Harry Potter: The Saga Continues

Swami was checking to see the ranking of his older son, Geoff's book on Amazon. [Kevin's book will not be out until 2008, so it is not yet available for pre-sale]. Geoff's book (C.C. Pyle's Amazing Foot Race: The True Story of the 1928 Coast-to-Coast Run Across America) is coming out July 10, and has been ranked as high as about 38,000. Inexplicably, another book, that does not come out until July 21, (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) is ranked #2 on Amazon. Go figure.

The Swami believes that it is possible that the ranking of Harry Potter is due in part to what may be the hype that this is the "final" book in the Potter series. Swami's unique sources have led him to believe that there may, in fact, be more books in the series, and that they are already in the planning stages.

Yes folks, within a couple of years you may be reading the 8th and 9th books in the series. Thats right, Harry Potter and the Weasel of Doom, followed by the long-awaited Harry Potter and the 80 Acres of Yaks. The latter book takes place in a veritable Eden and has a sub-plot wherein Harry attempts to train a Boston Terrier to herd yaks as he (Harry, you ninnies, not the Boston) continues to battle the forces of evil.

The actual "final" tome may be book ten, which follows a crotchety Harry as he becomes a door-to-door salesman in a British nudist colony. Rumor has it that Harry may already be in training for this job.

Meanwhile The Swami must round up the herd and head for the hills.

Swami, you always make me laugh out loud! Hmmmm, I wonder what books are #1, and #3-37,999 and what makes them more important than Swami's older son's book. I mean, what could be more important than Yak Herder's son's book???

Geoff is driving me crazy (but in a good way), checking Amazon every two minutes and reporting to me each time someone buys it.

Potter Shmotter. Your son's book is way ahead of mine, which is at #1,456,715 on amazon.com. On the other hand it's been out of print for 7 years. :-)
