Entertainment Weekly magazine has released their 1,000th issue, marking the occasion by creating a list of 1,000 new classics. JK Rowling was named the top Favorite Author, while Goblet of Fire was listed as the number two best read between 1983 and 2008.

Additionally, the cover includes Dan Radcliffe front and center from Goblet of Fire. Standing behind him are notable 'new classics' such as Bono, Johnny Depp, Beyonce, and Will Smith. Thanks to Kris for the tip!
