You can now buy Harry Potter ebooks – legally!

You can now buy Harry Potter ebooks for your Kindle or Nook (legally) on Amazon, B&N, etc. This is big news for a few reasons. One is that the Harry Potter books have not been available at all as ebooks legally (though there have been illegal copies floating about). Many fans have been impatiently waiting to load Harry Potter books onto their Kindles or Nooks. Another reason this is big news is because this is the first time an author has been able to sell their ebooks directly to the reader through links on the major ebook retailers Amazon and B&N.

When you buy a Harry Potter ebook from Amazon or from Barnes and Noble, you are redirected to Pottermore, JK Rowling’s own Harry Potter site. I think that’s exciting–an author retaining so much control! I also love that the Harry Potter ebooks are being sold without DRM, making them so much more accessible and easily transferred to different hardware by the buyer (as it should be). The ebooks are still watermarked and can be traced back to the buyer.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, the first book in the Harry Potter series, is $7.99, and ALL the Harry Potter ebooks are up and available for your Kindle or Nook.

What do you think? If you loved the Harry Potter books, are you going to download them for your Kindle or Nook as well? (I personally buy copies of books I love for both my Kindle and paper book collection.)
