    Book nerd problems lol. I do this all the time. Then when you find out and your just like, "Crap, now there's 2 ways to say it in my head every time I read the f'ing name!" - Yup what this pinner said is exactly what happens to me.

    lolsotrue: when you don't know how to pronounce a character's name in a book, so you just substitute your own jibberish word in your head.

    If they'd just make them pronounceable in the first place I wouldn't have to....------so so so true! (The bad thing is a year later when you are teaching a class and that book is brought up and they ask you how to read the name)

    So funny story. I started reading Harry Potter before I knew about this stuff. So, before the movies, Hermione was more akin to "Hermone" (close to hormone) in my head...Thank goodness the movies (or was it the audio books?) corrected me.
