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.

Google Teams Up With J.K. Rowling's Pottermore

Pottermore, the free online experience set to keep the popularity of the Harry Potter franchise alive after the release of the books and movies, has joined forces with Google. Pottermore will be integrated with a number of Google products and APIs. Those who purchase a Harry Potter ebook or digital audiobook (available exclusively from Pottermore) will be able to store it in their Google Books library, meaning it can then be read on over 80 e-readers using Google’s app.

Google Checkout will be the preferred third-party payment platform for all of the purchases made on Pottermore. Also, YouTube will be used for future global video broadcasts, as it was for J.K. Rowling’s initial Pottermore announcement last month.

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.

Thought that Sony was Pottermore’s only tech partner? Think again. Google Books today announced that they’re teaming up to help distribute the Harry Potter books after purchasing on Pottermore’s website.

They write on the Google Books blog:

So now we know that you won’t need a Sony eReader to read the Potter books. No word yet on whether Kindles and Nooks will be supported.

Google announced today that it it is teaming up with Pottermore, JK Rowling’s new site, which will open up this fall to provide eBook services. The two are partnering to integrate Pottermore with various Google products and APIs.

The Harry Potter book series will launch in eBook form on Pottermore.com in October, and they’ll also become available through the Google eBooks platform. When users buy it, they will be able to keep it in their Google Books library in the cloud (as well as on other platforms).

“Pottermore will be the exclusive place to buy Harry Potter ebooks and digital audiobooks,” says Larissa Fontaine in New Business Development for 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.”

Pottermore will also take advantage of Google’s YouTube for global video broadcasts.

Google eBooks can be read on the web, and through apps for iOS and Android, as well as on over 80 e-readers. A new Google eBooks-integrated e-reader from iRiver is being sold at Target, Google announced a couple weeks ago. With this one, you can browse, buy and read Google eBooks with your e-reader through Wi-Fi, rather than downloading and transferring them from computer to e-reader with a cord with other devices.

Harry Potter teams up with Google for Pottermore.com | AAACBC

We first wrote about the new Harry Potter themed website Pottermore last month, which is set to open its online doors to the public in October.

And today, Google has announced a partnership with Pottermore to help fans make the most of their ebook purchases.

Pottermore will be integrated with a number of Google products and APIs. When the series of Harry Potter ebooks and audio books launch on Pottermore.com later this year, you will be able to push them through to your Google eBooks account.

Additionally, YouTube will be the default platform for all future video broadcasts, just as it was for JK Rowling’s Pottermore announcement back in June:

Part of the deal will also see Google Checkout become the preferred third-party payment platform for purchases made on Pottermore.com, but you’ll also be given the choice to pay by debit or credit card.

Now that the final Harry Potter movie has been made, Pottermore looks set to keep the Harry Potter brand ticking over just nicely. This link-up should be a major money-spinner for Google, as the Harry Potter brand is thought to be worth in excess of $15bn.
