It's Going To Be A Pain Downloading Harry Potter Books To Kindle

J.K. Rowling made a splash when she announced Harry Potter will be available as ebooks for the first time, through a Pottermore website launching this Australian spring. Thankfully she's allowed Google - and these ereaders - a chance to actually, y'know, read them.

Unfortunately the Kindle still doesn't support Google ebooks, but if you've got an Android or iOS device, Nook, BeBook or readers from Sony, you'll be able to download them through Pottermore, and store it in your Google eBooks library. There do seem to be some back-door ways to read Google ebooks on Kindles, if anyone is particularly desperate for their e-fix of boy wizardry. [Google Blog]
