Harry's 20!

Please take your seats ... the Hogwarts Express prepares to depart from Platform 9 3/4 at King’s Cross.
Seven books selling some 450 million copies (including translations into Ancient Greek, Latin, and Welsh) and 8 movies starring a who's who of British actors... not bad for 20 years.

Author JK Rowling tweeted her thanks on the anniversary of the publication of  the first "Harry Potter" book, “20 years ago today a world that I had lived in alone was suddenly open to others. It’s been wonderful. Thank you.”
