Children's Book Week: Postscript

Well, it's been great fun this week, talking all about our favorite books of the year. If only it were Children's Book Month, or even Fortnight, we have so many more books to rave about! Thanks to all the folks who came by the store and checked out the books and commented on them (and bought them!).

Finally, we can't let a best of the year list go by without mentioning an obscure little title we loved loved loved:


Yeah, we realize there was much hype and attention surrounding the summer release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling, but despite all that, we feel that it is truly deserving of much recognition as one of our favorite books of 2007.

Some us -- Those Who Shall Not Be Named -- still get goosebumps when talking about HP7. For us, it was the perfect culmination, a literary casting off of a great story, a graduation of sorts for the many years we had spent at Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry, which if you think about, was really more than 7 years since we had to wait so long in between books.

We are so proud of Harry- he really has grown into a fine young man. HP7 was a true coming of age tale, and we look forward to sharing Harry's story with new readers for many, many years to come.

And yes, we really do like Snape.
