- J. K. Rowling: I said to Arthur, my American editor - we had an interesting conversation during the editing of seven - the moment when Harry takes Draco's wand, Arthur said, God, that's the moment when the ownership of the Elder wand is actually transferred? And I said, that's right. He said, shouldn't that be a bit more dramatic? And I said, no, not at all, the reverse. I said to Arthur, I think it really puts the elaborate, grandiose plans of Dumbledore and Voldemort in their place. That actually the history of the wizarding world hinged on two teenage boys wrestling with each other. They weren't even using magic. It became an ugly little corner tussle for the possession of wands. And I really liked that - that very human moment, as opposed to these two wizards who were twitching strings and manipulating and implanting information and husbanding information and guarding information, you know? Ultimately it just came down to that, a little scuffle and fistfight in the corner and pulling a wand away.

You can tell a lot about someone by the music they listen to. Hit shuffle in your iPod/iPhone/iTunes/media player and write down the first 10 songs.
For the19thhistory, whose depth of passion about music regularly makes me jealous.
- "Native America," Carbon Leaf
- "Help," The Beatles
- "Blue Christmas," Elvis Presley (Roughly 10 percent of the songs on my iTunes are Christmas music, and I am gleefully unashamed.)
- "Muckalee Creek Water," Luke Bryan (And 40 percent of my songs are country.)
- "Feast of Starlight," Howard Shore (From The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug soundtrack.)
- "Larger Than Life," Backstreet Boys (One of the shining moments of my life is getting the chance to go see the Backstreet Boys at age 19. Childhood dream fulfilled.)
- "Rain or Shine," Matthew Perryman Jones
- "Digital Getdown," N Sync (Whoa another childhood throwback here.)
- "I’m a Keeper," The Band Perry
- "Goin’ Back to Hogwarts," A Very Potter Musical
