I have been reading about Hogwarts since 1998 and was the same age as Harry. My fascination has never really declined and now I am a teacher passing on my passion for Potter to my students.
The arrival of each new book coincided with other important events in my life, both good and bad. This meant that I often fled into Potterworld to escape any problems I was going through and to this day is inextricably linked in my mind to the formative years of my life and means a great deal to me. I believe many, many people could claim the same and consider the books influential and of sentimental value to them.
