HP 7: The Invisibility Cloak

Hmmm...couldn't resist a Harry Potter posting this evening, as I just took a break and hopped over to HP blogland for the first time in a while. Turns out JK Rowling has updated her site again, as of September 13, with a question she says she's never been asked, but should have been asked. Surprisingly, here it is (and it wasn't anything I was expecting):

Why did Dumbledore have James’ invisibility cloak at the time of James’ death, given that Dumbledore could make himself invisible without a cloak?

And here's another intriguing bit: her "answer" (if you could call it that) is that there IS an answer, which she claims is "significant" and one could even say "crucial."

Hmm....plot to book 7 thickens.

Accio thinking caps!

Hmmmmm... Oh, the frustration of ever increasing confuzzlement! (Did I just make up that word?) I heard about her recent bout with airline security. I don't blame her for not being willing to part with her manuscript - especially with part of it handwritten! And can you imagine what a lot of people would pay to get their hands on that? Can't be too protective...

Yikes! Hadn't heard that one! Poor woman. I wouldn't have parted with the manuscript either! :-)
