Harry Potter [SIV37]

At midnight on Friday, July 20th 2007, the last installment of the Harry Potter series was released in bookstores across America. 

At The Flying Pig Bookstore in Shelburne VT, owners Elizabeth Bluemle and Josie Leavitt have been celebrating Harry Potter book releases for years.

The costumed crowd numbered in the hundreds and the air was thick with excitement. 

Anxious house elves, thunder-bolted wizards, Gryffindors, Hufflepuffs, Ravenclaws, high-hatted witches and even a Hagrid waited for midnight to roll around so they could read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Why do people love Harry Potter so much and what will the final book tell us?  Watch and see...
