A Muggle at heart

I'm working on a book of my own: Harry Potter Is a Big Fat Idiot.
Think it'll sell?
Is it as funny as Stupid White Voldemort?
Uh oh -- it's Harry Potter backlash! Well, I won't play. I'll pick up the book someday, just not now. I never buy bestsellers when the hype is frantic.
Besides, I'm busy writing my own book. It's a cookbook. Working title: The Joy of Cooking Troll.
There are good reasons to avoid the crowds. And there's nothing particularly wrong with the Potter books, except that they don't float to the top of my want list.
I did buy one book yesterday: a biography of Condoleezza Rice. Go figure.
