When JK Rowling’s new website Pottermore opens its doors this Fall, we’ll provide services to help fans make the most of their ebook purchasing experience.

Pottermore and Google are teaming up to integrate Pottermore with a number of Google products and APIs. So when the series of Harry Potter ebooks launches on Pottermore.com in early October, these bestsellers will be available in the U.S. via the open Google eBooks platform. When you buy a Harry Potter ebook from Pottermore, you will be able to choose to keep it in your Google Books library in-the-cloud, as well as on other e-reading platforms.

Google eBooks can be read on most devices with a modern browser, through the Google Books apps for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, and on more than 80 ereaders.

Pottermore will be the exclusive place to buy Harry Potter ebooks and digital audiobooks. You’ll be able to buy ebooks from the Pottermore Shop, push them to your Google Books library and store them alongside your other Google eBooks. Your other Google eBooks may be purchased from any of more than 250 independent booksellers or from Google directly.

Also under this agreement, Google Checkout will be the preferred third party payment platform for all purchases made on Pottermore.com. When you visit the Pottermore Shop, you’ll be able to pay for your purchases using Google Checkout, in addition to using a debit or credit card.

The Pottermore team also plans to use YouTube for global video broadcasts in the future, as they did for JK Rowling’s announcement of Pottermore in June.

Stay tuned for more Pottermore and Google wizardry on the web this summer, leading up to when Pottermore opens.

Rowling picks Google eBooks for online Harry Potter store | TG Daily

Harry Potter author JK Rowling has struck a deal with Google Books, allowing her novels to be released as e-books on the Google platform.

Last month, Rowling announced the Pottermore website, promising that it would soon include an online bookshop. Now, it’s been revealed that the books – which will be avaialble nowhere else – will be published in Google’s open eBooks format.

This means they can be accessed through the 80 or so ereaders that support the format, including Android or iOS devices, the Nook, and Sony readers, along with browsers and smartphone apps. While the Kindle is a glaring omission, Amazon says it’s working on that.

“Pottermore will be the exclusive place to buy Harry Potter ebooks and digital audiobooks,” says Larissa Fontaine of Google Books.

“You’ll be able to buy ebooks from the Pottermore Shop, push them to your Google Books library and store them alongside your other Google eBooks. Your other Google eBooks may be purchased from any of more than 250 independent booksellers or from Google directly.”

Google says that Google Checkout will be the preferred third party payment platform for all purchases made on Pottermore.com, and that in future the Pottermore team will use YouTube for global video broadcasts, as was done for the original Pottermore announcement in June.

The site‘s due to launch in October.

 

Pottermore And Google Join Forces To Sell Potter Ebooks

One giant joins forces with another one….  Harry Potter and Google Books:

In a press release, Google Books announced  that they will be joining forces with JK Rowling’s shortly to open Harry Potter website (Pottermore).

This wont simply mean you can buy your Harry Potter ebooks from Google Books, but as they explain it, it is a much more complex relationship, I can do no better than to quote from their press release in which they describe the relationship rather clearly, as follows:-

So, now you know.  

This whole Pottermore thing is becoming more interesting every day as it is much more than simply a hugely successful author taking over complete control of her work, rather than letting her publishers look after it all for her, but is perhaps the first step in opening up the ebook world to make it actually equivalent to the paper book world in many important ways.  If this site succeeds, and I see no reason for it to fail given the immense popularity of the whole Potter saga and the equal success of the film series of the books, then I hope we will see more and more ebooks being released without DRM protection, and in all the appropriate formats to enable people to buy and read them no matter what ereader they happen to own.

I assume that publishers of ebooks will be watching this experiment with hawkish eyes, and will draw their own conclusions from the experiment, and its hoped for success, and perhaps realise they have been heading rapidly down the wrong road since ereaders became so normal….
