My best friend forced the books down my throat. Haha, I owe her big time for that choking. Shout out to Lila! Thanks!

Ohh yeahh... And from there you were like "Cause of Artemis Fowl, doi!" and I was like "WTF? Is that a BIRD?" and... well, everyone knows the rest. XD

I was walking around my school library bored as heck. I told my friend this and they whipped the first one out of a shelf and gave it to me to read. :shock: that gut looks like he's just been poisoned or something. Like he just ate something disgusting...

My friend at my old school told me about it :D He also told me about neopets (I no longer play, but I was a very rabid player for a while). The dude read Wicked in fifth grade (if you have ever read it you know what I'm talking about) Him, me, and the dude called Thadeus (we called him "Tee") ruled the school :D The school of sixtey kids. . .

I found out when I was in fifth grade, and that was the only fantasy book left that WASN'T Harry Potter. It was book 2, and I've been addicted ever since.

I was on Vakay in Miami at my cousins house, (We were house sitting) and I got really bored. So I looked at the bookshelf to find Artemis Fowl just waiting to be read.

I was at a library and was doing the summer reading program a few years ago. At the end I got a free book. There weren't many books left, so I picked Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception. After I read it, I got the other books in the series and read them, too. Now I'm an Artemis Fowl Fan! :D

I found out by Artemis Fowl by complete accident. One fateful early Saturday morning, my mom forced me to come with her to Wal*mart. While she searched for clothes (*groan*), I just walked around, bored out of my mind. By chance, I spotted a golden book lying on top of a pile of t-shirts. The color was pretty, (and it was shiny!) so I picked it up and read the back. It sounded interesting, so I read the first page as well, and then the next, and next, etc. By the time my mom was done, I was halfway through the book. Unfortunately, my mom wouldn't buy the book for me, so I had to wait a whole year until the local library got the book to read the ending. ^^

Unfortunately, I flipped through the graphic novel one day at the library when it just happened to not be on loan (every single time I tried to borrow that book after that day, it was ALWAYS, ALWAYS on loan), so now I have another obssessiion to add to my steadily growing list.

Yeah, I also begged my mom to buy the time paradox, and now people are clamoring to read it.
What? I am so not psycho.

When I got the third book for christmas long ago, I read it once and liked it but forgot it later and didn't think about it much. Then when I got the most recent one this christmas I thought, I read this to see if it's good (I didn't think it would be so interesting) but after I read the first page, I got more hooked then I could ever imagine, I had a hard time to stop reading and get some sleep, (I read in bed before I sleep and some nights I could read for over 4 hours) and became a big Artemis Fowl fan and started to search around on the net of as much information as possible about the series and the characters. I guess that's my history in short version, if you wonder anything else, feel free to ask me.
