Nine years. That’s how long it’s been since we’ve eagerly waited in line to get our hands on a book at midnight. What changed and what stayed the same?
Eight years ago today the the book that marked the end of an era made its way to bookstore shelves and into the hands of an eager generation of “Harry Potter” fans. We all remember where we were when we read “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” for the first time. For some of us it was directly following the release, while others waited a few years before coming to the end of the journey. My first time through the pages of the seventh volume in the “Harry Potter” series was the very second the clock struck twelve on July 21, 2007.
