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.
