Fan of the Week: Duncan – November 21, 2010

FOTW

DUNCAN Age 18, United States First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? It wasn’t something that I discovered for myself. As a matter of fact, I kind of stole it from my brother. He was reading the books from the beginning, and when the films began coming out, I decided to “borrow” his copies in order to catch up in time to watch them. They hooked me quick and hard, and I’ve ... Read More »

FOTW

CAITLIN Age 19, Canada First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? This is kind of a funny story, because my first experience with Harry Potter was not a wonderful one… I was first introduced to Harry Potter by Brad. Brad, name changed to protect his identity, had a crush on me in fourth grade (1999). I was eight years old, had never heard of Harry Potter, and all I knew was that ... Read More »

MORGAN Age 21 – United States   First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? I became a Harry Potter fan in 2000. I was in the fifth grade and my teacher would read to us every day. The day she started reading Harry Potter and the Sorceror’s Stone, I enjoyed it so much that I went ahead and ordered the book and had finished it before the rest of the class. When ... Read More »

CAITLIN Age 20 – Canada   First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? How I became a Harry Potter fan has a bit of a story to it. The beginning of my Harry Potter addiction is actually a funny story full of coincidences. It’s all my mom’s fault. When she tells me I am insane for liking Harry Potter, I remind her that it was her fault because she bought me one ... Read More »

BEATRIJS Age 16 – Netherlands   First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? I became a Harry Potter fan when I was about six years old. I had heard about the movie (Philosopher’s Stone) and I wanted to see it, but my mother wouldn’t let me, unless I had read the book first. So obviously, I wanted to read the book. At first I wasn’t that enthusiastic about it and I stopped ... Read More »

ROONIL Age 20 – Canada   First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? 1999: I had just moved in from Iran to Malaysia. I was 9-years-old and still learning my “hi” from my “high”. My English was very wheezy to say the least, and to say I would like to eat an apple was already a feat. One day, my English teacher from Grade 5 brought in some books to sell in ... Read More »

ERIN Age 16 – United States   First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? I became a Harry Potter fan in third grade when the first movie came out. My older sister had read the Sorcerer’s Stone and since the movie was coming out soon, I figured I would try it too. I was instantly hooked by the magic, and a few books, movies, and midnight release parties later, here I am. ... Read More »

FOTW

CAROLINE Age 16 – United Kingdom   First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? I first read the books when I was 7 because everyone at school used to play ‘Harry Potter’ games and I didn’t know the story. Somehow I always ended up as Snape which when I first read the books I thought was a great insult, but now I’m really happy about that! I remember I was always obsessed ... Read More »

LIA Age 14 – United States   First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? I became a Harry Potter fan in kindergarten when my after-school teacher read us all the book and then I went and saw the movie when it first came out. At first I was not really impressed, I liked the story and I read the books as they came out but I was not a huge fan. One ... Read More »

RACHEL Age 16 – United States   First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? The first time I read the books in second grade I was hooked! My friends was reading SS and she was always talking about how good it was and she was always telling me to read it, so since I liked to read, I got it from the library and loved it. Then I began to spread the ... Read More »
