Harry Potter eBooks coming to digital platforms from Pottermore and Google Books.

Pottermore is an upcoming website from J.K. Rowling that will add more online features to enhance the Harry Potter experience for people. One of those things will be to bring the Harry Potter series on the Android/iOS phones and tablets. When you buy a Harry Potter book via the Pottermore site you will be able to choose from a variety of formats in which to download. One option will be to save the book to the cloud – using Google Books.

Your Google Books library can be read using a web browser on any platform or via the Google Books app which is available for iOS and ships as part of a standard Android Gingerbread install.

Pottermore opens in October and will be a repository for Harry Potter-related fan fiction and discussion as well as the central hub for selling the Potter canon as electronic books, in order to side step the major players like Amazons Kindle. It is not yet known if any of the extra reading material available via Pottermore – fan fiction as well as character notes and articles by JK Rowling herself – will be readable via Google Books as well or if it will be restricted to just the seven novels in the series.
