Every Single Harry Potter Book Will Be Free on Amazon Prime

Do you have an Amazon Prime account? Then you have all seven books of the Harry Potter adolescent warfare odyssey. Amazon just told us the entire series will be made free as part of its Kindle Lending Library.

This is a pretty huge deal—and not just because there are legions of frothing Potter fans who will reread these books until the collapse of christendom. The Potter series would normally cost you $87 at retail—and now you can "borrow" one of them, for free, from any Kindle device you want if you're a Prime member. No due dates, although you can't take out more than one per month.

This also adds a nice stab of legitimacy to the Kindle Lending Library, which for a while was looking like the liquidation bin at a sad Borders.
