I suppose the tagline is right: It all ends.
The Harry Potter worldwide cultural phenomenon no longer has future events we can all look forward to and experience together.
I know I sound melodramatic – I know.
But (really) I do believe that this whole 10+ year Harry Potter experience [...]
I also got a toy from Kevin for Christmas – a LEGO Harry Potter board game.
Who knew such a thing even existed!
It’s pretty fantastic, too … the stairs “change” (just like in the book/movie) based on how the dice is rolled so every game is different.
But, really, the best part was [...]
Last Thursday Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 premiered in theaters.

Tuesday night/Wednesday morning, Andrew and I had a ‘date night’ …
To the Midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince!

The battle between Death Eaters and the Order is disappointingly short … and all over the place … I definitely missed seeing some [...]
Today in my children’s lit class, our professor went over a paper she’s writign about names and language in Harry Potter … Rowling really is quite genius in some of her naming …
Horace Slughorn — for hoarding students, connections and luxuries …. Hermione — for Hermes the god of communication … Kreacher — [...]
interesting bit of trivia:
The first time I read Harry Potter books was January 2004. Just barely over 2 years ago … I currently have 17 Harry Potter-related books .. by JK Rowling and others …
