At long last, fans of the Harry Potter series can buy the books for their e-reader devices. The seven-book series is available for sale electronically via the Pottermore website starting on Tuesday (March 27). But don’t worry if you aren’t one of the million or so Beta users – the Pottermore shop is available to everyone.
At shop.pottermore.com, each book is now available in both electronic and audio book format. The e-books range in price from $7.99 for “Sorcerer’s Stone,” “Chamber of Secrets” and “Prisoner of Azkaban,” to $9.99 for the final four books. Or you can buy all seven at once for $57.54, which is a 10% savings off buying them separately. The site says virtually all e-readers will be compatible with the books.
Pottermore should be opening to the public very soon. Initially, the site was to be open worldwide in October 2011, but once the Beta opened and bugs were discovered, the site has had various work done periodically and should be opening in early April to everyone.
We’ve been on the Beta and while parts of it are pretty cool, it’s not exactly what we were envisioning. Still, we’re eager for the second book to be available on the site.
