is accepted by the same public that went nuts for Harry Potter is another matter. But you can bet that she won't be writing for money. She'll be pushing close to a billion by then and you can only spend so much...

    In any case, book seven is it for Harry Potter...with a small possibility that she might come out with some other lexicon type of thing for charity.

    i disagree wth you calling her money hungry

    if she were, why would she write TWO books and take no proceeds for them? she donated every bit to charity...not to mention, on writing the first book, she was tld "not to quit her day job". this fame and fortune was no way expected and she is handeling it with dignity...

    I can think of very few people who really deserve this sort of thing, and she is one of them,
    when she wrote the 1st book she was on welfare...for crying out loud, the woman deserves everything she has


    rant done

    i can't WAIT for the book! Squee!!!!

    I too am a little sad that it will all be over this Saturday. It's been one heck of a ride. But to steal a thought from something I read...." We are the Lucky ones, No other people will have to wait to find out what happens to HP and his friends. We are the ones who sit in mystery and anticipation, waiting for that final clock strike to hit midnight"

    She's actually made it quite clear that she will not make a spin-off. She's been hinting for years that she might do a Wizarding World encyclopedia type thing, again for charity.

    She's also made it quite clear that if she writes after that, it's whatever suits her fancy. She will not continue with the Harry Potter series at all.

    Whether those facts will change 25 years from now, is anyone's guess. Including hers.

    I liken it to Star Wars. From what I understand, it was a big deal when we, the audience, found out Darth Vader is Luke's father. It's kind of cliche now, but it was BIG news. I wouldn't know, I wasn't born. I still love the series though. And there's a whole new generation whose first Star Wars film was not A New Hope but A Phantom Menace! They learned who Anakin was before Darth Vader even made it into their realm of knowledge. And yet, they still love the complete series as much as those of us who knew Vader first.

    That's how I think a lot of kids/people will see Harry in the years to come. They'll love the series and find us old kooks crazy. "Why, in MY day, we had to wait YEARS between each year at Hogwarts and then SIX hours outside a store to get our hands on our copy at MIDNIGHT. And we had to READ it, too! Now you whippersnappers just have it uploaded straight to yer brain! You don't know how easy you have it!"

    Or something.

    Re: Does anyone else NOT want the 7th Harry Potter book to come out?

    We've decided to take all three girls Friday night to Borders. At first, I was taking my twelve year old, but now the six year old wants to give it a go.....so I'm dragging my husband along, so he can take her home if he needs to.

    It's their first and last Potter party.
