"Every so often-- for reasons that are mysterious and probably best left unexplored-- the world cinches together for a grand shared experience. This can happen in the face of great tragedy or glory. It can be the result of breathtaking human achievement or a wonder of nature. Or, as we learned on the evening of July 20, 2007, it can happen because of a 759-page children's novel."
anyone who wants the most amazing harry potter collector's item ever (apart from the books or the movies or anything directly connected with those) should go out and buy this weeks Entertainment Weekly. it has 36 pages worth of "pottermania" with summaries of every book and an article about jk rowling and a timeline of harry potter immersion into pop culture (which was pretty wicked) and more. so go get it!!!!!!!
