Even Homer Nods

The Sun Online - News: JK has lost the plot: "JK ROWLING has been forced to correct a plot blunder in a Harry Potter book — after fans spotted it.

The author credits Hermione Granger with 11 top exam results in the first hardback edition of book six, Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince.

But in book five — Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix — we are told she takes TEN examinations.

Publishers Bloomsbury have corrected the paperback edition to give Hermione nine “outstanding” and one “exceeds expectations” in her Ordinary Wizarding Levels."

I saw a place in book 2 where she was called Miss Grant. Do I win a prize for that?

I think you should call up Ms. Rowling and ask.

I guess this is the reason to read more of the books, to find the discrepencies. I stopped after the third one because after #1 I couldn't find anything really new.

thanks, Bill - I'd missed that ;)
