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.

Now that we all use electronic media like the Internet to do all our communicating, how many of us will leave behind actual letters on paper for our loved ones to remember us by? Something to think about before you forget how to communicate without IM shorthand, kids…

This part, and the entire section about Harry’s pain at his parent’s grave, and the sign that speaks of “the violence that ripped their family apart” all broke my heart. My favorite line of the entire book is also from Lily:
“You’ve been so brave.” That line killed me the worst – I had to stop to cry. :)…

Writing like this is what makes Jo’s books to special. Book 7 is now by far my favorite but competed with 1 and 3 for that title. Wonderful quote!!

I was at a restuarant when I read this quote for the first time. As soon as I got home a ran and got all of my HP books and went throught them to re-read every letter harry had ever written and to see if the gs were actually the same….. they were.
