The day is finally here. I can’t believe it’s been 13 years since the first Harry Potter book was published. And today the last movie is released. I was horrified the other night when I realized that my book club is meeting tonight. What about Harry??? But my friend Sherri, who I see all the Harry Potter movies with, agreed to go to a later showing so that I could make my book club and see Harry Potter. It’s going to be a full night, but I certainly couldn’t miss seeing the movie on opening night.
It’s strange how these books have been such a big part of my life since they came out. I quote them, I have re-watched the movies countless times, I even name things after the books (case in point, I named a quilt I made with owl fabric “Pigwidgeon”). And the audiobooks have brought me countless hours of entertainment while making my commute to and from work. I can’t begin to describe how well-loved these books are.
It’s the end of an era. But at least I’ll be there tonight.
