Here is an exciting new way to read the amazing Harry Potter books for free! Amazon has just announced that starting on June 19th you will be able to borrow Harry Potter on Kindle for free!
The Harry Potter series has only just become available on Kindle and other ereader devices. You can purchase the books through Amazon and you are redirected to the new official J.K Rowling Pottermore site.
The Harry Potter series has become such a huge phenomenon since the first book Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (Book 1) was published in 1987. The 7 books inspired the most successful movie franchise in history. Now you can even visit the studios where the movies were made – I was lucky enough to take a tour during my visit to the UK earlier this month.
The reason for the success of Harry Potter is of course the books. The story is so imaginative and the books are so very well written. So if you or your children haven’t yet read the books the opportunity to borrow them free of charge on Kindle is too good to pass up.
How do you borrow books for free? Read all seven Harry Potter books (coming June 19) or choose from over 145,000 other books, including more than 100 current and former New York Times Best Sellers. Borrow as frequently as a book a month, with no due dates. All you need is a Kindle device, and Prime membership which gives you free shipping on Amazon Prime products.
There are a number of Kindle devices available and they start at just $79 for the Kindle, Wi-Fi, 6″ E Ink Display – includes Special Offers & Sponsored Screensavers. I waited a while after the initial launch of the Kindle to buy one as I thought that I may not like reading books on a scree. But as soon as I took the plunge and bought one I was completely hooked. I now have a Kindle Fire as well as one of the first generation Kindles.
I particularly like it that you can usually sample a book before buying. How many times have you bought a book and then realized after the first chapter that this really isn’t the one for you. The Kindle takes some of the guess work out of buying a book that you are really going to enjoy.
I sometimes still like to buy a ‘proper’ book but most of my reading I now do on my Kindle. I like the portability, the ease of buying books, and also I personally find it easier to read a Kindle in bed than a traditional book. If you haven’t been converted yet then give one a try and you will probably become just as hooked as most Kindle owners are!
