Are you going to read the end first?

I suppose that I will. I don't like being shocked by a sad ending, and if it is a happy ending I'll relax more while reading.

Absolutely not. I don't even read chapter titles ahead, let alone text of the story.

That's like sacreligious Bmat, I'm ashamed ;) :D

You know, I read chapter titles. In HBP, the final chapter titles gave away Dumbledore's death. I will refrain from doing so for Deathly Hallows.

I think reading the ending first spoils the story.

HEHE, I think it was GoF, I read the chapter titles and something was spoiled for me, so I've resisted since then.
