When did you first read the series? How old were you? Did you read them in order? Before or after the movies?

I first read the books when Prizoner of Azkaban was released on DVD. After watching the film i was overly eager to find out what happend next! I just hated the wait between the rest of the series in order to read the last book.

Oh wow, I feel like Harry Potter has always been part of my life. Both of my first real experiences come from Philosopher's Stone. 

  • Watching the film - I was very young, and the movie magic was so immersive to me that I genuinely believed it was being played live (I was quite young). I remember the bright colours, Draco's attitude and the joy I felt with the trio besting Voldemort.
  • Reading the book - It was the week before my 11th birthday and I was just starting to really get into reading. When I was in school, we used to have morning and afternoon tutor which only lasted about 10/15 minutes each time. I started reading on the Monday, and except for one Thursday tutor session (due to the year group assembly) and finished it on the Friday afternoon. It was the first time I'd read a long book (before that it had been rainbow magic and tiara club books). It was just magical.

My first experience with Harry Potter was when I was just seven years old. I was stuck at my uncle's house for whatever reason, and super bored. He had come back from a trip to the store with a book, The Sorcerer's Stone . I was hesitant about it at first, being my typical stubborn 7-year-old self, but I grudgingly accepted the book and finished it in the same night! I blew through the whole series over the course of just a few months, lugging the heavy books to and from school every day. I watched all of the movies that had already been released in a binge marathon with my dad once I'd finished the books, and I saw the very last movie in theaters on my birthday. I was totally obsessed, and for my tenth birthday my parents had taken me to the newly opened Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios.

Wow, this brings me back...

 

I was about 9 or 10 years old when my mom bought me the Afrikaans version of the Philosopher's Stone. She read it first and then after hearing how amazing the story was from her, I gave it a try and I loved it immediately.

When the first film came out after that, we went to watch it and I was hooked. I begged my older sister to take me to watch it at the movies again, but I only had the chance to watch the first film once in the cinemas. 

After that, I first read the book and then watched the films. I don't even know how many times I've read the books and watched the movies, but I will always continue doing so, no matter what. Every time is like the first time for me and the series is a big part of my life growing up.

      Hi, this is my first thing for the introduction, and I just want to say that, Harry Potter is really the best thing I’ve ever read and the movies were quite good, so I just wanted to say that Harry Potter for me is just lovely, I love that they all ended up happily ever after, after everything they had to go through, I feel as though that implies that there is always light at the end of the tunnel, idk, anyway if anybody sees this then hi!!!
