Harry Potter Legit eBooks Coming

‘Harry Potter’ Series to Be Sold as E-Books

Author J.K. Rowling announced Thursday that her seven Potter novels will be sold as e-books starting in October — ending the boy wizard’s status as one of the highest-profile holdouts against digital publishing.

The magical stories that conquered the world in print form will be available as audiobooks and e-books in multiple languages through a new website, “Pottermore.”

Rowling also has written 18,000 words of new Potter material for the interactive site, which promises to immerse users in her world of wizards, combining elements of computer games, social networking and an online store.

Rowling says the site includes “information I have been hoarding for years” about the books’ characters and settings.

The Potter books have been available illegitimately in e within hours of their publication, in multiple languages, worldwide.

It will be interesting to see what the sales of these legit versions will be.
