Dear Harry Potter Book Club:
Just a quick note on my last day -
I hope you all keep the magic going here as long as you want to and are able to, and I hope you keep the magic going elsewhere in your lives and reading as well.
Most of all, I hope you all remember that the magic lives in you! As Dumbledore would say, "Use it well."
It's been a pleasure sharing this story and the entire Harry Potter pop culture phenomenon with all of you for such an extended period of time. I know I won't be the only one crying in the theater next summer when the last movie of the series comes to an end. That forest scene with Harry and Snape is gonna be a killer.
Take care, everybody, and be well always. I have a feeling our paths may cross again one day.
Until then, I'll leave you with one of my favorite exit lines from the series:
"Give her hell from us, Peeves!" (OP:29:675).

*sniffle*. Well I had figured out this would be your last weekend here, Connie, but I thought you would be on board until the first of June. Although I joined this group only recently, it's clear to me that you were doing an excellent job as moderator here. I won't say goodbye here, only "Au Revoir" in hopes that our paths will cross again in the future. Until then, Happy Trails to you!

Connie, I wanted to stop by and wish you all the best. I know you've been an asset to this board, and to B&N, and whatever comes, will come, with hopes of success for you. You'll be missed.
