Baker & Taylor had some good news today for the handful of people who hadn't already bought HP ebooks.
As of today, readers can transfer ebooks bought at Pottermore to their existing Blio account. This should also work with B&T's white label partners like Toshiba BookPlace.
"We are very excited to have Baker & Taylor's ebook platform integrated into Pottermore. The Blio ereader is an important and growing player in the ebook retail space – adding new distribution channels for the Harry Potter content with device manufacturers, mobile carriers and retailers," said Charlie Redmayne, CEO of Pottermore.
On a related note, there's no mention of whether the ebooks will be made available via Axis 360, so i'm guessing that particular deal hasn't been signed yet.
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. 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."
