I haven't read them and I don't plan too. I watched half of the first movie though. It was pretty cool, I just didn't get to sit through it.

I read a chapter and realized that I could spend time reading better books. So I did.

I read books 1-5...then my friend spoiled a major plot twist in book 6. I'm talking about the MAJOR ONE.

After that, I have never picked up the book. I keep hearing things like, You gotta read it! You'll never get these questions answered. I can't! My Harry Potter spirit got murdered, now I read sci fi stuff like Starcraft and Enders Game.

I read part of the first book because everyone hyped it up so much. I was like 100 pages into it and wasn't liking it so i stopped. Now i just watch the movies.

I only started reading them because of the amount of attention the 1st movie was getting *before* it was out. So I started reading the 4th and really liked it, so stopped, and read the 1st. I was amazed. It was the 1st book I had actually WANTED to read to the end. I then became really obsessed and read 1-4 millions of times, but I've only read the 5th 9 times and the 6th and 7th once (I stopped re-reading by then).

I read many of the books, and saw the movies of the one's I didn't get a chance to read. Good book series, but not the best, and the ending was cliched to the max.

Though I didn't care too much for how it all ended, I still love the series.

As I said, I think they're a fantastic series of books, and If anyone hasn't read them, then sprint to the closest bookstore,
For those who only watch the movies, anyone who's read the book would tell you that the movie don't live up to the book at all, trust me!

I have read all seven books. Overall, I think Harry Potter is extremely overrated. It is an okay series, but there are far better books out there.

But I guess opinions vary!

Yes, agreed. Though I suppose I should finish reading all seven books before I make a judgment, no? :x

After reading the seventh book, I concluded this was no more than a book for illiterate inbred children whose related parents have the time to stand in line at Wal-Mart for 2 hours to buy a book to read to them that they'll eventually forget anyway. Yeah...

I have only read books one through six. Overall, I like the first four. The fifth is okay but sort of dull. I despise the sixth book, since one third of it is angsty teenage romance. Ron x Hermione and Harry x Ginny both make me want to puke. What was Rowling thinking when she decided on those couplings (especially Harry x Ginny. That came out of nowhere)?

I never did read the seventh book, since the sixth completely turned me off from the series.

I've read each book only once. Not interested enough to read them through again.

I read the first two awhile back. They were pretty decent though quite overrated imo. Still, I quite enjoyed them so I can't complain ^___^

Read each book up to 6 only once, then stopped reading the books fully , and went straight to the end, which generally told me all i needed to know anyways

Read them and loved them all. Got me interested in reading again, and I'm thankful for that. Though the ending was slightly cliched, I believed it was fitting.

I read them, reread them and enjoyed them all. I bought the last three books exactly when they came out, at midnight. The ending on the sixth book was a bit too unrealistic for me and the seventh book was just crazy in comparison to the realism the first few books provided us with, even if it was a book based on magic. I felt disappointed that Rowling thought she had to kill off characters to make the book a proper book, but that was her decision and nothing anyone said nor pleaded could have changed that.

Good books. My favourite would probably be The Goblet of Fire.

I read them all in about 2 months... I'm a VERY fast reader.

They were really good! I even went to the opening of the last book, and got a cool T-Shirt.
