Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts for his fourth year of magical adventures in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. This year Harry turns 14 and becomes interested in girls -- one in particular. And with Dark Magic comes danger, as someone close to Harry dies. You'll have to listen to learn more! The audio is available on July 8th.

In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, J.K. Rowling offers up equal parts danger and delight--and any number of dragons, house-elves, and death-defying challenges. Now 14, her orphan hero has only two more weeks with his Muggle relatives before returning to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Yet one night a vision harrowing enough to make his lightning-bolt-shaped scar burn has Harry on edge and contacting his godfather-in-hiding, Sirius Black. Happily, the prospect of attending the season's premier sporting event, the Quidditch World Cup, is enough to make Harry momentarily forget that Lord Voldemort and his sinister familiars--the Death Eaters--are out for murder.
Readers, we will cast a giant invisibility cloak over any more plot and reveal only that You-Know-Who is very much after Harry and that this year there will be no Quidditch matches between Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin. Instead, Hogwarts will vie with two other magicians' schools, the stylish Beauxbatons and the icy Durmstrang, in a Triwizard Tournament. Those chosen to compete will undergo three supreme tests. Could Harry be one of the lucky contenders?
But Quidditch buffs need not go into mourning: we get our share of this great game at the World Cup. Attempting to go incognito as Muggles, 100,000 witches and wizards converge on a "nice deserted moor." As ever, Rowling magicks up the details that make her world so vivid, and so comic. Several spectators' tents, for instance, are entirely unquotidian. One is a minipalace, complete with live peacocks; another has three floors and multiple turrets. And the sports paraphernalia on offer includes rosettes "squealing the names of the players" as well as "tiny models of Firebolts that really flew, and collectible figures of famous players, which strolled across the palm of your hand, preening themselves." Needless to say, the two teams are decidedly different, down to their mascots. Bulgaria is supported by the beautiful veela, who instantly enchant everyone--including Ireland's supporters--over to their side. Until, that is, thousands of tiny cheerleaders engage in some pyrotechnics of their own: "The leprechauns had risen into the air again, and this time, they formed a giant hand, which was making a very rude sign indeed at the veela across the field."
Long before her fourth installment appeared, Rowling warned that it would be darker, and it's true that every exhilaration is equaled by a moment that has us fearing for Harry's life, the book's emotions running as deep as its dangers. Along the way, though, she conjures up such new characters as Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody, a Dark Wizard catcher who may or may not be getting paranoid in his old age, and Rita Skeeter, who beetles around Hogwarts in search of stories. (This Daily Prophet scoop artist has a Quick-Quotes Quill that turns even the most innocent assertion into tabloid innuendo.) And at her bedazzling close, Rowling leaves several plot strands open, awaiting book 5. This fan is ready to wager that the author herself is part veela--her pen her wand, her commitment to her world complete. (Ages 9 and older) --Kerry Fried

2001 WRC Rally Great Britain
2001 WRC Rally Great Britain
GravelCrew members, Rodney Wills and Scott G [shown above] make the trip over to see what is really going on and how it's done!!!! WARNING - 8,000 WORDS!!! Eight days in the UK Our trip to the Network Q Rally of Great Britain 2001 Words & fotos: rodney wills We had dreamed of flying over to the UK to witness real deal rally action in what we consider the homeland of rally, Great Britain. This was our first trip to the UK with no prior desire to go, but the rally bug has gotten the better of us. While at the 2001 SEMA show in Los Vegas rally racing was all the buzz on the show floor with Scott Hartman on Intrax/Proflex Suspension Systems winning the best of show with his Ford Focus styled in rally trim. We had meet with some people and said we where thinking about going. It was just a thought with not a ticket purchased or arrangement made. Mention was made to us about how difficult it would be to get press passes to the rally event. We proceeded with last minute efforts that ended in failure due to passed deadlines for press credentials. We did not care. We have seen all the videos, photos and Speedvision coverage of the massive amounts of fans at these events and said to ourselves that we too would be happy and content right there on the sidelines with the true enthusiast! With truth, what a lie! Being media types, we want those photo pass aprons for our collection. It in it’s self is a material prize. We scored some cheap tickets online and proceeded with our dream with an evil eye from my wife, as we would miss our first Thanksgiving holiday together! November 20’01 - Tuesday We had a 6:20 am flight out of LAX / Los Angeles, so Scott crashed on my couch, luckily for him! When we woke up in the morning to go to the airport his eyes seemed to have dealt him the worst misery that all metal fabricators dread – “welding flash.” Scott awoke to eyes oozing with liquid and could not keep his eyes open nor could he see. When he tried it was screaming agony. He said it would be OK, but I feared the worst. I had no idea what was instore for his eyes as we made way to the airport. He said his eyes felt like sand paper was in the eyelids and when his eyes rolled it made tears and burned as if salt was thrown on an open wound. He looked a horrible mess so we donned him with sunglasses, but looked a bit funny with only the moon in the sky. We did not care how shady of a character he looked; we were off to the UK for some real core rally action. But after some time, we had plenty, with our sixteen-hour trip ahead, his eyes cleared up to my joy and amazement. I did not have to lead a blind man in the forest! November 21’01 – Wednesday It’s was cold and had just rained. We landed 6:00 in the morning at Heathrow airport in London via a stop over in Washington DC. We noticed a guy getting on the plain back in DC carrying a record bag filled enough to spin several sets. We talked with him once we landed and was doing to baggage claim thing and found out that he was the owner of Ohm Records and doing a couple of gigs. We exchanged biz cards and he helped us to find the bus station per his recommendation of getting around cheap. We are on a budget! Scott and I booked our selves bus tickets to Cardiff where the rally headquarters was but with Gloucester as a stopover to visit our friends at CA Magazine – the primer car audio magazine for the UK. We arrive mid-day after making the journey up the twisting roads and were quite shocked to find the magazine located in such a small town. Luckily for us a girl overheard our conversation on the bus and said she knew the location for CA Mag. It was walking distance from the bus station so she walked us to the CA office. She was a New Zealander and played professional rugby for one of the local women’s teams hence her residency in Gloucester. Chris the editor for the mag was out of the office some 200 miles away so we were done for the day. We found a cheap hotel within walking distance with the help of the CA office staff calling ahead for us to reserve the spot. The main strip in town has all the shops that support the local town with all it’s shopping duties from clothing, food, books, to what ever a small town might fancy. Our hotel was located on the center of the strip between a newsstand and a small sandwich shop. A big wooden gate of mid-evil area was brought to mind as we passed through it between these two shops as this was the main entrance to the hotel. We walked in and Cedric the attendant, not the entertainer, but entertaining enough, simple gave us the key with no exchange of credit card information, name, address or anything and said breakfast is served from 7:00 –11:00 in the morning after showing us to our room. We dropped the bags in the room and headed for food and to scout locations as to what we thought might make for good photo shoot locations for cars. We thought we would be shooting some cars the next day for Car Audio Mag USA - WRONG. Cool cars do not exist

When I began listening to the Harry Potter audio books, I needed something to do while I listened. It couldn’t be anything which required a lot of thought, after all I was listening to a book. I began playing simple online games and stumbled across this desktop tower defense. Soon I was hooked. Now I can’t stop. This game is so frustrating. No matter how many times I try, I cannot beat some of the levels. And it isn’t for lack of trying. After all, the fifth book took twenty-seven hours to listen to. How do you beat it!?
