well most of the time i read the book first, and then watch the moviee. 
but yeah HP? i watch the movies sometimes, if i'm really jobless, but the story never made me wanna pick up the book. It could be the size of the books too, who knows! but yeah HP is something that does'nt interest me. ( ik i'm gonna be hated by thousands of people here!)
and most of the times, i dont like reading a book after watching the movie cause you like already know the story? so its not fair to the author, i feel.

No...i usually read the book and then watch the movieSmileBut the books are always much better then the movie...for ex Percy Jackson book was pretty good but they totally spoiled the movie by cutting out half of the important plot..

I had watched Harry Potter 1 and 2 movies first, they were forced on me by my 2 ridiculous cousin brothers when i was in 6th grade!! and Omygod!! I'm so glad they did! I had to read the books because of those movies!!! it was so good!!

I have read each Harry Potter book over 20 times now i think! Lost count! LOL

and the other movie I saw recently was Something Borrowed and I observed that the movie is based on a book also called something borrowed by Emily Griffin! I want to read that book now, waiting to get hold of it!

and I always prefer books that movies! very rarely the cinematic version is able to satisfy the books either to a great extent or to an extent where the story may be changed here and there but you're still content!

I have a preconceived notion that the movies are usually not as good as the books so I always read first. And most of the time it does turn out that way. Like with the Harry Potter movies I still can't get through any of them without critiquing here and there. So I'm a book fan first and foremost.
