Today’s top item in Book News: Ginny Weasley, the freckly, flame-haired girl who later marries Harry Potter, grows up to be a sports journalist, according to new writing from J.K. Rowling on the website Pottermore. (Login required.) The stories are Ginny’s dispatches from the 2014 Quidditch World Cup for the magical newspaper The Daily Prophet. “Not a single Quaffle thrown, not a single Snitch caught, but the 427th Quidditch World Cup is already mired in controversy,” she writes. “Magizoologists have congregated in the desert to contain the mayhem and Healers have attended more than 300 crowd members suffering from shock, broken bones and bites.”
Also today, Ian McEwan on having dinner with Salman Rushdie during the fatwa, and James Salter remembers Peter Matthiessen. Read more here.

I’m not really a fan of the on-going epilogue, especially when it comes to Harry Potter. I’m pretty satisfied with the ending. I don’t have a need for Pottermore.
BUT. Of COURSE Ginny would have this amazing of a job. Of COURSE she would be a journalist. 
Can’t be too annoyed here.

If a Disney princess had night terrors, the story of Sansa Stark might be what woke her up screaming. Often overlooked in favor of her killer kid sister, the elder Stark sibling has had all her illusions about the world, and her safety in it, shattered. But her quiet, innate political shrewdness and emotional strength have enabled her to survive in a royal court that likely would have cost every other member of her family their heads. She’s the show’s best-kept secret.

I’m not necessarily a Sansa-sympathizer, but this points out her incredible strength. The majority of her family have been killed, and King’s Landing is the most dangerous place in Westeros (south of the wall), yet she manages to keep her head down and remain alive…
