I just read, on Ed Champion, that the last Harry Potter book will be (get this) 784 pages long, with a print run of (get this) 12 milllllllion.
Aside from his point about the environment (though the book will be printed on recycled paper)…why can’t someone edit J.K. Rowling?! Shouldn’t this be a shorter book, or perhaps 2 books?
On second thought, in this modern day and age when readers are on the decline, it makes me hopeful to think that millions (12 million) of readers will willingly buy a 784 page book and sit down to read it. I’ll be included in that number, because I am a Harry Potter fan.
