To Chimpy - I think it'll turn her of HP for a while, all that Quidditch, but thankee just the same for the applause. :D

To srivathsan - Yep, that's why I used 'guru'! :P (I've got an Indian friend at school although I think I picked up the term elsewhere anyways. I was going to say her HP 'Yoda' but that's WAY too SW to link it to Potter things...)

Okay, mods-ies, I know we're off-topic here, so I'll be shutting my mouth now and keeping it shut until we get back on topic.... :quiet:

Actually, Americans use guru a lot.

I actually have gotten one of my teachers to read the books.

It's off topic, but I got my scarf from this website. 02:D It's an excellently made scarf and looks fabulous. The only thing is, well, they are in the original style of scarf. The ones the kids wore in the first two movies only. You may want something different. 13B)

Well, I was pretty young when I started HP. I don't remember when I 1st watched HP, but I got so excited and watched the whole thing with all the adults sleeping except for my mom because she had to watch it with my cousins. I thought it was pretty good, but didn't yet notice what a legend it was. I then read and watched every book and movie about HP there was once and then got hooked.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/laughing.gif) I don't know why, but I got a vision of you kissing a HP book! Anyway, the first time I watched it we were just scanning the Pay Per View channels and we saw Harry potter. My dad read the info and he asked us if we wanted to watch it. I was a little reluctant, but after the movie I was totally hooked.

I was in grade 2 or 3 when the first book (PS) came out in Australia. I remember mum took me to Angus and Robertsons (which is a bookshop) and told me I could get one book, any book that I wanted.

Now, as a child I read Fantasy, fantasy and more fantasy. So when mum showed me a book about wizards, spells and magic, that was the book I was determined to get. Neither Mum nor I, could know at that stage how great the Harry Potter fanominer would be, but we were both hooked from then on. Eventually (as happens at schools) everyone started reading them. I remember feeling so proud that I had read them before everyone else (I know how incredibly sad).

As it turned out that one amazing book, shortly became an international fanomina which was great for me, as other people then read them & I had other people (outside Mum and I) to talk about it with.

Yes, I was one of those fans that brought tickets to the Australian premiere of the first movie at 12:00am and yes sadly, I was one of the people that dressed up. I pre-orderd books 4-6 to make sure I got them straight away.

So in summary, I was a fan from the very first book. Yes sad, I know...

Actuall, that isn't sad. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) I would be really proud if I were you. I feel ashamed that I got into Harry Potter so late. I got hooked on the movies before the book. I actually wanted to be in the movie and then my friend in school introduced the books to me and I got hooked on the story.

Both actually... I heard about the first movie and I decided to read the book before I saw the movie. I became obsessed and read them all numerous times. Now, people all think I'm crazy because I talk about reading the seventh book like it's my life... I mean... It is, but that's not the point. So mostly it was the books, but the movie sparked it, I guess.

after the first book i was hooked. although it took me long enough to read it. when i was reading the first book my little sister and cousin thought it was funny to take my bookmark out. so i think that it took me 10 times to actually read the book and i was about 7 or 8 maybe. after the book came out i waited eagerly for the next book to come out and then the movie. i always like to watch how certain parts are portrayed in the movie (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif) and still i am upset that nearly headless nicks deathday party wasn't in the movie (CoS). my list can go on and on as many of yours can.

It was funny because I was also around 7 or 8 during the first movie! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) Anyway, I told my mom I wanted to be in the movie and we watched the second movie at the iMax and she's all, like, see now your in it! I sorta gave her a reluctant smile, but I enjoyed it all the same!
