At this moment, all seven Harry Potter books sit in a row on the bookshelf next to my computer. It's been awhile since I've taken them down and read them, but I'm sure, as the years continue and books come and go, those seven books will remain on my shelves. Someday maybe my kids will take them down and read them. I might revisit the stories once again, possibly sooner than later. Honestly, it's a little hard to believe that the last book, number seven, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was published back in 2007. Four years already? Where did the time go?
And now the movie version is nearing the end as well! Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 (DVD and Blu-ray) was just released on April 15th. The final film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, premieres in theaters this year, on July 15th.
My husband and I haven't had the chance to see the Blu-ray version yet, but we're hoping to view it soon. The Blu-ray looks like it is loaded with several bonuses, including an exclusive sneak peek from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt 2!
