I'm currently reading the series for the second time and have just finished Order of the Phoenix, and while I've been reading other things and moving through the series much more deliberately this time, I have been enjoying it even more as I discover new things.

And then suffered the agonizing wait for book 5, then book 6 and finally book 7. All three I read straightaway after publication, even queeing up at the bookstore to get my copy on release date.

The books collected dust for weeks and then my father came down with a cold. He was in bed for a couple of days and finally ran out of books he hadn't read yet. He asked if any of us had something he could occupy himself with and I said "I do have those Harry Potter books, do you want to have them?". My father really liked the stories, my mother started reading them days after that and suddenly our discussions at lunch and dinner were all about Quidditch and Hogwarts. I got really annoyed because I hadn't got a clue what they were talking about. As soon as my mother had finished reading the first one I grabbed it, took it back to my room and fell in love with the story.
I also remember how there were reports about a possible movie. I didn't like this idea at all, because I feared they wouldn't do justice to the books. In the end I loved them.

I started to read HP PoA when GOF.(the book) first was released. So this was LOONG time ago.
I had never heard of HP before. But there where some classmates that was very eager about going to a book shop to get this book.
so we got there but all the GoF books had been sold out so we could only get the first three books. I bought the third one. Don't ask me why.
I read it and loved it and got the rest as soon as I could.

I'm kind of sad that I got late to the party, it's pretty awesome to see how people camped out to see the movies, stalked for autographs and pictures etc. Right now there aren't any franchises around that I feel enthusiastic about, but I'm not in the age group for rabid fandom anymore anyway I guess

i started reading them in 2003, after seeing the Sorcerer's Stone with my Mom and sister. the books are well written, and i really get into that world, love it. i am pretty satisfied with the films, in hindsight now, though i wish some storylines had made it into the films, like the apparating tests, Hermione's S.P.E.W., and others.

I was quite young at that time, about 10 or 11. It all started with CoS that my father found at the book store while he was looking for something good to make me read (he has always been a great reader and wanted to pass his passion on me too). The plot caught him, so he decided to buy it.
Although I didn't like CoS that much, I asked my father to buy me the others because I was curious to know the rest of the story. I fell in love with SS and PoA which I basically adored and I was so into the books I couldn't wait for the next ones to come out!
I passed down to my sister and my cousin my HP love and I remember we were so thrilled when we found about the movie!
Good old days...I miss them!

Yes, good old days. I miss them too.
I didn't start reading until after PoA the movie came out. My friend was the HP fan and I watched the movies with her. When we saw PoA, she cried because she was so upset with all the changes they made for the film. She hated the movie. So, I started reading, from PS, to see what I was missing. That was also about the time I found the EW.net forums. There was a lot of HP discussion back then, and it was a much more friendly environment than the HP specific forums. And Hermione was my favorite character, so yeah, I've been here ever since.

I was pretty young when I first started. Probably a few months after PS came out my parents bought me the book and tried to get me to read it. I was actually staunchly anti-HP back then because my brothers made fun of it (never having read it). When you're a young kid and your older brothers make fun of something you generally follow suit. My parents then bought the audio cassettes (no CD version back then O_O...) and got me to listen to them. Of course the rest is history, I fell in love with the books. As time passed my brothers came around to liking them too. I'm glad my parents had the foresight to introduce me to various books while I was growing it. It kindled my liking for literature and sparked my interest in writing creatively.

I started reading I think early 2000, when I was 7. My friend bought me PS for Christmas 1999 because she had been reading them for a couple of years and kept going on at them, but I'd kind of avoided them as they didn't sound like my sort of thing. But I read PS, and then it turned out my mum had bought the first 3-4 books already for me to read (I'm not sure exactly when in 2000 GOF came out, I'm not sure if I got that at the same time as the others or a bit later). I, of course, loved them, got up early to buy OotP and HBP on their release days and attended the midnight launch for DH. I miss those times.
