God, I love this book. This was my third time reading it (first time since the summer of 2007 when it was first released). Reading it again brought back so many memories from July 2007: leaving work early and my supervisor shouting "only 12 more hours!" while I walked out; sitting in line at B&N for hours to get my wristband; wearing my Deathly Hallows t-shirt to the midnight party and making a fool out of myself; jumping up and down in line and screaming when the countdown started (yes, I was that girl); and then hardly sleeping the rest of the weekend while I laughed/cried through the entire book. For me, I can't imagine there ever being another story and characters that will captivate me for so many years. This was the perfect end to the perfect series. And the best part is knowing that even though the story is over, the books are always on the shelf, waiting to be read all over again.
