The Magic of Harry Potter

It's tough to explain the magic of the Harry Potter books and movies to someone who hasn't experienced them. Scratch that -- it's impossible. My best friend had been trying to get me to read the books since 2005. My response was always, "I'm a grown woman. I am not reading a book about wizards."

Well, I read the first one, and then I read the next one, and less than a month later, I had read all seven books and watched all eight movies. 

I read obsessively. I have read more books in the past year than most people read in a lifetime. I majored in English, so for four years, it was practically my job to read obsessively. These books were easily the best reading experience of my life. 

Here are some bloopers from the movies. They show some of the magic, but not nearly all of it...
