FOTW

ARYNA Age 17, Singapore   First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? First off, I became a Harry Potter fan when I was 9. My mum actually brought home the first book, HP & The Sorceror’s stone. I was actually quite skeptical to actually read it until I read the sypnosis and told myself to give it a try. Anyway, the cover art was quite captivating ! I read the book in ... Read More »

FOTW

ASHLEY Age 17, United States   First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? When I was in the first grade, my teacher Mrs. Rowan gave me the first book because she knew I liked fantasy books, such as the Magic Treehouse books. I was immediately obsessed and read through the books as soon as I could get my hands on them. I shared the books with my friends, and we would play ... Read More »

FOTW

KEVIN Age 28, United States   First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? After barely making it through the first movie, and falling asleep during the second, a very good friend of mine told me to read the books first. Convenient, since Deathly Hallows was just released. I borrowed the first book from her and before I was finished, had bought the first three books, and the other four soon followed. Imagine ... Read More »

FOTW

JANAKI Age 17, United States   First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? I think I was in Kindergarten when the first book came out. I remember my mom trying to read it to me then, and neither of us had any idea what was going on. I remember that over the years, people tried to get me to start reading the books, but I was always bored after the first chapter. ... Read More »

FOTW

MICHELE Age 17, United States   First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? I became a fan when I was in kindergarten and struggled through Philosopher’s Stone. There were two problems: the fact that I was barely six years old and not capable of reading full-length books on my own, and the fact that I somehow ended up with the British version. The fact that I stuck with the series despite the ... Read More »

FOTW

GLENN Age 16, United States   First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? This one is a bit embarrassing. To be honest, I was not a fan of the series early on. I believe it was in 2000 when my Grandmother bought my Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. I do not recall actually reading it for a few years. I remember that I went to go see the film adaptation for ... Read More »

FOTW

AIMEE Age 13, New Zealand   First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? I actually wasn’t a fan until relatively recently. I don’t have one of those stories about how my parents or perhaps some other relative read the books to me before bed and I grew to love them. My Harry Potter fan story begins when I was five. My parents had rented the Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone DVD. ... Read More »

FOTW

HAILEY Age 16, United States   First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? When Sorcerers Stone came out in theatres in 2001 (I was seven or eight) I went to the theatre with my cousins and aunt to watch the movie. I was convinced that Hogwarts and magic were real after seeing it. Later that night, my cousin and I made “potions”-we basically mixed a bunch of perfumes and stuff together in ... Read More »

FOTW

FAITH Age 15, United States First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? I became a Potter fan in fourth grade, so six years ago (Holy cow, it’s been a long time!). I wasn’t a huge reader, but I didn’t necessarily hate reading either. I was in an accelerated Language Arts class, and every month we had to do a Book It! project. You would read a book of a certain genre and ... Read More »

FOTW

MADISON Age 12, United States First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? Actually, I was not a Harry Potter fan at first. When the fifth movie came out, I remember telling my mom that Harry Potter was stupid and unrealistic. But in September of 2009, I was watching SS with my mom, and she got upset and told me off for distracting her. For my “punishment” I was told to read the ... Read More »
