At the Nicholas Library, we don’t believe in Valentine’s Day – we believe in LIBRARY LOVERS DAY! We’ve started the new year with a display of books about lurve. And why not go on a blind date with a book? Choose one of our pretty pink and purple parcels of mystery and see if you’re a perfect match!
“JK Rowling has admitted that she made a mistake by pairing off Hermione Granger with Ron Weasley rather than with Harry Potter in her best-selling books.”
And with that, the Harry Potter fandom divided. In this article from The Telegraph, the author of the famous wizarding adventures admits that she was guided by her heart and not by her head when she paired up the feisty heroine Hermione with everyone’s favourite ginger, Ron.
According to Rowling, these two would not make the most realistic couple. Could Ron make Hermione happy? Or would she be more suited to Harry?
Some fans have been outraged that Rowling would make such a comment now that the series is done and dusted. Others, including Emma Watson, who played Hermione in the films, agree with Rowling’s statement, saying that Harry and Hermione are a far better match.
What do you think?

Welcome back everyone! I hope you had a great holiday and are excited to start the new year!
When you pop into the library (probably to return your holiday reading, hint hint), you’ll see that things have changed! Our big ugly tall shelves have been replaced by nice new sleek white ones and we’ve opened up the study space in the middle of the library. Looks a bit like this:
All the non-fiction is now housed on these white shelves – it might take a little bit of getting used to to find your way around, but feel free to ask one of the librarians if you feel a bit lost. Pretty soon, we’ll have clear labels up on the ends of the shelves so you can easily find exactly what you’re looking for. Our new year displays are ‘The Roaring Twenties’ and ‘Love is in the Air’ (check them out here), featuring a whole range of interesting books for you to read.
Keep an eye on this blog for a whole lot of book and film reviews (yes, I saw The Hobbit…twice), and if you want to receive an email alert every time a new post appears, simply subscribe to the blog using the sign up button on the right.
It’s going to be an awesome year, methinks!!
