Are these pretty easy to read? And are they enjoyable in Latin?

I've never read them in English, but I suppose I may as well read them and improve my Latin at the same time.

It all depends on your level of experience with Latin, but yes, they are fairly easy to read. I kept an English translation handy, to help with the tricky parts. I made it through the whole length of the first book. I hadn't read Potter before and I liked the book a lot. (In either language.)

A lot of the Latin literature one reads in class is philosophical or poetic or political, but the Potter books are just fun.
