RE: To buy or not to buy; that is the question...(Harry Potter)

These were accumulated over the years as Christmas/ Birthday presents to my son. I have just listened to them all (over a period of weeks) but have nearly finished The Half Blood Prince. I long for The Deathly Hallows but - they are £43.47 on CD in the Adult Edition (down from £75)) -[Image: 1X1blank.jpg] £54.99 for the children's edition(?) and £61.75 on audio tape. I can't really justify spending that sort of money on myself for no good reason and my son has thoughtlessly grown out of Harry Potter, so no excuse there. Then it occurred to me that if the Harry Potter books come out on Kindle, I can buy Deathly Hallows at a snip and listen to it on my Kindle - not quite Stephen Fry, but I could make do. The question is - will Harry Potter ever appear on Kindle, or should I start looking for excuses to invest in the CDs?

I am very sure it will come out on Kindle. So lets wait a bit Wink

I have all the Harry Potter books on my Kindle but you have to buy them through the official Pottermore website. I got the whole collection for £38.64 which I thought was quite a good bargain or you can buy the books individually for £4.99.

This is the link to the site http://shop.pottermore.com...

Maid Marian - thank you so much for this timely reminder. I had downloaded The Prisoner of Azkaban onto my Kindle, but hadn't got round to The Deathly Hallows. Since reading your post I have popped over to Pottermore and now have the final Harry Potter book to listen to Text-to-Speech on my Kindle - perfect for a rainy weekend.Kindle Smile I noticed that the audio version of Deathly Hallows (MP3) was available from Pottermore for £32.99, but am happy with the robotic voice of my Kindle for the lower price of £6.99.
It has been quite a time since my original post in January 2011, but a case of "everthing comes to he who waits".Smile
