Text from Jane Eyre is a hilarious new book by Mallory Ortberg,
co-creator of The Toast. As the title suggests, the book imagines text conversations between famous literary characters.
Though the book doesn't hit shelves until tomorrow, the author has offered a glimpse at one of the biggest cult-favorite series out there. Of course I'm talking about the boy wizard Harry Potter and his magical crew. The sneak peak passage is of an exchange between Ron and half-muggle Hermione, who attempts to educate the well-meaning but very clueless wizard on non-magical subjects such as fractions and the importance of a good credit score.
Ortberg explains, "I fear for Ron — lovely, dim Ron — in the real world (I fear for all of them, but I love Ron the most, so he gets the majority of my concern)."
