Re: How long have you been a fan of Harry Potter?

I jumped on the Hogwarts Express really late in the game. I didn't become a fan till about 2010, I wasn't devoted or anything but sat with my husband and watched the films on DVD with him. For many years I was heavily involved in a conservative Christian sect that shunned Harry Potter because "it teaches evil and witchcraft and the Bible forbids it". So, I listened to those in higher authority over me and didn't give it a 2nd thought.
Eventually I left that sect and began thinking for myself (wooohooo) and that's when I popped in the HP DVD's we had and began watching them to form my own opinions and loved them!
Hubby and I seen DH 1 and 2 together in theaters and between 2011 and 2012 I was able to buy all the books and am currently reading and re-reading them and am sold.

I'm not ashamed to say it..I'm 31 and am addicted to Harry Potter. I can't get enough.

JK Rowling has an imagination I can only dream of. She's amazing!

Hm, let's see... I think I was 12 when PS/SS came out, but I didn't read them until years later (at 12 I thought myself above children's books, haha). I picked them up when I was around 17 (I think?) a month or two after GoF came out. Been a huge fan ever since.

Re: How long have you been a fan of Harry Potter?

After visiting the WWoHP in February 2011, I decided I should watch the movies. I've been a fan ever since. I read the first 3 (?) books in high school but sadly never finished. I'm going through them again now.

Re: How long have you been a fan of Harry Potter?

It was eight years old when I first checked out a Harry potter book from the school library. I remember the way everyone looked at me whispering things along the lines of "what is she thinking?" I had been a fan since I was 8, and I'm 20 now.

Gosh i cant even remember when I became a fan. I watched the first couple of movies then began buying the books. I'm guess maybe 1999. So...18 years?

Re: How long have you been a fan of Harry Potter?

So I was a at Redstone Arsenal, bored out of my mind. So, I borrowed a copy of POA one night. After watching it twice one that night, I was sad it was over, wondered why it took me so long to get interested, wanted to know everything about the story, background, historical and theorize which direction the story was going! Not to mention being hopelessly in love with Hermione! I was sooooo hooked! This was summer 2005. I'm still into it, 12 years and counting! I may forget a little here and there, but I always come back to it!
WHAAAT!
