There are now only 69 days left until "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" hits theaters!  We are posting a quote from the first half of the book every day in celebration and to give us a chance to discuss and ponder the final book as it goes to film. Here is today's quote!

He read the letter again, but could not take in any more meaning than he had done the first time, and was reduced to staring at the handwriting itself. She had made her "g"s the same way he did: He searched through the letter for every one of them, and each felt like a friendly little wave glimpsed from behind a veil. This letter was an incredible treasure, proof that Lily Potter had lived, really lived, that her warm hand had once moved across this parchment, tracing ink into these letters, these words, words about him, Harry, her son.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "Kreacher's Tale"

It’s amazing how one thing can be so heart touching. It made me cry. I could never imagine going through what Harry goes through.

This really was beautiful and touching… Poor Harry, only getting a shadowy glimpse of the world he was forced to leave behind…
