"4. What would Amortentia smell like to you?
A) You know when you wake up in the morning and someone else is making you breakfast? That.
B) Fried food at a state fair.
C) The inexplicable smell of Fruit Loops when there are no Fruit Loops in sight.
D) The smell of a campfire."


The imminent release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has...

As we gear up for Saturday night's #CursedChild "Midnight to Magic" release party (at all B&N stores nationwide!), a lifelong HP fan explains why Millennials love Harry Potter: "Spend your childhood facing down He Who Must Not Be Named and Dolores Umbridge, and it’s only natural you’ll strive to make the world a better place." 
"I think Nathan's a Hufflepuff," my sister texted me one day. I winced. How was that going to work? She's a Ravenclaw. Can a Ravenclaw even date a Hufflepuff? "That's hilarious," I replied. "Get him sorted. We must have answers." A few days later sh

"Over the years, science fiction and fantasy have provided something of a guide to the pitfalls and dangers associated with traveling through time. Here, for your edification, are 10 suggestions for what to definitely not do, should you happen upon a TARDIS on your way home from work."
We all have a wishlist of things we'd do if time travel were possible. It's a common human fantasy: who wouldn't want the ability to wander through history, and, if you're exceptionally careful about it, even change it? But with great temporal power comes great temporal responsib

"If you don’t feel like shelling out for tickets to this year’s slate of movies, why not enjoy a book of a similar flavor? These read-alikes are guaranteed to satisfy, and they’ll keep you occupied for a lot more than the two-hour runtime of most big-screen flicks. Pop some popcorn, silence your cell phone, and enjoy."
Summer is the season of big movies, from blow-up-the-White-House blockbusters, to family-friendly animation, to gross-out, screwball comedies that are heavy on celebrity cameos and bodily fluids. But if you don't feel like shelling out for tickets to this year's slate of movies, why not en

I love HP but it ended. I hope this isn't another Max Ride thing where there's mixed signals about the ending line. How much can my heart take?

At B&N Readouts, Liane Moriarty's "Truly, Madly, Guilty" (Flatiron Books) brings to life the wicked secrets of neighbors meeting at a seemingly ordinary backyard party: http://spr.ly/6266BLJZ4

"Clementine wondered if Tiffany had some experience in the hospitality field. She almost had one arm folded behind her back as she bent at the waist and poured drinks.

From where Clementine sat in the long, low cabana, she could see her daughters playing on a long rectangle of grass next to a gazebo with ornate columns and a wrought-iron dome. They were throwing a tennis ball for the little dog. Ruby had the ball at the moment and she was holding it up high above her head, while the dog, taut and trembling with anticipation, sat in front of her, poised to spring.

'You must tell Dakota to let us know when she gets sick of looking after the girls,' said Clementine to Tiffany, although she hoped it wouldn’t be anytime soon.

'She’s having a great time with them,' said Tiffany. 'You just relax and enjoy the view of the Trevi Fountain there.' She nodded at the largest, most extravagant fountain, a monolithic creation built like a wedding cake with winged angels holding uplifted hands as if to sing, except they spurted great crisscrossing arcs of water from their mouths. 'That’s what my sisters call it...'

“I think it’s incredible,” said Clementine.

“No pool?” asked Sam, who had grown up splashing about in a backyard aboveground pool with his brothers and sister. “You’ve got enough room for one.”

Leading into this Saturday's #BNHP midnight release party for #CursedChild, Sparknotes confirms all we'd hoped for a 🌟different🌟 Rowling tale: "It's got magical creatures, property damage so extensive it would make even the Avengers flinch, and possibly the answer to the question "Can Muggles do Side-Along Apparition?"
Over the weekend, Eddie Redmayne attended San Diego Comic-Con and...

"This time, he gave in to the laughter.
Great. Now she had him laughing at her.
Except that when he looked at her, there was nothing mocking in his gaze, and he was so devastatingly focused on her that she forgot to be annoyed.
As they stared at each other, the humor faded away to a slight, sexy smile. 'Come on, Honor. Where do you go in the middle of the night, and what difference does it make if Lexie tells anyone?'
No way would she go into detail with him, but this time she couldn’t think of an excuse to dodge out."

"Some say that all religions are simply different hands pointing at the same truth. I don’t know if that’s true. I’m still countless miles away from Enlightenment. But the thing I do know is that 'Life is so very difficult. How can we be anything but kind?”
Anyone following the news knows that religious intolerance is once again ascendant. And when sweeping generalizations are made about faith communities, the human stories of those whose grew up in various religious traditions are erased. Today, we're celebrating those human stories. The diversi

Hoober Doober, I enjpy free thinkers, and you seem to be one.  I don't personally think Most of Us, or most people, really ever get What we deserve, good or bad. You know people say they believe in Karma etc. But I have seen evil, ruthless people prevail, live very long lives with no physical, or outside hindrance or infirmity. Fate never got back at them. And I have seen great, loving, kind people get killed, slaughtered etc. And you know about such things as A veteran. Thank you for Your Service by the way. My brother was in Nam in 1968. I was 10 he was 19..he made it. But the crap I used to pull, I should have been dead, or killed, or most certainly in prison, for things having to do "with practicing Medicine without a licensing and having my own pharmacy" if you get my drift. Thanks my friend, as I say, I like your takes.
