I am pleased but little surprised to see that Harry Potter landed on that list. However, I do consider it an egregious atrocity that it finds itself in the company of that most horrendous crime imposed upon the world of fantasy literature, feminist advances, and actually capacity for prudent thinking that goes by the name of Twilight.

I’d be shocked if it DIDN’T make the best-selling list.
And I’d be depressed if the vampire-book-that-must-not-be-named had gotten the number spot!
