Harry Potter May Be Getting The E-Book Treatment

| Filed under: Harry PotterTech Talk

harry potter may be headed to ereaders

After the final Harry Potter film is released, it'll probably be time to re-read all the books AND re-watch all the movies in an effort to cope.

Looks like we may be able to re-experience the Harry Potter series on our iPads and Kindles, because J.K. Rowling is considering releasing the series in e-book format.

Here's what J.K.'s spokeswoman had to say about it:

"The e-book format is now something that is being actively considered."

Make it happen, J.K.! You KNOW all the technologically-savvy Potter fans out there will jump all over this!

Would U re-purchase the Harry Potter series in e-book format?

    Excellent!



  2. 2

    i would not buy this because i already have all the books and i like turning actual pages



  3. 3

    Heck yes! I'd be able to read them over again without looking like a nerd.. haha



  4. 4

    I'd buy it. I love rereading all my first edition hardcovers, but when I'm traveling or away at school, I can't carry them all, and an electronic version would be great because I don't like audio books. I used to hate ebooks, but there's no denying the convenience.



  5. 5

    Yes, I'd buy the e-books.

    Rowling is way behind the times with the e-book thing. Most books are available as e-books, libraries even lend e-book files. Maybe she was negotiating a better contract than most authors get with e-book sales. She certainly has the clout to hold out until she happy with the deal.

    I already have all the books in different editions and most of them in bloomsbury first edition! I don't see the point of the ebooks, there are already pdf files out there and I have them on my ipad!

    Re: sweptaway – She was just against the concept of ebooks. She specifically said none of the Harry Potter books would ever see the inside of a Kindle or any other type of ebook reader because she didn't want them read any other way than in book form.. Maybe she came to her senses and realized how ridiculous she was being about it

    I really hope this happens! I've been wanting them to be released for a long time. I travel A LOT, so the convenience of ebooks is just perfect for me, along with the fact that I have to walk around with my weight in books for school 5 days a week each semester. their release is long overdue to me

    No!!! E-books take the magic out of the real thing. I may like my kindle, but for my Harry Potter books…it's a no no…I like to hold my books and see how much I have left…and it makes me happy to actually hold my Harry Potter books and actually feel like I'm there. I'm debating if I want to give my kindle to someone in my family because I miss my books so much.

    Pirates have already turned them into ebooks :) I own the books but I'm not lugging my hardcovers on my carry on.

    hells yeah!

    I own all the hardcovers (hell I even own the special edition leather bound hardcovers of the first two) but even the paperbacks are too heavy to schlep around when I travel. The only thing that has kept me from rereading the last book before the last movie comes out is the fact that it's not available on Kindle. A long way of saying yep they'd get the $69.93 (7x$9.99) from me. Although if they charged more than that I might reconsider.

    I used to hate the idea of e-books, but last year I got a Nook. I love it. It's just so much more convenient. You can carry multiple books on one device, buy books without going out to the store, sample books you might be interested in, etc. It's a great thing. I think the Harry Potter books would be a huge hit with e-books. I understand what Rowling is saying, because I felt the same way. It's still reading, though, and that's what really matters the most.
