Thursday, February 4th marks the second annual Harry Potter Book Night and the OverDrive staff is celebrating! We are a company full of Harry Potter fans and in today's episode, two Ravenclaws, a Gryffindor, and a Slytherin share how they first got into J.K. Rowling's series, remember standing in line at midnight book releases, and, of course, discuss the movies versus the books. You'll also get to hear which books are our favorites and why. With ALA's annual conference in Orlando this summer, there is also talk about the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park at Universal Studios Florida.
