In Which JK Rowling’s THE CASUAL VACANCY Freaks Me Out a Little

Hello my dear LifeBits Readers! Yesterday a Very Big Thing transpired in the literary world. JK Rowling (choirs of angels singing), author of the delightfully creative and slightly whacked-out Harry Potter series, released a new book into the world: THE CASUAL VACANCY.

I've only read reviews. But I'm not sure what to think about what I read.

No, actually I AM sure what to think about it. So sure in fact that I blogged about it HERE on Challenging the Gnome. I'd love to know your thoughts on the matter–whether you've read the book. Whether the reviews make you more likely or less likely to read it. And what you think about JK's complete departure in tone and sensibility from the HP series.

So for this Friday, I invite you to pop over to the Gnomes blog, read my post, and let me know what your feelings are. (Once again, you'll find it here. And here. And here. In case you were wondering.)

Have a wonderful weekend, my friends!

I have managed to keep the same husband for nearly three decades, and the same four children for almost that long - although one or two of them say it has been much longer. I have been writing since I learned to hold a pencil, and trying to make people laugh even longer. I hope to do some good in the world before I go the way of it. And if not, I'd better at least get to visit Ireland.
