UNDATED (AP) -- Just past midnight tonight, fans of Harry Potter can get their hands on the final book in the J.K. Rowling series.
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" will reveal whether the boy wizard lives or dies.
19-year-old Sarah Harper, a student at Centenary College of Louisiana says it's been comforting to have Harry around for nearly a decade. She says when you connect with a character in the book "it's like he's your best friend, almost."
Makenzie Greenblatt, a 20-year-old student at the University of Washington, began reading Harry Potter in 1999. She got the first book in the series for Hanukkah.
One fan was asked what Potterphiles will do now that there will be no more books. The answer: "read them again and again and again."
