In an online interview, J.K. Rowling

allegedly kinda sorta hinted
that maybe there might be an eighth Harry Potter book, after maintaining for years that she would stop at seven.

How much weight should be placed on incredibly vague quotes like this one, that are probably being taken out of context anyway? And how many more years do we have to wait before we see the sixth and seventh books? (I’d start a betting pool, but there’s a good chance many of us will die of old age before there’s a winner.)
