Lead in Literature - Lead in Harry Potter

Our "Lead in Literature" quote this issue comes from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the fourth Harry Potter book by J.K Rowling . One of several references to lead in the book occurs after Harry asks a girl to the end of 4th year high school ball with him, only to discover that she's already going with his rival, and is genuinely sorry.

"[After Harry puts the question] It was odd; a moment before, his insides had been writhing like snakes, but suddenly he didn’t seem to have any insides at all…

"[After her reply] His insides had come back again. It felt as though they had been filled with lead in their absence.

Those of you who have been reading Harry Potter and often wondered how to pronounce Hermione, the 4th Book in the series gives the correct pronunciation "Her–my–oh–nee".
