J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series is finally available for digital download. The first three e-books cost $7.99, while the last four will run you $9.99 each. I imagine the price difference lends extra incentive to buying the The Complete Harry Potter Collection version (if each e-book sold for only $7.99, all seven books would be $55.93, just a couple dollars shy of the actual cost of $57.54). As the math works out, you’ll save about 10%.
The books are DRM-free but sport special digital watermarks “that relate to the book, to the purchaser and the purchase time. This allows us to track and respond to possible copyright misuse.” French, Italian, German, and Spanish editions are on the way. You can find the books on Pottermore, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble, and they can also be sent to Sony Reader and Google Play accounts via Pottermore. Learn more here. A full list of compatible devices is also available.
What do you think? I already own all the Harry Potter books in print, but it sure would be nice not to have to stack my shelves with such a honking collection.
