News today that the Pottermore Shop opened and all the Harry Potter eBooks are available!! I’m slightly excited. Well, as my wife might note, I’m shaking right now and can’t calm down. And I’ve already bought all the eBooks and downloaded them to my Kindle Fire. Happy, happy, happy!!
The first three books are priced at $7.99 and the rest are priced at $9.99. You can buy a bundle of them for $57.54. The pricing is also available for British Pounds and for Euros. I tried to buy the Great Britain English versions but they wouldn’t let me, so I’ve got the American English ones. Plus, the audiobooks are also available to purchase as downloads.
The process was fairly seamless. It would’ve gone quicker if my hands hadn’t been shaking so much. Anyway, you need to set up an account on the Pottermore Shop. Select the items you want and then checkout. You’ll enter your credit card information and are given the choice to save that for future use at the shop. Then it asks what format you would like, i.e. Sony, Nook, or Kindle, etc. They have a wide availability of compatible devices. For me, it was Amazon Kindle. Then they asked if I wanted to link my purchases to my Amazon account which I did. Then I sent the books to my Amazon account. They showed up automatically on my Kindle Fire and downloaded immediately. They look good. Haven’t checked my Kindle Keyboard yet but I assume the process will be similar. [Update: The eBooks did automatically push across onto my Kindle Keyboard too.]
Have I mentioned I’m happy about all this? Finally!!! Anyway, here’s the place where I originally saw that the eBooks were available.
