Harry Potter. To some, the name refers to a magical world of adventure and imagination - and a book, especially the latest, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, released July 8, that has broken sales records in bookstores across the country. To others, J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter books are just plain witchcraft and should be burned at the stake. They were the most frequently challenged of 1999, and among the 100 most frequently challenged books of the decade, according to a list recently released by the American Library Association's Office for Intellectual Freedom.
