look up any word, like blumpkin:
1) In my opinion, the best series of books ever written. Sorry, Twilight fangirls, but it's true. Often compared to the Lord of the Rings, though commonly compared for the wrong reason. I compare them because they are the best and second best series of books ever written.
2) The best series of movies ever. Even though the movies are not as good as the books (so far), they still beat most other movies and all other movie series. In order of best to worst so far in my opinion, here they are:

1. Goblet of Fire
2. Half-Blood Prince
3. Prisoner of Azkaban
4. Chamber of Secrets
5. Sorcerer's (Philosopher's) Stone
6. Order of the Phoenix

Somehow they managed to make the longest and possibly best book the shortest and worst movie. And the movie is STILL awesome.
3) A boy from the series defined above with a scar shaped like a bolt of lightning on his head. Enemy of Lord Voldemort.

A series of books that most people haven't read but don't hesitate to critcize, anyways. Often mistaken as books that are "just for kids", when the truth is they curse more than my older brother, are dark and depressing, but at the same time funny and lighthearted.
Dude: Harry Potter's gay.
Friend: Is that supposed to be an INSULT?!?!?!

Best book series and movie series ever!
J.K. Rowling is a genius for creating the story and I personally would like to thank her for bringing joy to my life with the books and movies.
Loser: You're going to pay $30 for a stupid book??
Healthy Obsessed Me: Thats funny, I thought you just called my pride and joy stupid. Ya know what else is funny? My foot in your ass!

A seven-book series by author J.K Rowling about 'The Boy Who Lived'. HP is well-written and shouldn't be compared to Lord of the Rings being they are not even in the same category.
The fifth and latest Harry Potter book, Order of the Phoenix, sold over 5 million copies the day it came out.

A series of books that are highly criticized by illiterate and utterly STUPID morons. No, Harry Potter is not a rip-off of LOTR. I'm reading LOTR now and they are different books.
Wow. I didn't know that stupidity exsisted at the level of the people who diss the books.

Actually, a really good series of books by J.K. Rowling.
Although Lord of the Rings is entirely original, and very good, it's no good for young kids because of the slower-moving plot.
Harry Potter is better for younger people.

The five books out now are:
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

There are two more books left to come.
My cousin is obsessed with Harry Potter, she actually makes out with his picture >gag<
