Every Harry Potter Book Summed Up in a Single Sentence

I know that you have read all the Harry Potter books. At this point, everyone in the world who is going to read the Potter books has already read them. You don’t need me to tell you what happens; you don’t need my pithy one-sentence summaries. I get that.

But sometimes you find yourself going about your day, just minding your own business, when you suddenly remember that Harry Potter exists, and you think man, I should read those books again. Unfortunately, you don’t have the time. Life is stern and unrelenting, and you have things to do, people to see, and books to read that you haven’t already read twelve times.

And that’s when you’re going to wish someone had made a slideshow like this one. Fortunately for you, someone did. (Me. I did. You’re welcome.)
