MADDY Age 21, United States/Argentina   First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? My mom started reading the books to me when they first came out – I could read at that point, but it was always fun to just listen. Unfortunately, my sister got to the books beforehand and insisted on her pronunciations of certain words; because of that I thought for the longest time that it was Voldremont and Slythereen. ...

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 »

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.

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 »
