      I don’t think it’s too expensive. It’s cheaper than buying it hardcover or paperback. I heard Harry Potter will soon be at the library too for ereaders.

      You won’t be disappointed! You explore Hogwarts and learn more about the series. I’m excited to go beyond book 1, since that was all that was available for the beta testers. Let me know which house you get sorted into! 🙂

    This is great news for Ms. Rowling … my source of inspiration, for sure. I think every new author looks at Ms. Rowling as a role model. Nice post, Caroline, and my heartiest congratulations go to J.K. Rowling for her many successes with here series of books.

      I thought this was great news that everyone should hear! Although, there is something magical about reading Harry Potter from an actual book. Thanks for your kind comment.
