    We started reading the books last May. We read a little each night, and when we finish the book we watch the movie together as a family! My son decided he wanted a Harry Potter-themed birthday party, so here is dining in the Great Hall! Each place setting has a cauldron of goodies, Harry Potter glasses, and a goblet, of course! We are finally on book 7, too!
