Just in case you missed the news, Geeks of Doom reports that on this date in the books, Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley Potter’s first son, James Severus Potter, begins his first term at Hogwarts. The kid featured in the epilogue of the last book, their second son, Albus Severus Potter, will enter in another two years.

I don’t know if you feel old, but I sure do.

If you feel like commemorating the day with a purchase, the entire series is just under $58 for Kindle via Pottermore. (Or $52 in paperback. Amazon being what it is.)
