The USA Today has published a Books Year in Review special, and selected “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” as their number one book of the year. In an article titled “Harry Potter prevails, wands down,” the newspaper addresses the various sales records, the pre-release spoilers and excitement for book seven in the Harry Potter series, as well as the post release revelations from JKR, but noted none of these things mattered in the final decision. “Deathly Hallows” was their choice as book of the year because “Rowling gave her story an ending that was as graceful, unpredictable and satisfying as the series itself. She reaffirmed that magic can exist when someone opens a great book and enters a world created from words on paper.”

Indeed! You can also read the top nine other book recognized this year via this link. Thanks to everyone who emailed!

Guess That Book

Harry was used to spiders, because the cupboard under the stairs was full of them, and that was where he slept.
