Kindle Owners To Get Free Access To All 7 Harry Potter Books

Wands at the ready Kindle owners, today, Amazon announced that all seven of J.K. Rowling's blockbuster Harry Potter books are being added to the company's Kindle Owners' Lending Library for Kindle owners to borrow and read for free.

“We’re absolutely delighted to have reached this agreement with Pottermore. This is the kind of significant investment in the Kindle ecosystem that we’ll continue to make on behalf of Kindle owners,” said Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of “Over a year, borrowing the Harry Potter books, plus a handful of additional titles, can alone be worth more than the $79 cost of Prime or a Kindle. The Kindle Owners’ Lending Library also has an innovative feature that’s of great benefit for popular titles like Harry Potter – unlimited supply of each title – you never get put on a waiting list.”

The new, and exclusive, deal allows Amazon Prime members the ability to "borrow" the e-books for free much the same would you would at a physical library.  You'll have the option of downloading any of the seven books one at a time each month and you'll have to check one e-book back in before downloading another, although the e-books don't have return due dates.

The Harry Potter eBooks will be available starting June 19th.
