Celebrating a Softer Side of Harry

Hp7_130 What were you doing July 21, 2007? Even though it was two years ago, I can tell you exactly what I was doing: reading my copy of the just-released Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Since then I’ve read the book all over again, cover-to-cover, plus listened to the audio book twice. So, do you think I was excited when the book came out in paperback earlier this week? Even a troll would know the answer to that question: YES!

And don’t forget that our next STACKS chat is all about Harry Potter! Join us on July 25, 4–5 p.m. (ET) for a LIVE discussion about the boy who lived.

    I wish i’d been there it looks like so much fun! HARY POTTER ROCKS!!!!!!!!!! For all u Harry Potter fans out there: U ROCK! I love H.P. so much i even got a wand. i’ve seen the movies almost 12 times each. J.k. Rowling’s the most creative and best author there is. I wish i could meet the H.P. cast.

    Ha ha, thanks for the compliments on my photo captions! I wrote that one about the costume at the end of a long day, and when I read it to Nancy, she actually said, “Karen, I think you’ve gone off the deep end.” :-)
