Hi from a new Potter fan!

Postby Whispered » October 24th, 2015, 1:24 pm

Hi all

Thought I'd say hello. I'm a 36 yo guy from the UK and I've recently discovered just how amazing the Harry Potter books are!

I'd seen the first couple of movies ages ago, but I'd never read the books or seen the rest of the movies.

I've been listening to a lot of audio books lately ( I do love to read books but I've 4 young kids so finding the time can be difficult!) and I thought why not give The Philosopher's Stone a blast.

That was 9 days ago and now I'm about 3/4 of the way through The Goblet of fire. Im lucky because I can listen to books for part of my day in work, I've also found myself listening to the books when I'm driving, cooking, doing night feeds, and pretty much whenever I can!

I've always liked magic and fantasy type of books, but these have really grabbed me. There's just something special about them.

I'm having to try and stay away from anything that will contain spoilers so I'll probably not be browsing the site too much until I've finished all the books (which at the rate I'm getting through them shouldn't be too long!)

I've also got the blu ray boxed set of all the movies arriving in the next few days. I'm much more of a book than movie person, but I'm really excited to watch these, although I'll only be watching each movie once I've finished the appropriate book.

Hey Whispered and welcome to PFF :D

Also I guess I should say welcome to the Wizarding World. I kinda recently discovered Harry Potter myself and I can understand your desire to avoid spoilers.

If you want to read or interact on here I can recommend three areas that should be spoiler free: the role playing thread (it is set in an alternate universe so shouldn't have any spoilers), the capsule machine (a place where you can collect pixel figures based on elements, characters, items and books), and the PFF classroom.

Yes. There is something magical about them. I've always been a fan of fantasy books (or any genre of books actually) but only a few books have found a special spot in my heart like Harry Potter has.

I hope to see you around the board and wish you fun while you finish up the series. :)
