The end of an era

It's been a decade, but now the countdown to the final movie is nearly over. It's premiering here at midnight and I am eagerly anticipating it. I've had my 12:04 cinema ticket for the past 3 or so months. I actually feel sorry for the cinema workers because the cinema I'm going to is having a massive marathon of a run for the final film tomorrow. The cinema is going to stay open 24 hours showing a session every hour throughout the day.

Even though I was practically grown up when I discovered Harry, I've read all the novels and seen the films. I remember picking up the first one (and I didn't even know it was the first one, so I was lucky there) in college when the first three were available and quickly devoured those.

It's going to be sad when the journey is over, but I'm hoping the movie definitely lives up to all the excitement and thrills that it definitely deserves to go out with a bang.

So when did you discover Harry (if you discovered him)? Is anyone excited to see this final film?

I confess I've neer read the books, but I have seen all of the movies.

I discovered Harry Potter in 2001 when the first movie came out. Back then, I didn't read. Once I saw the movie, I had to know more. I read the first four books and anxiously awaited the fifth book's release. I was 23.

I love the books and the movies! It's going to be sad and wonderful all at the same time!!!

I was introduced to Harry in my senior English class, back in 2004. I was 18. I traded a graduation party for seeing Prisoner of Azkaban opening weekend. I stand by my choice.

I just did a farewell to Potter post, too! It's like a club.... ;o)

I was an adult when first discovering the young Potter chap, but I've enjoyed the series, and I'm looking forward to reading them to my kids... before they steal them all for themselves.

I didn't discover Harry until the first 3 books were out. It was my first foray into reading MG fiction as an adult. :P

I probably started reading HP around middle school (Yes, I'm practically a baby), and I wasn't so enamored with them until the later books ,but Rowling really did create a brilliant world in a way that I hadn't experienced before. Plus the movies are just phenomenal.
