    I have read the whole series twice. I love re reading the series and am currently listening to the audio books by Jim Dale. So this will be my third read through.

    • Awesome! I’ve never listened to the audio books. Maybe I will give it a go soon 🙂

  • Stella Lahti

    i have read the Prisoner of Azkaban 21 times… needless to state that it is my favourite one amongst the seven

    • Wow! That is amazing! I only wish to have read one of the books that many times. Hats off to you my friend

    • Augustus

      Wow, well done Stella. Impressive. I imagine you know that book like the back of your hand.

    • I’m close. I’ve read the complete series exactly 20 times. And I’ll re-read it for the rest of my life.

    I have read all the Harry Potter books for more than 20 times and it always gives me something new. When I was 23 I even made a tattoo – “ubi est thesaurus tuus ibi est et cor tuum” – where your treasure is, there your heart will be also – this is the most powerfull words for me. HP is something in my life I will always be appreciate for. It gives me courage in difficult times and it reminds me to turn on the light in the darkest times in my life.

    I generally try and re-read the series every year or so, time allowing, although more recently I’ve been treating the books more as a reference resource for my own attempts at fanfic than anything else. Problem is, once you’ve found the reference you were looking for, you find yourself still reading …

    I have tally marks on the inside cover of each book for every time I’ve read it. I’m reading Sorcerer’s Stone for the 26th time and I’ve read all the other books 25 times except for Deathly Hallows which I’ve only read 22 times.
    I suffer from depression but Harry Potter has always been there there to help me through even the darkest times.

    • That is really cool! I may steal your method of keeping count of how many times I read the books… 😛
      Harry Potter is a great way of getting through rough times. It truly is always there to welcome us home 🙂

    starting to listen to Alohomora now must be like reading the books for the first time in 2007. There’s so much brilliant material, but the end is in sight. A little sad.

    I’ve read every Harry Potter book at least 8 times but im sure it’s more i never ever get bored of them. The films I admit i’ve lost count of how many times i’ve watched them. My other favourite books are the inheritance cycle; Eragon series they’re massively long books but incredible and only read them 3 times.

  • Hermione

    Can’t count how many times…I’ve read each one probably 5 to 7 times, but my Dad read each of them aloud to me first. I’ve read one through four in French, and even did a half-read of DH from Dobby’s death on after I watched DH part 1. (Well, I had to finish the story, even if the movie format was still 8 months away!)

  • Hermione

    Have also read the Inkheart trilogy about 3 or 4 times…. 🙂

  • Yuu

    I read them twice. First in French and then in English.
    Once when I was a child and didn’t understand everything in the last book, I was only 12 when it came out XD
    The second was this summer and I was 19 and understood a lot more than before :3

  • Jan

    I have read the books 10-12 times as I recall … 5-6 times in English and 5-6 times in Danish, and no doubt that I will re-read them again and again 🙂
    The movies I guess I have seen 3-4 times, but I still have problems seeing them in their own right, can’t help but compare them to the books, and for me the movies fade very much in comparison.

  • Ria

    I have read them 8 times and I probably read them again when I have enough time ?
