Encore! Encore! Why the Harry Potter Series Will Never Get Old

It seems like just yesterday I was waiting in line at Barnes & Noble, eagerly counting down to midnight with a lightning bolt tattooed on my forehead, a custom-made wand in hand, and a four-corner smile on my face.That’s right, I admit it.
