Oh sweet butterballs, this is what I’ve been dreaming of for such a long time. More than anything, I’ve been wanting to rebuy all those Harry Potter tomes I finished so many moons ago in eBook form. I need to comb through the books for the moment where J.K. Rowling finally lost her mind and began her march towards the epilogue.
Finally, after the books are long finished and the last Harry Potter movie has been released, you can now get Harry Potter books in ebook format. Instead of being available through an individual retailer’s site however, all the books are being sold through JK Rowling’s Pottermore site, a rarity in the competitive ebook world.
The entire series is now available in ePub format, or for the Kindle, Nook, Google Play, and Sony Reader platforms at Pottermore.com. Once you create a Pottermore account and buy a book (the first three are $7.99 each, the final four $9.99 each), you can download it up to eight times in any format you choose. You’ll notice that a specific iPad and iPhone format isn’t available, because Apple’s being a dick and won’t let Rowling sell her books via an outside website under any circumstances. You can however, still read the books on your iDevice if you get the ePub format.
Yeah man, I be trolling. I admit it. The Potter books are neat, but I don’t really get why people are throwing such rope over them coming out on eBook. However, I do get why Rowling and her team of Hype Wizards (ha!) have gone and sensationalized the thang. The screaming, chattering crowds who need desperately to buy the books they already own.
