We are the Harry Potter Generation

Books give us more than we will ever know. One series of books in particular comes to mind: Harry Potter. 1,090,739 words, 3,363 pages, 199 chapters, seven books, one story. "J.K. Rowling created seven Horcruxes [how else do you explain Dumbledore, Snape, Fred, Lupin, Tonks, Hedwig, and Dobby?]. She put a part of her soul in every book and now her books will live forever." -Stephen King (via thecelebsocial).

As a tribute to J.K. Rowling and Harry Potter on their birthdays, I have assembled reasons why millions of people love Harry Potter.
