  I am losing interest in Harry
Updated 24 January 2004, 10.22

Lu tells us how she feels about outgrowing Harry Potter

"I was once a hopelessly devoted Harry Potter fan.

I'm not saying I don't like Harry anymore, but I think I'm just...getting too old for him.

Dedicated fan

I was obsessed with the HP series.

I plastered every picture I could find of him on my walls and made an extremely thick scrapbook of articles I found in random magazines and papers.

I tried out for the part of Cho Chang at least five times and I fell asleep to the soundtracks every night.

I even made my own Harry Potter teddy bear.

Like everyone else, I did everything possible to busy myself before the release of Order of the Phoenix.

When the long-awaited book came out, I read it and loved it.

I swore to myself that I would always be an avid Harry Potter fan.

But then, school started back up and there was a time when I was just too busy for Harry Potter.

When Thanksgiving break rolled by, I returned to Harry, but somehow, it just felt oddly different.

Moving on

My family is planning to move soon, so I had to pull down all of my Harry Potter posters.

I've neglected my CD player for months.

I used to read Harry Potter nightly because I enjoyed it, but now I read it because I feel obliged to do so.

I had promised to never let go of Harry, but here I am, letting go.

I never thought I would be doing this, but I've realised that I'm losing interest in Harry Potter and am going to move onto better things.

After you read this, think about it: Do you really like Harry Potter? Or are you losing interest deep down inside, but refuse to let yourself admit it?"
