    Probably the most embarrassing for me was the pronunciation of primary characters' names like Hermione and Snape when the movies had yet to be released. For some reason I decided Snape was Snap and Hermione and Hermy-own.

    I was ten when I read book 1, mind you, but I'm glad the movie came out before I ever did a school presentation on one of the novels...

    I would have been in my second primary school, and I think in Year 6 (so about 11?) when book five came out (I think, it was a long time ago, and I can't be bothered checking the exact dates).

    Now, it was a nice school, and I was exceedingly tall for my age, so I was never bullied for being a nerd, but everyone was damn well aware I was. So it was a surprise that our teacher had scheduled the day for English lessons, and reading practice, so pretty much everyone just had their own copy for the day.

    He was a VERY kind man, and had brought his daughter's copy with him, along with all the previous ones (two of each), for any kids who didn't have their own copies, and organized a read-along for those who wanted that instead.

    Awesome teacher.

    That reminds me of what our school district called D.E.A.R days. Drop Everything And Read (I don't know how ubiquitous it was). We got to dress up in PJs, brink blankets and pillows, make pillow and blanket forts and all that, just to create cozy nooks to read. On those days, even the most rambunctious and wild kids chilled out. Even the kids who constantly decried reading settled down.

    Great days. Read Chamber of Secrets at one.
