I wanted to go there, too. I mean, who wouldn't want to choose your very own owl at Eeylops Owl Emporium, or buy some magical books at Flourish and Blotts where "the shelves were stacked to the ceiling with books as large as paving stones bound in leather; books the size of postage stamps in covers of silk; books full of peculiar symbols and a few books with nothing in them at all"? Talk about a bookworm's fantasy vacation!
And don't get me started on Hogwarts, or Honeydukes and Hogsmeade. Just thinking about it makes me wish Rowling's fictional world were real. I'd happily spend the summer visiting all of Harry's haunts. Wouldn't that be cool? Good thing I've got all seven books sitting on my shelf any time I feel like 'visiting'. Here's to revisiting your favorite fictional world this summer!
Happy Birthday, Harry Potter!
