Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

oops.  There's no need to use quotes around "it", though.  It is made of solid matter.  And, now that I think about it, he might have used it in one of the Pensieve scenes in that last book.

Re: 20 Questions

14. Is this an everyday kind of spell? By this I mean is it a spell that someone would use to tidy up something? (ex. Would Molly Weasley use the spell?)

15. Is it a silly spell that is meant for jokes? (ex. would Fred or George use the spell?)
