In addition to the article about traveling to locations from the Harry Potter movies and books, the NY Times makes at least two mentions of Harry Potter in today’s issue. First, in an article about the stage version of Phillip Pullman’s His Dark Materials, the Times describes the Pullman books as “the brooding child’s “Harry Potter.” Then, in an article about the US presidential campaign, an article about candidate donations via Amazon.com quotes Amazon’s site as saying, “We’re making it as easy for people to contribute as it is to buy the latest Harry Potter.”

The Leaky Cauldron is not associated with J.K. Rowling, Warner Bros., or any of the individuals or companies associated with producing and publishing Harry Potter books and films.
