Kindle will be getting Harry Potter ebooks after all

Earlier today I worked my way through a valid (but completely wrong) argument how we didn't know for sure that the kindle would get Harry Potter ebooks. Amazon noted my lunacy post and sent around a clarification.

We’re working closely with Pottermore to make sure Kindle customers will be able to buy and read J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books.

There are times where I will be embarrassed when caught out as being wrong, but not today. I was gloriously wrong, and I will revel in that fact.

My glorious error was based on credible evidence; other blogs such as Gizmodo and ZDNet simply misread the Google post. And besides,  I knew I was probably wrong the entire time I wrote that post and I even said so. I'm quite happy to raise a question and be told the answer I was hoping for.

Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. I am SO disappointed as my 9 yr old grandson said that he would love to have a Kindle with the whole series of Harry Potter on it for Christmas/Birthday {31st December}
    I decided to let him have his dream, I have bought the Kindle and now I can’t get the books.
    What a let down. Some friends are critical of Amazon having the monopoly on Kindle books but not this time.
    He reads a lot. Any other suggestions for a 9year old boy?
