The beginning of the end is in sight! Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 opens in just 14 days. We know a lot of you fans are avid HP moviegoers who may or may not have read the books already, so we're wondering if you'll be taking them in for the first time, or re-reading any before watching Part 1 of the epic finale. If you haven't read the series, maybe you'd rather not pick it up so you can watch the film without making a comparison. Or, do you plan on reading this book or the full series to make sure you don't miss the film’s allusions? In the case that you've already read the book or the series, are you skimming through it again to refresh your memory of all the great scenes you're anticipating?
As an avid HP reader myself, I found the last novel easy to get through – it's lengthy, but it's hard to put down. What about Rowling's supplement, "The Tales of Beedle the Bard"? Or other "Potter" companion books? If you start reading just Book 7, it is still possible to finish by the opening midnight showing. I'm not sure if there's enough time to take on the whole series; however, I won't underestimate some of you voracious readers. Let us know in the poll below if you plan on flipping through an HP book or two before watching the flick!
