Fell in love with harry potter when i was 5... I saw the first film before i read the books, but that's when the obsession began! My mum and elder sister were going to watch it in the cinema, and I (at the last second), decided I wanted to go too (not knowing either what film we were going to see; nor how dramatically this event would change my life forever). My sister tried to convince me not to go, as I would be 'scared' by the ghosts. How glad I am I ignored that! Over two thirds of my life have henceforth been devoted to this wonderful story.
It was my partner who recently suggested i find a harry potter forum to go on (since i never stop talking about it) and i realised what a great idea that would be. Yes i am as sad as i sound... but it's what I love so who cares?!
