You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. 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.

Re: 20 Questions

Hi, guys!  Sorry for going dark for awhile.  Real life has been busy!

 

27.  Do we see it in Ron's room?

28.  Do we see it in the kitchen?

29.  Do we see it outside?

30.  Is it something that the reader would believe has been at the Burrow all along but never mentioned before (like the wringer)?

Yes, it is the Puddlemere United sock!  I wonder who that belonged too; we were never told.

Re: 20 Questions

I guess it had to be Fred, George or Mr Weasley.  Percy's gone at that time and Bill and Charlie weren't in for the wedding.  Unless -- does a gouhl wear socks???????????

 

I'm thinking of a thing that's really not there.

1-7.   It is only mentioned in book 7.

   8.   No, it does not exist in the mind of a Lovegood. 

         I'm afraid my hint is leading you astray.  It really exists.  Don't make too much of it.  Perhaps it will be amusing when the answer is revealed :smileywink:
