Hogsmeadites? Hogsmeaders?

Apple has come out with a limited edition Harry Potter-themed iPod, complete with the audiobooks of the first six volumes and engraved on the back with the Hogwarts crest.

This reminds me: I would certainly count listening to a full audiobook as reading the full book (for the purposes of yesterday's ongoing poll). Reading braille by touch is reading. Listening to the full text is reading. But human senses are not such that there is an effective way to read by taste or smell.

I'm only in if they have a Ravenclaw version (because, despite the fact that all of our heroes in HP are Griffyndors, I'm a Ravenclaw and so is every other medievalist I know).

But I would actually buy an ipod (because I own no portable music system, not even a walkman) if they came out with a Granny Weatherwax or Sgt. Vimes version. Or Sandman or his lovely sister, Death. In any case, it needs to come with magical powers to get me to part with half a plane ticket to Europe's worth of geld.

For shame! That's HogSmeade, and HogwartS. And you call yourself a Harry Potter fan...

But seriously, that's pretty cool. :P

You're right. How embarassing.

Pity humans can't read scent-books (nasio?).That's the only way the classics of cat literature are available

*stares* I had never heard the siren song of the I-Pod. Until now...
