Ten years ago, in July 2007, I found myself at a midnight book party in Las Vegas for the release of Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows. Even though I was there on business, that couldn’t stop me from waiting in line at Barnes & Noble to be among the first to devour the final installment of the Harry Potter series and learn the fates of Harry, Hermione, Ron, and, of course, Voldemort. Ten years had passed since The Sorcerer's Stone was published, and my two young sons and I were ready to indulge in the final chapter. It was well worth the wait.
