Oprah, Cormac and Harry Potter

Two fun book-related announcements today, already old news.

I thought this Tribune story did a great job of capturing how strange a pick Oprah's latest is. I'd actually been meaning to read the book but was girding myself up for a big bleak bummer. Are Oprah's fans ready? I'm thinking it will fare better than Faulkner did but not by a whole lot. (While she's at it, maybe Oprah can recommend last year's best film, The Children of Men, another bleak apocalyptic story.)

Also, the cover art for the last Harry Potter books were unveiled. The U.S. edition is pretty dull, but the U.K. children's edition cover inspired me to guess something: Gringotts?
