Yeah, sort of, it took me a while to get into it though. I got the 3rd book from my uncle, I read a bit of it but didn't get it (since I didn't know what it was about), so I just left it on the shelf. A supply teacher we had once loved HP, and read the first chapter of the first book out to us, but I can't concentrate well when other people read stuff out so I didn't listen. Then the 4th book came out and everyone was saying how huge it was...so I tried to read the 3rd again but still didn't like it. I don't know who gave us the 4th, but I read the first chapter and liked it, so I got the 1st book out from the school library...well...it was the first book I ever loved :D It took me 5 days to read in between school, and that's all I did when I got home. My parents were amazed I was reading so much XD And that's how it began.
