Some James Logan students have their prized copies of the just-released Harry Potter book, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," after waiting outside local booksellers for the tome to go on sale last weekend.
“It's not a book series; it’s a way of life.” Caitlin of Union City commented as she stood inside Borders Books in her Slytherin costume. “You can't just live with it as a book; you get immersed in it.”
She wasn’t the only fan who felt this way, as the Union City Borders was packed with Harry-cravers from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Elias Canetti (Rousse,Bulgaria, 25 July 1905 – 14 August 1994, Zurich) was a Bulgaria-born novelist of Sephardi Jewish ancestry who wrote in German and won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1981.
Elias Canetti was the eldest son in a Jewish merchant family in Rustchuk (present-day Rousse). His ancestors were Sephardi Jews who had been expelled from Spain in 1492. The original family name was Cañete, named after a village in Spain. Elias spent his childhood years, from 1905 to 1911, in Rustchuk until the family moved to England. In 1912 his father died suddenly, and his mother moved with their children to Vienna in the same year.
