hmmm i dont really remember but i guess that imy teacher said i needed to read book to improve my english(reminds me of fleur) and either with my own choice or my mothers i took the first book and read it(i was 11/12 at that time)

well it cast a spell over me and i was eager to read all books and then one by pone i completed the 2nd, 3rd, 4th,5th,and 6th book

and i had to wait for 1 whole year for the final book

and i can tell you the suspense killed me

Nice topicTongue.
Well I started reading the book after the release of part four.  My cousin is a Harry Potter fan. One day I saw her read part four and I teased her about reading such a stupid book in which a boy is fighting with a dragon ( you know, the cover of book four). It wasnt like I didnt read books. I was just more into romantic novels than fiction, and couldnt imagine that books with such far-from-reality-stuffs could be worth readingLOL.

Then when Harry Potter and the Philosopher Stone movie came out, my cousin's younger sister ( who, by the way also joined me in teasing her sister) forced me to watch the movie. I was reluctant, but still watched it. After watching the movie I became interested in it, so I borrowed the books from my cousin and started reading. As I proceeded from one book to another, I realized that the books werent stupid but I wasShocked.

My cousin couldnt lend me book one and three, so I read book two first and then four. Soon I became addicted to Harry Potter series and went to the shop to buy them. Then I read the first and the third book. I still remember those days. I would sleep at two in the night after reading book three and get up at five in the morning and continue reading it. I would eat breakfast silently and even drink milk, as my sole concentration was in  reading the great Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which was held tightly on my other hand. My parents  became more concerned about  me.  Thanks to my sister, who assured them that it was just a phase, they didnt take me to a psychiatristDisapprove.

Then as book  five, six and seven came out. I managed to have them the first day of the release and read them all day long. So this is my story, which by the way is quite long. If I had written my English essays with such dedication and love as I have written this then my teachers would have been pleasedEmbarrassed.

P.S. I had to start wearing glasses after I adopted the habit of reading Harry Potter. But I dont regret it. It was all for a good cause, my friends, good cause......

Cheers
Melissa
