Eighth Day Books in Wichita, Kansas has The Lord of the Hallows: Christian Symbolism and Themes in J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter for sale in their online store at this address: http://eighthdaybooks.com/products/The_Lord_of_the_Hallows_Christian_Symbolism_and_Themes_in_J_K_Rowling_s_Harry_Potter-59232-0.html. I discovered this wonderful bookseller at Mythcon 41 last month and was delighted with their selection of books by and about C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, Charles Williams, George MacDonald, and even J. K. Rowling! (There’s a nice selection of books by “Hogwarts Professor” John Granger there, some of which were for sale at the Mythopoeic Society convention. Hmm, I wonder if John knows about this…) Eighth Day Books is a specialty store that primarily sells books on religion, philosophy, history, and literature, so if those topics interest you, please take the time to browse through their online catalog. 🙂
Those of you who know me or visit this blog regularly probably know that beisdes discussing the “deeper meaning” of the Harry Potter series with various Potter Pundits, my other favorite topic of discussion in the fandom is the Ron/Hermione pairing. I found this cute tumblr blog today which has lots of photos of and quotations about my favorite couple: http://omgronandhermione.tumblr.com/ If anyone knows of any other blogs like this one, please let me know. I’m slightly obsessed with Harry’s devoted sidekicks. 😉
Besides adding that R/Hr site to my blogroll, I also added the Hallows News blog to my list. You can visit it at http://hallowsnews.wordpress.com/ for Deathly Hallows movie news and other information about the Harry Potter fandom. Two other fandom news blogs that I enjoy are “Confessions of a Grown-up Fangirl” by Hanako M. Ricks, and the Hollywood News Harry Potter Blog. (Hanako is one of the bloggers there also.) Please see the sidebar for links. Of course, I’ll be posting new movie photos, spoilers, reviews, and other news about the film here as well.
