Not that we need an excuse,

but we'll give you four anyway...

1) We were feeling a little nostalgia for the excitement that the release of a new Harry book (especially Deathly Hallows) whipped up in the House of Onion. Then we remembered that the Half-blood Prince movie is mere weeks away from release, so we got excited all over again. There will be KISSING. And SAD THINGS. And RON WEASLEY. Bring it ON.

2) John Green is coming to town for the Reading Matters conference later this week (along with a host of other fabulous authors), a perfect excuse to revisit our favourite bits of his and his brother Hank's made-of-awesome Brotherhood 2.0 .

3) 'Hermione' belongs on our list of surprisingly pronunciated (new word for the occasion) words.

4) As does 'accio', apparently - as Hank Green discovered.

So without further ado or excuse here is Hank Green's 'Accio, Deathly Hallows' which appeared on the interwebs on 18 July 2007, just days before the (embargoed) release date of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows on 21 July 2007.
