I Blame Slytherin ...

I'm a Harry Potter fan. Not a rabid "dress up like one of the three unforgivable curses" kind of fan [wink] ... but I can dig that kind of enthusiasm.

I read today that photographs of the epilogue to the final book have been leaked online. That's really a shame. I've gone out of my way not to read anything about the Deathly Hallows ... because part of the joy of Harry Potter is the suspense of reading it.

Years ago, when the kids were young, someone brought over the first Harry Potter book for the girls to share. Back then there was an outcry over children reading books about witches and magic and such.

So, I decided that one of us should read it too ... just to get an idea of what was in it. And just like that, we were all hooked. I think I've enjoyed every book almost as much as the girls.

It's evolved from a simple child's wish-fulfilment fantasy in the beginning ... to a very intricate and involved plot in the last installment.

I love everything about the series ... but I can wait until Saturday to find out what happens with "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named." I mean, it only seems fair. I've stuck with Harry this long ...

Ho, ho, ho
It's magic, you know
Never believe it's not so
It's magic, you know
Never believe, it's not so
