Pottering Around--Are You a Quiz Wizard?

Okay, Potter fans. It's exactly two months until the release of Harry Potter Number 4. (J. K. Rowling won't say what the title is until the book is published because she is superstitious about titles.) And so this is the time to check up on just how much you know.
