Hallows USA Today's Book of the Year

USA Today has just named Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 'Book of the Year' for 2007.

According to the publication, the reasons for selecting the final Harry Potter book for the honor are "as varied as the different wizards' wands found in Diagon Alley", but ultimately "Hallows is the 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. She made us believe that the imagination - like her own little wizard, now all grown up - still lives."
