It's Going to Be a Real Pain Downloading Harry Potter Books to Kindle

J.K. Rowling made a splash when she announced Harry Potter will be available as ebooks for the first time, through a Pottermore website launching this Fall. Thankfully she's allowed Google—and these ereaders—a chance to actually, y'know, read them.

If you've got an Android or iOS device, Nook, BeBook or readers from Sony, you'll be able to download them through Pottermore, and store it in your Google eBooks library. Unfortunately, the Kindle still doesn't support Google ebooks, but Amazon says it's working with Pottermore to let Kindle owners buy and read the series. Until that happens, there seems to be some back-door ways to read Google ebooks on Kindles, if anyone is particularly desperate for their e-fix of boy wizardry. [Google Blog]
