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.

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 »

SERENA Age 15 – Canada   First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? I first received Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone from my Aunt and Uncle for my 6th birthday when I was in Senior Kindergarten. I looked at the cover, thought it looked boring, and it stayed abandoned on my shelf for awhile. It seems unbelievable that I could ever have thought Harry Potter would be dreary! Silly me. It’s ...

ALEXIS Age 12 – United States   First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan? I was around eight years old, my cousins had read all the books that were out and highly recommeded them to me and my twin sister.

I found that rereading made the ending clearer, ... Read More »
