I didn't start reading the books when I was young.
I started when I was probably 16.
So if that counts as very young, I'll take it!
When I was 14 I was running this summer camp drama production thing and all these kids were reading it and I was like, "WTF are all you kids doing?"
And then years later I started
I know when I read them I bought the first three books as a boxed set, so I didn't start until the third one was out already
The fourth book is the only one I had to *wait* for. I was late to the game
