Kobo users can now add the Harry Potter eBooks to their Kobo libraries thanks to a new deal between J.K. Rowling’s Pottermore and the ebook retailer firm.
Rowling launched the ebook versions of her books in March, opting to ditch DRM and allowing fans to read them on any device.
The tie-up with Kobo allows the retailer’s customers to buy the books from Pottermore via a quick link on the Kobo website. After purchase the books will be synced to the libraries on their Kobo device or app.
“We’re excited to bring together the extremely successful Harry Potter phenomenon and the always-enthusiastic Kobo eReading community. Fans have been waiting for years to see the Harry Potter series in digital and now that wait is over,” said Michael Tamblyn, Executive Vice President Content, Sales & Merchandising, Kobo.
“Best-selling author J. K. Rowling has captured the imaginations of book lovers everywhere, and we couldn’t be more excited about bringing her vision to the Kobo reading experience.”
“Kobo is an increasingly powerful player in the eReading market and we are delighted to have them on board,” said Charlie Redmayne, CEO, Pottermore.
