I'm leaning toward taking a break for one of the best books ever, but it's so hard because I'm really liking The Rainmaker. I just have this urge to spend the last few weeks before the end of this era reading some of the best literature a child could grow up with. I think it's kind of symbolic that my birthday arrives just days after the last Harry Potter movie comes out. My 21st birthday officially (I believe even more so than 18) will mark the end of my childhood, something that Harry Potter was a big part of. I can still remember when a bunch of people freaked out because the books were "teaching kids witchcraft." It seems a far cry from how most of society feels about the books today. In reality, the books taught us that despite all of the evil in the world, there is so much good (that and about a million other life lessons).
Despite the end of this era fastly approaching, there will never be a time when Harry Potter is forgotten. Harry is very much a classic and will remain in our hearts and on our book shelves forever.
