After reading Half-Blood Prince, I was wondering if the word “Horcrux” had any previous etymology, and looked it up on Wikipedia.
Only to discover that it really doesn’t… but that amazingly, less than 24 hours after the release of the new Harry Potter book, there’s a whole entry on the term on Wikipedia. Yet another very cool example of how amazing this site is.
Don’t read it, though, if you don’t want the plot spoiled! Just sayin’
