I started reading these just before the Half Blood Prince came out. I was late to the franchise, I admit... But I finished the first 5 books in a month! LOL

I recently reread the last book. Just the last book. I don't why. XD

There should never be a reason to not re-read Harry Potter. Don't question it, Night. Embrace it.

I think the only book I ended up rereading was the fifth book, and that was immediately after I finished reading it the first time.

Personally, I don't find any re-read potential in the books as much as I do others.

I've re-read the 6th and 7th books a couple times, since those are the only ones I own (but I have read all the books! I borrowed the first three from my step sister and 4 and 5 from the library xD)

I really need to work on getting the rest of the collection D:

I started reading the books shortly after I saw Sorcerer's Stone in theaters. Goblet of Fire was out at the time. I read all 4 in like a month and then read Goblet of Fire like 3 times before I had to take it back to the library. It's still my favorite of the series.

Goblet of Fire is actually one of my least favorite books.

Or maybe it's the movie's influence because the movie REALLY ruined a lot of what I liked about GoF.

It's possible. the fourth movie is really bad. Honestly, I can't read GOF without thinking of the movie now.

GoF was my favorite movie for a while (before DH part 2 came out xD ). I think my least favorite will forever be OotP, it was also my least favorite book, lol. But I still love all of the books and movies forever. x3

The Half-Blood Prince was actually my favorite book. But the movie felt like it needed a better ending with more closure.

I think I remember you mentioning that. That is so cool. Is it much different?

It's a bit different. Some of the spelling, wording of things, words. There have been a couple things that I didn't understand, like a word or saying. Hadda Google a few things. But overall, it's the same.

Yeah, I think it'd be interesting to read it in a British person's POV.
