What's this all about?

I started this blog the day after Jo Rowling announced the title of the seventh and final Harry Potter novel. I decided I wanted a place online to talk about this book, both before and after it comes out.

I've been a fan of Luna since we first met her on the Hogwarts Express in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. So I decided to use the name of her father's magazine for my blog. My screenname on various Harry Potter forums is Mrs. Lovegood (or MrsLovegood).

What I want to do here is post news and theories about Book 7. I may occasionally stray from that, but that's my basic focus. I can't wait for it to come out and I can't help but try to figure out things about it -- what will happen, etc.

I want to make a few predictions right here, right now. First, we will have a publication date for the book on or before Valentines' Day, 2007. Second, it will be published before Sept. 1st, 2007. Third, you know how the titles on the Scholastic editions all have a sort of metallic colored lettering for the Harry Potter part, and then the rest of the title is different, more part of the picture on the cover. Well, I believe and predict that the Harry Potter letters on the cover of the Scholastic edition of book 7 will be a red metallic color. I also wouldn't be surprised if there were a graveyard on the cover, or at least that one scene in the book takes place in a graveyard or cemetery.

I guess that's enough for now. I'll post more of my thoughts later. I hope anyone who visits will post in the comments, I'd love to hear from you.
