J.K. Rowling’s magical character, Harry Potter,  lives in two worlds: The one inhabited by ordinary folk and the one where his school, Hogwarts is situated.

After a journey that seems to have taken many years, Harry now resides somewhere else: On Kindle e-books available (in a round-about way) through Amazon.com

Finding Harry Potter at Amazon.com

Here’s Amazon.com’s explanation of how you can by all seven Harry Potter books:

 “How to Buy “To complete a purchase, you must create an account at the Pottermore Shop, a third-party site, and all transactions take place on Pottermore, not Amazon. Find the book that you want on Amazon, click the ‘Buy at Pottermore’link, and you will be taken through the purchase process on their site.

“How to Read “Books purchased from the Pottermore Shop can be linked to a customer’s Amazon account so that they have the same “Buy Once, Read Everywhere” features as other Kindle books. When you link your account we will send the book to the Kindle or Kindle apps registered to the same Amazon account.” (Since Amazon.com says you can read the Harry Potter e-books using a Kindle app — available free for most desktop, laptop and tablet computers, as well as smartphones, you don’t need to own a Kindle e-reader or “Fire.”)

Getting In Line to Buy

Although your purchase of Harry Potter e-books is finalized through the Pottermore Shop, you begin the process on at the Harry Potter E-books page on the Amazon.com Website. Just pick the book you want to order, and you’ll be taken to a page that has a purchase button like this on in the top right-hand corner of the page. When you click on the “Buy at Pottermore” button you be transported (through electronic wizardry) to the Pottermore Shop where you can pay for your book.

(Purchasing Harry Potter books through the links on this page helps support Tales Told From The Road.)
