07/19/07 Open Phones and Harry Potter

Two shows in one blog post. At noon we'll have our monthly installment of open phones.  If you want to get your ideas for discussion in early, comment here and we'll see what you have to say before we go on the air! Then at one, we'll join in the frenzy of anticipation for the new Harry Potter book, which is going to be out at midnight on Friday.  I learned all about how closely guarded a secret this book is being kept until then when I looked into getting an advance review copy.  Turns out there's no such thing; I guess they don't need to worry about a lack of publicity.  So, it leaves us to speculate about what is going to happen in the last book.  We'll also hear some ideas about what you and your kids can read once you've exhausted the Harry Potter collection.  -Justin  Here's a list of books that were discussed today: Harry Potter Series Chronicles of Narnia Phillip Pullman’s books Lion Boy series Inheritance trilogy – Christopher Paolini Twilight and New Moon – Stephanie Myers Coraline – Gaiman Wizards Hall – Jane Yolen So you want to be a Wizard – Diane duane The Great Stalk and Company – Kipling The Omen – Terry Prachett Good Omens – Neil Gauman The House of the Scorpion – Nancy Farmer Mercedes Lackey - Tamora Pierce Bartimaeus Trilogy Lord of the Rings Trilogy Mike Lupica Matt Christopher The Dangerous Book for Boys The Spy Handbook The Redwall Series – Brian Jacques Enid Blyton’s books Discworld Series – Terry Pratchett Lloyd Alexander’s books
