I love the Harry Potter world for the simple fact that it's an escape from every day life. It gives me a chance to let my imagination run wild while I read or watch the movies. I'm able to ask "What if this world actually existed? How would that change my life to get a letter from Hogwarts?"

I really like the mystery of the entire Harry Potter world and I am a single child so, the characters became my friends. I really love the messages in the text and I just love the characters.

I started watching/reading HP at the age of 9, and ever since then I've been enchanted and intrigued by the story. With the movies not always releasing consistently, I felt as though I had caught up with Harry's growing up and always saw the trio as friends. A pretty great childhood and teenagehood.

I also like the fact that it's an escape from my day-to-day life. I love immersing myself in the stories, legends and creatures of the world. It's a very well created universe, with lots to think about and learn about!
That's why I'm so excited about all the new movies and things to come out- even more hours of immersion to come! I've already signed up to get a copy of the FanFilm 'Mudblood and The Book of Spells' when it comes out!

I started reading the HP books because my neice told me they were trying to ban these wonderful books from schools. Of course this was many years ago. So I started reading to see what all the hub bub was about. Boy did those people have it wrong. I fell in love with Harry and his world. I could escape my world and join their's anytime I picked up one of those wonderful books.

Because I grew up in that world! I was only 7 when I first found out that I could be a wizard. I'd waited until my 11th birthday. Well, I didn't receive an acceptance letter but it didn't matter because I was already in that world. I knew all about Hogwarts. I bought a wand and I was a wizard. Since then, noone has ever called me a muggle because being a potterhead kinda means being a wizard. I like the world of Harry Potter because it made me who I am. It made me someone magical.

I waited for mine too! Kept an unusually sharp eye on the skies, but no owls came my way!

I love the HP series because when I read or watch the movie, I fall into my own world where there's no one but me and the characters. I also love it because even though Harry, Ron and Hermione are witches and wizards we can relate to them on everyday things that happen in life! Also the magic, castle and spells are wicked awesome!

I have always loved reading and the idea of magic is just so enticing. The characters are so normal and believable (despite that they are witches and wizards). Harry Potter was my entire childhood and Harry, Ron, and Hermione were my friends.

I was fascinated by both the movies and the books as a child. I've been loving it since then really.

I love the world of Harry Potter because I imagine myself as part of the book when I read. I'd love to be a part of the magical world of Witchcraft and wizardry in JKR's Universe. What could be more wonderful than magic? Nothing.

I used to be such a feeble fan. When I was seven or eight, I enjoyed the first movie and tried to get into the first book, but I was seven or eight with ADHD and convinced myself that I didn't need to read it, as I had already seen the movie. Then when I was sixteen I got into the movies again after watching CoS with my friends, but it only held for about a week before I was back to Batman and Justice League. But then a year later I watched both DH movies and declared that DH2 was my favorite movie of all time. I borrowed it from a friend and watched it over and over and over again for hours (because I have no life), and I started getting into fanfiction and before I knew it, I'd bought the eight-disc collection and had fallen head over heels in love with Daniel Radcliffe.

tl;dr: I'm an on-again, off-again, on-for-life Potterhead.

The person that got me obsessed with Harry Potter was my dad. I had been off of school sick for about a week and dad took me food shopping, I was walking down the book aisle and saw the first four books in a boxset (back when it was only the first four out) and he brought them for me to cheer me up. Ever since that moment I have been pretty obsessed.

Gryffindor Falling in love of the wizarding world

I was working at the local library and a shipment of new books arrived. The library ladies didn't know the author or the book or even what it was about. One of them handed it to me to peruse on my lunchbreak and I was hooked. I had to have more! Did she write more? Would they make the movie? I was in love with the wizarding world and helped others fall in love with it too. It was so awesome to read something so fresh and new. I love all the characters, even the bad ones, because without the bad ones, we would not have the new ones to love just the same.

I love it because you can escape your own real life problems just by reading the books, and it just isn't a book where Harry and his friends go to a magic school, they face problems just like us! So wizard or not you're still going to face problems, and that's what helped me alot when I was upset is realizing through reading the books that I wasn't alone, and I love the adventures and friendship along the way, but mainly it helps people understand that they're not alone in going through burdens and struggles.

I love the world of harry potter because it takes me away from reality to this magical place where things can be fixed and you don't have to feel completely alone and helpless all the time. It changes and shapes your life when you read the books.

I was driving by a bookstore when #5 was coming out, took me 2 days to find #5 and also get a set of #1-4 paperbacks. Read 1-4 in a week, 5 in 1-1/2 days & I was totally hooked.
I crafted my own designs for Pillows, etc on plastic canvas for my niece & myself. Started to dress stuffed animals as wizards. I found SS in 2004 and my HP craft group in 2006. And I have written & gotten autographs, since then. I'm still hooked, now more than ever. I'm glad I found SS again!
