The average length of book in the series is about 600 pages. So the Harry Potter series takes about six months to read from start to finish. However, it can be read in less than a month if you do not stop to think about what happens next in the story.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was only 439 pages long but it contained more words than any other book in the series combined. This huge amount of text means that there is a lot of content available for readers to explore. Here are some of the most important events in the series so far:

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was published on 15 July 2005. It is the second book in the series and features competitions between students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The winner will receive a Golden Snitch which they can use to play Quidditch during the summer holidays. This book also introduces us to the mysterious Goblet of Fire which plays an important role in the rest of the series.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix was published on 20 June 2007.

Which Harry Potter book is the longest by word count?

The word count includes all of the chapter titles and the endnotes. It does not include any explanatory or other material that appears in the text but isn't part of the story itself. For example, we know that Dumbledore died at Hogwarts School because this fact is mentioned in the chapter titles. His death and the reasons behind it go beyond what's necessary to tell the story and so they don't count against the word limit.

Even with these exceptions, each book is still very short. The average length of a novel is about 50,000 words, so Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is equivalent to more than two normal novels.

Furthermore, the last three books in the series were not written by J K Rowling herself but by her assistant Daniel Greenburg who took over after Rowling became involved in the final chapters of the book.

Finally, some readers consider the Epilogue which covers events that take place several years after the end of the series as additional content that increases the word count beyond 257,000 words.
