Re: How Did You Find Out About Artemis?

I found it in my school library when I was 9 (so..2004? Maybe?) and tried to take it out but for some reason it was "too old" and I would have to wait for two years before I could read it. Then my mum brought me books 2+3 the next year, but of course I STILL hadn't read the first one. However, Artemis Fowl was the first book I got out of the library when I was 11... and everything just happened from there.

I had the book at home for years but I'd never actually read it, and I was looking at the bookshelf in search for a good book and my dad suggested AF so I read the blurb, decided that it was just my kind of book, started reading it, and before long, I'd read the whole lot of them! :D

When I was 11, one of my best friends was reading it and the shineyness of the cover was too much for me to resist, so I made my mom buy it for me.
I am a signature :D

I heard that it was good, and then I went to the school library to get it. But my other friend snatched it first, and then spent three months reading it. >_< I still wish that I had gotten it first--I whipped through it in an hour.

I was sick and my mum bought it in a charity shop. Hated it when I read the first page. But then sshe read it to me (I was dead young) and I was like whoah, where did you get this thing? It rocks!

In my school we have something called chat and chew, where you read a book and talked about it at lunch. I decided to do chat and chew in fourth grade and the book that I did was artemis fowl! After that I was hooked!
