This book is dedicated to my seven: to Jane—my favorite and only sister to Kanet—my first and last wife to Nathan, Blair, and Alexi—our oxymoronic grown children to Jennifer and Matt—our older kids' spouses whom we have gained as another daughter and son
This book is a guide to the rereading of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter books. I assume you will find, as I have and still do, plenty of rewards and surprises by going back through the series.
Such is the joy and such is the power of rereading a rich text, of reliving a story that resonates so deeply with us all—a story, such as Harry's, that is both in our heads and real. When the story has ended, and the book is done, and when we must say good-bye to the characters we love (and hate), we need only say good-bye for the present—only until be open the book and begin to read again.
