Geeky Harry

USA Today put Harry in their list of 'geeks at their peak':
Who is he? Bespectacled book boy turned movie hero, selling millions of copies in the publishing world and millions of tickets at the box office.

Why he's a cool geek: He may be a misfit, with Muggle parents and the gift of wizardry making him not quite of either world. But he's smart, he's brave and he has turned kids on to reading in a big way. Now, round black glasses and, well, thinking are really cool, thanks to him.

USA Today hasn't read the books very closely (it's another 'H' character with Muggle parents, guys - not Harry), but it's nice that they recognized him all the same.

Thanks, Barbara!
