I’ve read all the Harry Potter books. Once. I don’t understand the people who are rushing to reread Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince before the July 15 film release. The fact that I haven’t read the book since 2005 means that the movie might still have a chance of surprising me. Perhaps I’m so against “the rereading” because I hadn’t read any of the series when I went to see the first film, and I ended up enjoying it more than the friends who were already hardcore fans… What’s your MO when it comes to preparing for Harry Potter movies? Tell us in the poll below. (And explain in the comments section. There’s still time to sway me…)
