In anticipation of my upcoming trip to Harry Potter World I just reread all 4,100 pages of the Harry Potter books with a friend of mine. Every time I reread this series I'm reminded of how wonderful these books are. I've already reviewed them on the blog (see the links to all the reviews below), but I just wanted to say that each reread reveals new layers of depth in the stories. The characters are so well-developed and complex, the epic plot is so perfectly planned out, the lessons taught are so important. I can't imagine a time when I will ever grow tired of these books.
There are books that get under our skin and become part of the fabric of who we are. For me these are some of those books. I will continue to return to them whenever I need comfort or when I'm in a reading slump. They have never let me down.
