[books] Green, the New Blue

The cover for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is now available for your viewing pleasure.

As we are all aware, the last book had a bluecover, which for some reason spawned all sorts of other books to come out with blue covers.

My theory was that some kid might ask a parent for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and say, "It's blue, okay? It's got a blue cover." And because parents generally fuck-up and get the wrong thing, they picked up any old blue hardcover book. Right? Can't you see this happening, too? So I'm getting read for loads of new children's chapter books that just happen to be green.
