.: The Harry Potter Rumour Mill :.


**Warning**
This editorial contains spoilers for Book Six. Those looking to read The Half-Blood Prince with pure and innocent eyes may not want to read on.


Inspired by the recent Half-Blood Prince "Death Rumour", this editorial is going to focus on some of the rumours of the past. Just for fun, I have compiled the categorized list below using information from www.jkrowling.com, my memory, and various fan sites. I must also give an amount of credit specifically to www.harrypotterrumors.net, a site mainly devoted to Harry Potter rumours- hence the name. I spent some time reading their extensive list and had fun doing it.

Some of what you see below was almost believable, some of it is obscure, and some of it is nothing short of ridiculous. I�ve tried to stay away from theories and only list the rumours that have been officially debunked. In some cases, I simply couldn�t resist.

Book Names:

- Book Six is called 'Harry Potter and the Toenail of Icklib�gg'
- Book Six is called 'Harry Potter and the Pillar of Storg�'
- Book Six is called 'Harry Potter and the Green Flame Torch'
- Book Six is called 'Harry Potter and the Mountain of Fantasy'
- Book Seven is called 'Harry Potter and the Fortress of Shadow'
