Re: Welcome! Introduce Yourself Here!

Hello Everyone! I'm 14, and I love the Harry Potter books. I've seen all the movies in theater except for the 5th, so I guess I became interested right before the 1st movie came out. I have read the whole series multiple times (mostly 4, 5, 6, and 7, though), and the 7th book is my favorite.

Hello

My name is Hannah. I started to read Harry Potter at about 2nd grade and finished in 4th grade. I loved the whole idea of a little boy who didn't know anything about magic to become the most powerful wizard in history. I loved every sentence. My favorite character was Hermionie. I went to see all the movies and can't wait to see the last one. :smileyhappy:

Greetings All!

My name is Krissy! I've been reading Harry Potter since 2002. I actually saw the Sorcerer's Stone before I began reading the books. I was an education major and for an assignment, I had to read Prisoner of Azkaban (sp) and create a unit on it. I have seen all of the films and can't wait for part 2 of film 7 to come out. I'm interested in how Harry develops a social life because he didn't have one when he lived with his aunt and uncle. I like seeing how he's evolved into a great wizard. I don't have a favorite character, but I do like how Harry, Hermoine, and Ron work together.

Re: Welcome! Introduce Yourself Here!

Hi everyone! I'm Lauren and I'm about as nerdy as they come when it comes to Harry Potter. Ive own every movie (except the current Deathly Hallows Part 1 of course), have read each book multiple times... I also took a class at North Georgia University in the summer of 2007 on Harry Potter. I was placed in the Animagus group where we compared the British and American versions of the books and the book to the films. I was sorted into Ravenclaw (my house won second in Quidditch- yes, we played- and first for the House cup. As a prize, I won a hand-crafted wand, holly with a phoenix feather core. You guessed it, Harry's wand). I also went to London with the class for a Harry Potter tour and my beloved has hesitantly agreed to the possiblity of getting married at the Hogwarts in Harry Potter's Wizarding World in Orlando and having the Unbreakable Vow performed :womanvery-happy: I'm excited to see what everyone else here has to say about the series and anxious to participate as well!

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us- Gandalf the Grey

Re: Welcome! Introduce Yourself Here!

Hi! I'm a big fan of the Harry Potter books, and sometimes the movies :smileyvery-happy: If I were to pick favorites, my favorite book would be Chamber of Secrets with Deathly Hallows P1 for movie. I also love Tales of Beedle the Bard.

 

Has anyone here ever been to an HP symposium? I've been to... 3? I think that's it. Lemme know if you have!

Re: Welcome! Introduce Yourself Here!

Hey!! I'm new here, and have been a Harry Potter fan since I was a little girl. Well, actually thanks to those books, my family calls me today a "book eater" since I pretty much read anything I can get my hands on. It's great when books like that change people lives, making them read more and become more interested in literature. Love the series and the movies!!:smileywink:

Re: Welcome! Introduce Yourself Here!

Hello,

I dislike being a 'muggle' and wish I had received a letter from Hogwarts when I was young. I love the 'Harry Potter' books and have read them all at least twice.  I also have all the movies except Part 1: "H.P. and The Deathly Hallows".  I have never experienced the love of a series of books like I have experienced with J.K. Rowling's 'Harry Potter' books.  I hope she isn't through with Harry.  Looking forward to communicating with other muggles who feel like they know Harry and friends.

Re: Welcome! Introduce Yourself Here!

Hello! My name is Courtney and I am very new to this site. I absolutely love the Harry Potter books. I am an elementary teacher and hope to incorporate these books a lot whenever I get my own classroom. I believe these books teach more than just expanding our imaginations and I am so glad the Harry Potter books are a part of my life.

Hello everyone!  I'm John.  I'm 40 years old and I'll tell anyone flat out that the Harry Potter Series is the best series of books I've ever read.  Any time J.K. Rowling answered a question, she left me with three more.  Smart, funny, quirky, and well developed.  I love Harry's world. Thanks!

Re: Welcome! Introduce Yourself Here!

I am a AVID Harry Potter fan.  Right after my divorce I was at home one weekend with no children and no books to read.  I picked up my son's copy of the Sorceror's Stone and by the time they got home Sunday night, I was halfway through the Prisoner of Azkaban.

 

I can't begin to tell you how many times I've read the series, watched the movies, etc.  JK Rowling is a friggin genious!!!!!

 

I'm also a huge Severus Snape / Slytherin fan.  After many unsuccessful attempts to win an eBay auction I finally got a really cool Slytherin messenger bag that I carry all the time.  The other day the cutest little girl in the library stopped me and said "Excuse me Miss, you know they are the bad guys, right?"  HILARIOUS!!!!

 

At any rate, I'm glad I found the group, look forward to checking out all the posts.

Welcome, Tika! Thanks for sharing your story! I think we all feel the same way. And the girl in the library story was hilarious!
