"MUM, you bought the 'No pulp' kind again..." I grumble, grimacing with my first sip of orange juice.

"Sorry, dear. I always forget which kind you like," she apologizes.

"It's 'SOME pulp'," I remind her for what must be the millionth time.

She scribbles something on the grocery list tacked to the inside of the silverware cupboard door.

"Run out and get the mail?" She asks.

I run my thumb up the stack of napkins that sits on the table. "Do I have to?"

She turns around and gives me a look that usually means No-dear-you-don't-have-to-but-if-you-don't-I'm-going-to-buy-more-no-pulp-orange-juice.

I groan and stumble out the door, still in my pale-blue nightgown. It's not yet light, but mum loves it when we get up early to "Get a fresh start on the day," so I'm stuck getting up at this ungodly hour of the morning, although my little sister Amelia gets off easy, only having to be awake by 7:00. By my estimate, it's about 6:30 right now.

Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson’s portrayal of J. K. Rowling’s wizarding trio Harry, Ron and Hermione has impressed film buffs who have voted it the best book to film adaptation of all time.

The poll – run by Samsung Electronics – was set up to coincide with the release of David Fincher’s screen adaptation of Gone Girl starring Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck.

A third of film buffs voted the Harry Potter series - starring Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith and Warwick Davis - as the best adaptation.

Award winning The Shawshank Redemption starring Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins followed closely in second, with The Lord of the Rings trilogy taking third place.

Other favourites to make the list were romantic classic Gone With the Wind starring Vivien Leigh and Clarke Gable as Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler, as well as Silence of the Lambs and Bridget Jones’s Diary.

Robert Pattinson may have earned himself an army of adoring female fans in vampire fantasy, Twilight but the film adaptation failed to match up to the novel’s success.

Menahem Asher Silva Vargas might need to find the Room of Requirement . The Mexico City man probably could use some extra space these days, as he’s acquired no fewer than 3,097 pieces of Harry Potter memorabilia.
Instead, Vargas will have to settle for a definitively Muggle Guinness World Record. His collection—which includes everything from toy figurines to replica Quidditch brooms—obliterated the previous record holder, an 807-item assortment, like a Reductor Curse from Dumbledore’s wand itself. [The Guardian ]
Guys like Vargas made the Harry Potter franchise the economic juggernaut it has become. For a more comprehensive look at what makes these type of enterprises explode, pick up How Star Wars Conquered the Universe: The Past, Present and Future of a Multibillion Dollar Franchise, a new book by Chris Taylor out today. Star Wars fans may currently be enjoying a renaissance, but Taylor goes to great lengths to remind readers that the franchise’s success wasn’t always a given. [USA Today ]
