The author is G Norman Lippert and he has written some books that follow on from the Harry Potter books. The books have the children of the original Harry Potter novels in them.

James Potter book 1 is brilliant, I am halfway through it and it is so like reading a Harry Potter novel, the writing is fabulous and there are so many familiarities with refernce to all things Harry...I definitely recommend these books for anyone who is a fan of the Harry Potter books

He is not selling his books, they are free

Books Are Here
Thanks, Kylie, I just downloaded them and will be adding them to the Kindle.

Oh yes, Greg, I endorse reading all the Harry Potter books. They're fabulous and far better than the movies. I love the pictures J.K. Rowling paints in my mind as I read. She's, to use an appropriate word, a real wizard in the literary world.

Just finished Alice in Wonderland Down the Rabbit Hole and Through the Looking Glass. What fun!!!! I wish Glenn's granddaughters would endeavor to read them.

No need to worry about me tackling the Harry Potter series. I just finished reading all the known (5/7) George RR Martin Game of Thrones series. I'm not ready to tackle any new series at present, no matter how light or how ponderous. At present I need some light reading "one off" novels. I don't want any new commitments at present.

It boggles my mind that we may need to wait 5-6 years for Martin to finish his medieval fantasy series. I sometimes wonder why I even got into this. (I've enjoyed the existing 5 novels out of the 7 projected total.)

I got into Stieg Larsson's Girl With the Dragon Tattoo knowing that the author was gone, and it all worked out well (for we fans, not for the author) in that the final volume of the trilogy gave us closure.

Whatever did Rowling decide? Terminate the series? Write more? Move on to something else? Or not specified yet?

The Harry Potter series has ended with the last book. If she writes more in the Potterverse, it will have to be a tangential story, Harry did what he was born to do.

How do I download them? I went to the link & clicked on the book name under Kindle, but all I got was jibberish. I'm using my phone to download it but I also have Kindle on my phone. Thanks.

Isabel, La Reina & Steve Jobs

I have just borrowed from the Library:

1. Isabel, La Reina Católica ( Isabel, The Catholic Queen ), written by:

Ms. Ángeles de Irisarrí ... Queen Isabel of the Catholic Reign was one of the most powerful women in her time, in a world of male rulers ... She had funded Cristobal Colon´s expeditions to the New World, known as Christopher Colombus ... Exemplary reading.

Actress Sigourney Weaver had done a portrayal of her reign in a film called: 1492 ...

2. Steve Jobs - Written by: Walter Isaacson

Steve Jobs was brilliant ... and quite a revolutionary in his own right. I shall begin it at the weekend.

Have a wonderful Tuesday.
Ciao, Margi.

I suppose he could have waited until all 7 books (7-10K pages) were written, edited, and ready before releasing anything. Books of this stature take time, no way around it.

I am ready for the next one, but I will have to wait.

Try reading the Dark Tower cycle. It's finished... and that took much longer.

I've been speculating for years that she might move on to an adult novel or series, probably also fantasy. Not related to Potter series.
