Harry Potter and the End of an Era

Having spent the last 11 years eagerly anticipating the next book or movie, I'm feeling an amazing sense of impending loss at the release of the last movie. It's the last. After that, it will be over. No more bookstore stalking or Amazon pre-ordering. No more midnight movie lines. No more creeping at my secret… Continue reading Harry Potter and the End of an Era
