Poll on the climaxes of each of the books  
The poll I mentioned in my to-do list yesterday. Seemed like a good and interesting question...ooh, I think I'll actually make this post public and submit it to thedaily_snitch.

Poll #745146 The gripping factor in scenes at the end of each Harry Potter book

If you were reading each for the very first time, during which scene would it be the hardest to put the book down and do something else trivial, like going out with friends?

During the end of the first, when the trio are going down the trapdoor and everything that follows
2(1.2%)
During the second, when Harry and Ron have figured out the pipes and are going down the sink
5(3.0%)
During the third, with everything in the Shrieking Shack
35(20.8%)
During the fourth, with the graveyard scene
57(33.9%)
During the fifth, in the Ministry, but especially the Department of Mysteries
38(22.6%)
During the sixth, when Harry and Dumbledore are in the cave, but also everything that follows
31(18.5%)

Which would be the second-hardest?

The first
6(3.6%)
The second
14(8.3%)
The third
39(23.2%)
The fourth
37(22.0%)
The fifth
29(17.3%)
The sixth
43(25.6%)

Stumbled in via the d_s:

Of course I'd never have put down any of the books towards their ends (even though I threw HBP at the wall to scream at Dumbledore's death - but only for five minutes or so). But it would've been totally impossible with GoF, more than all others.
