If you haven’t stayed up until the early hours of the morning reading with your eyes itching and burning with tiredness and your vision blurred as you fight to stay awake to finish the book, you haven’t lived at all

The best part of the video may be when Jackson addresses the comments she’s heard about her daughter and sets the record straight about statements like you “wanted a girl so you turned your child into one” and “kids have no idea what they want or who they are — my kids wants to be a dog, should I let him?”

So watch the full video to see her answers to those difficult questions here.

Thank god for the internet!  I’m glad this mother was able to find answers and do the right thing for her child.  It seems like this sort of thing is happening more and more often.  Hopefully one day this will be a total non-issue.

But okay listen: 7 years ago today, MILLIONS. LITERALLY MILLIONS. of Potterheads from all over the world were sitting with their brand-new copies of the Deathly Hallows and taking their final journey with Harry. It’s amazing when you think of the sheer scope of it-that many people in a sense united by this one book, riding the same emotional roller coaster simultaneously. 


The saddest part is that it will never happen that way again.  Of course there will always still be kids reading Harry Potter, but never again will they all read it at exactly the same time.  I think about this fact more often than I should, and it makes me a lot sadder than it should.
