I would love reading another book relatedto Harry Potter. I don't think there should be another story from his point of view. Maybe a book from nobody's point of view would be better, one that tells what's going on without having a main character.

I would really like a book from ppeves point of view tell what went on in the castle after the 7th book. That would be interesting, not to mention funny.

I would also like to see from the perspective of students from other houses. All we know is- Ravenclaws are smart, Hufflepuffs are nice, Slytherins are evil, and Gryffindor is the source of all awesomeness.

honestly, i would love it if j.k. rowling wrote more books in general. it doesn't have to be harry potter related at all, i would just like to see a different side of her as an author.

but an 8th book would be cool too!

TEN YEARS?

I can't wait that long. Most likely they would write about the kids of Harry, Ginny, Hermoine, and Ron... wouldn't it have to be a new story?

B) I think it would be boring if the story was based a long time ago...

I never have been one to like History. <_<

A collection of Stories from each house would be nice too.

Hey Nicole,
When the person wrote at the beginning of the post that it wont be published, they were looking at that back in 2007. When she hand-wrote the 8 copies, she had originally intended not to publish it, but the cry from the fans pushed her to publish it. Hope this helps!

On my own note: I would die for anything HP related. I would be most happy if it focuses on Harry in some way, any way, but it doesnt have to be about just him. I would take anything. Especially Next gen. I have told people the world over that I would cut off a pinkie if that is what JK required to write another book about HP. I would also go nuts for a Teddy story! Teddy/Victoire, or Teddy/Harry relationship, both would be great outlets. I just need something! 10 Years is much too long!
:P

Like most people, I love the Harry Potter books. They are brilliant! But I don't think it would be a good idea to write another one. I feel like Harry Potter's story has already been written.

I really don't think an eighth book would really do much for me. I actually would prefer a story on the founders or on James and Lily. Or even a different generation, as in several different view points on the different houses and such.

I would love to have the story of James, Albus, Lily, and the rest, but I think it would be really cool also to find out what happened to other riends, or DA members. Obviously Neville is now the Herbology Professor, but what about Ernie MacMillan and Luna Lovegood, etc? Especially Luna! She was one of my favorite characters!!!

Id like loads a mini series, one about the marauders and their years at hogwarts, one about the founding and one about the next generations adventures. I think this'd be really good!

Sorry, Violet, I hadn't read your post when I posted mine, it was honestly my own idea

I think the story of Harry Potter has been told, so an eighth book wouldn't be a good idea. I do like the idea about her writing text books though. I'd buy those.

I would also prefer a Founders or Marauders story over just another book. I suppose Next Generation might be interesting, but I'd like just a random generation over that. Maybe way back to years before Riddle was born, so no Voldemort and maybe Slytherins wouldn't have to be just 'evil'. The magical setting of the castle and everything would make portraying the era much easier, certainly; I'm sort of pulling of that idea. XD

I would like a book featuring the children of the main characters but also feature some of the adult lives of the main characters and like bounce back between their lives and the lives of their children at Hogwarts. Since 10 years from Dec 2007 when this post was posted is now only about 8 years away we'll see. An eighth book would be awesome. My mom and my grandma also read the books after I read them and so it spans all ages and I hope to someday share them with my children.

I agree with a lot of you here - a new series on the founders or the generation before Harry would be excellent. I would love to know the origins of the Order of the Phoenix, the background of the Black family tree and its various fallings-out. There are so many subjects in the HP universe that Ms. Rowling could probe, she could keep herself and us busy for the rest of her life.

I sincerely hope she expands the world that is Harry Potter. I for one would be a sponge for anything she writes on the subject.

:)

I most certainly would buy any other books she wrote. On that note, I also admit Rowling should not make any more from the mainstream series; but alas those that books mentioned in the series, such as how she's written Quidditch Through the Ages, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and Beedle the Bard. Continuing with these smaller stories in sets would be fabulous, and considering it'd also result in her doing good deeds anyway. Assuming she continued to use these smaller books for charity funds.

Also true that, no book series will ever catch up to Harry Potters.

As for the Marauders, I can see them possibly coming around... But I say it's a VERY big 50/50 chance. It either will happen or it won't.

I'd definitely enjoy textbooks, too. All the more to make Harry Potter's universe feel more real to me.. I appreciate that feeling.

I wish she would make a book on Harry's life as a grownup, or the lives of his children at hogwarts.

Me too. It would be so much fun reading what Hogwarts students read. It would make my life of being a Harry Potter fan complete. I'd really pick up a copy of Ancient Runes Made Easy or Unfogging the Future.

In a J.K.Rowling documentary I saw, it seems she is indeed writing another book although it's nothing HP related. She wants to take her time on it without the deadlines etc that HP had, so it may be a while before she reconsiders the idea of another HP book. Although she did say (in a moment of weakness) as she summed up the family trees of the future generation, she stated that all the information on them and events in her head that occured could fill another book. Then she considers it and states that she's done with Harry Potter; his story is told.

The next generation would be really cool to read but personally I would prefer one of the marauder's years. Honestly I would much rather one told from Snape's point of view or Lily's since I can't stand James and a book centering on him would drive me insane, although sadly I would still read it being the HP fan that I am. However strange it may be to see Sirius, Snape, Voldemort, James, Lily, Remus etc after all the events that occured in the Deathly Hallows. But all the same, it would be quite interesting I would say. Slytherin with a bad home life? Couragious, name-calling girl who hates Potter with a passion? A "bookworm" who becomes a werewolf each month and has to hide it from his friends until they find out? a Gryffindor againstwith pure-blodded Slytherin family? ETC. Not to mention how cool it would be to see them start as nervous, young first-years progressing into who they are and making the decisions that shaped their lives. And the first Voldemort raising to power. Yeah, it would certainly be awesome and has soo much protential. But...that wouldn't be a book would it? Something like that would have to be another series. I don't think J.K will be up for that anytime soon. In ten years? Well...maybe.

If it is to be only one book unreleated to the actual HP timeline (such as the future generation or the marauders etc) than is there really any way to tell such a Hogwarts story with only one book?
Ravenclaw may be smarter, Gryffindor may be braver and Hufflepuff may show higher loyalty to their friends...but all three seem to look at Slytherin as the odd one out. It is for that reason we're the strongest because we look after our own and will stand above such reputation-driven judgements. That is our ambition as a whole.

We may not be smarter but we're still cunning. We may not be heroes but we suceed. We may not be the most trustworthy but we stand by those worthy in our eyes.

The bottom line: a Slytherin bites harder.
