When it comes to digital distribution of the books that star him, Harry Potter has been hiding under his invisibility cloak practically the whole time the tomes have been available.
But now, through an agreement with the J.K Rowling-endorsed Pottermore website, the wizarding tales will be available to Amazon Kindle owners and users of the Kindle mobile apps too.
Available in both MOBI and EPUB file formats directly through the Pottermore website too, it represents the first time that the series has been available (legally, at least) as eBooks.
“For years our customers have loved reading Harry Potter books in print, and have made them the best-selling print book series on Amazon.com,” said Russ Grandinetti, Vice President of Kindle Content.
“We’re excited that Harry Potter fans worldwide are now able to read J.K. Rowling’s fantastic books on their Kindles and free Kindle reading apps.”
The Harry Potter books are available through the Kindle store on a “Buy Once, Read Everywhere” basis, meaning that if you purchase one on any Kindle, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, PC, Mac or Android device, you’ll be able to access it free of charge on any of the others too.
Prices start at £4.99.
