should I buy the Harry Potter ebooks? (and other adventures in social networking)

What my followers on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ saw today:
• Educated: I don’t think it means what they think it means. Study: Trust in science among educated conservatives plunges

• This seems like a really good idea. Pity the site is such a visual disaster. Curator’s Code

• I am having a fierce debate with myself whether it’s worth buying the ebooks, paying again for something I’ve already paid for. Yes, I love the books, and yes, I think I will read them again… but it might be kinda nice — and a sweet gesture to fans — if there was some way of giving some sort of discount to the fans who’ve supported Rowling from the beginning, or close to. Maybe a credit if you can demonstrate you donated your print books to a library or school? J.K. Rowling’s ‘Harry Potter’ e-books are finally available on Pottermore

• Oh, for pete’s sake. Women cannot ever, ever win. We’re *always* either too fat or too skinny. Will there ever come a day when women are considered to be perfectly okay the same way that men are, pretty much no matter what they look like? I mean, come *on*! If Lawrence is too “well fed” in the film, then so are Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, and no one is complaining about how they look. (Of course, there are good reasons within the context of the story why all of them are relatively well fed in a district that’s starving, but that’s another matter entirely.) Was Jennifer Lawrence too well fed for ‘The Hunger Games’?
