I won't be able to choose! IMO listening to the series, you pick up on so many more things, even if you've read every book twice and seen all the movies ten times. I can't call myself a true fan until I've finished listening to them both (and I'm getting an HP themed tattoo which I've had planned for almost a year).
I listen to all of them, have all of them narrated by Jim Dale. He is an artist. Get them on e-bay. I read each first. I bought the hardback and the tapes on the last two books on the same day. I let mom use the tapes and read the book first. Now I just listen to them. They are awesome.

I live alone and my house comes alive when I listen to audio books. My poor puppies are perfectly socialized to mens' voices so long as they have brittish accents, LOL. I love listening to the English Classics -- awesome. Even some of their modern fiction. It makes the house home, if you know what I mean.

I can listen and wash dishes, do a puzzle, play solitare on the computer (no internet at home).

3rd one. I loved Sirius.

3 and up were all amazing books (still enjoyed 1-2). But, 3 was always my favorite that I would read over and over again.

I liked the Goblet of Fire. I was fascinated by the tournament and the match between Voldemort & Harry. The dragons were pretty awesome too! :-D

The Deathly Hallows was pretty cool too. But I literally balled when Doby died.

@selzer... Oh my goodness. I hated Umbridge!

On the flip... I always loved Snape, even from the beginning when everyone else hated him. I got really attached to his character.

Oh, I hated her, sure, she was just such a great character to hate. "Filthy Half-breeds!"

I like her in the Deathly Hallows too -- "To Be Punished" -- it's fun.

As for Snape, I like his character too, to hate. "Potter has been crossing lines..."

Oh I know. I loved when she got carried off into the woods around the school. That woman made my skin crawl! LOL!

I really started getting into Snapes character when we learned his story.

"she got carried away."

Well, I just finished the Deathly Hallows again. I want for the story to continue. It is always darn depressing when I get to the end of a good book even if I have read them before.

On Sundays my niece is now reading to me the Sorcerer's Stone.

When I read a good series. I read the first book and when the second one comes out I reread the first, before I read the second and so on and so on .
I make sure it is all fresh in my mind and that way the story is not over till the last book. Been awhile since I read Harry Potter. might have to read it again lol, or maybe I will try listening to it. I have never had a audio book.
