drawing of Harry and Hagrid from behind looking towards Hogwarts and the top of the illustration says: 13 years, 3407 pages, 17 hours and 48 minutes, the end is almost here.

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.
