Just watched 5 of the films in a row (I know I've got waaaaaaay too much time to spare) and now I really want to read the books but I'm a slow reader. I've got 90 days free until uni starts and I'm really bored, do the books have a huge amount more detail in them?

I am a HUUUUUUUUUUUGE Harry Potter fan, so I enjoyed every single minute I spent reading them.
The movie is not even close to the greatness of the books, the way Rowling writes will get you, if you liked the movies, the books will make you go crazy over it.
There are maaaany characters you have never heard about because you only saw the movies, so discovering new characters and THE REAL things that happened in the story will make you love Harry Potter.
For example: Dobby wasn't on the 4th movie, but he had an special part in the book, he gave Harry the gillyweed, not Neville.
Ex2: There is this amazing character called Peeves, you don't know who that is because the stupid Chris Columbus didn't add him to the first movie, so the other directors couldn't bring Peeves out of nowhere, he needed to be in the first movie so he could appear on the others.
You will not regret it, but... You'll need more than 90 days if you're a slow reader.
I read the first one when I was 12, it took me 2 weeks I think (the first time) the second time I read it took me 2 days. So yeah, you can finish but you have to be quick.0
