Last night i went out with my friends to watch "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix". The film was good. And damn Harry Potter has grown into a fine young man! LOL! overall, i enjoyed the movie..good one. For almost a decade now, Harry Potter mania has been with us. Yes! everybody's excited about. Everybody talks about it. If you don't know who Harry Potter is, it's like you came from another planet..LOL! It's like a disease that infected the whole world and made everybody go crazy!So if you're worried that you might be infected by the Harry Potter fever..here are the 6 signs:1) You've read the books more times than Hermione has aced an exam. 2) You've learned another language just so you didn't have to wait a few months for the book to be translated to your native tongue. 3) You have permanently tattooed Harry Potter iconography onto your body. 4) You have played Quidditch....in a video game...in real life. 5) You have been stocking up with tissues for months in anticipation for the final book in the series "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows". 6) There is a room in your house that looks like it belongs to Hogwarts. Infected or not? Me, i love Harry Potter but i've never read the book and i don't go crazy about it. So therefore, i'm not infected.:)

At least Number 1 is my case. I read all books (except Number 7) about three times. You are right, it is a disease and I fear everybody gets crazy, many of them knowing about Harry's magical world only through the films. I'd say you should read the books. Now that you already know the plot, perhaps you get away with only a slight fever. Although I confess to be affected by Rowling's magical world, I wonder whether the Plottermania will last, or whether next generations will only have a mild smile when thinking of how their grannies got crazy because of the adventures of an adolescent wizard who was born to save his world.

I reckon it will go on forever. It's been going on for how many years now and still people go crazy about. The Harry Potter mania will be one of the best stories all the grannies will be enjoying telling their grandchildren yrs from now. And you can now imagine the smile on their faces on how their grannies went crazy about the boy named Harry Potter. hehehehe

Hahaha, I'm not infected!! But I've read each of the books many times, I'm even writing a Snape fanfiction!!! I've also enjoyed the movies, though I think Order of the Phoenix could have been better... Still, I think we shouldn't really expect the movies to be just like the books in many ways, because it is really difficult to adapt a book into a screenplay... specially when the books have more than 600 pages!! Right now I'm reading Deathly Hallows, and I'm already a bit disappointed :S but anyway, it's Rowling's world and we must respect it, but damn!!!!

I don't own any of the books at all. Honestly, i never heard of Harry Potter until i saw the first movie. LOL! (i felt like i came from other space) My husband keeps on telling me i should buy the books, i told him i'll wait til i see all the movies. I dunno..but i just prefer it that way...maybe if i hadn't started watching the movie, i would have read the books first. I did the same with the Lord of the Ring, my brother bought the books after i saw the first movie...i didn't open it til i saw all the movies... It is really disappointing if you expect something best and it comes out only better. I wonder what would others feel when the next movies comes out.....

I purchased the new Harry Potter book today! I've read all of them and have seen all of the movies. I don't really think I have the "fever" though. I've had the book for about five hours now and haven't opened it yet. I'll do that tomorrow. :)

I have never seen any Harry Potter movie nor have I read any of the books! I have just never been interested in it. However, I may see if my library has some of the books and give it a try.

We own two sets of the books, and have all the DVD's. My son picked up 2 copies at Walmart last night, at about 12:15 and they had already sold 200 copies. This is not a big city either. My son stayed up most of the night reading and my husband started his this morning. I will wait until they are done and then read it myself. My husband was disappointed with the 6th book, so I haven't read that one yet. My son and husband have read all of them at least 3 times. People all over write to my husband and they ask his opinions on what they have written about Harry Potter. It was through Rowlings' website that my husband found out about others that Rowlings' thought could tell the stories of the Wizarding World. He enjoys reading and responding to this writers. So, yes we are infected:)

My son is 19 years old, but has been reading the books since he was 10 years old. My husband and son are always comparing notes.
