The official Pottermore shop was launched this morning, marking the first time that the Harry Potter books are available to buy in an eBook and digital audio book format.

This will be the only place to purchase digital copies of the Harry Potter series, which will be available in all formats for eReaders, tablets, smartphones and mp3 players.

The eBooks for Years 1-3 are available for $7.99, while Years 4-7 are priced at $9.99. Or, the complete series can be purchased for $57.54.

Digital audio books for Years 1-3 will cost $29.99, and Years 4-7 is priced at $44.99. The complete Harry Potter audio collection can be purchased for $ 242.94.

Even though the Pottermore shop is now open, Pottermore remains in beta. It's expected to open to everyone in April.

Yes, as gizzmogeek said, if you have an iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch, you just use the “Direct Download” button which lets you download a file that imports into iBooks. I personally downloaded them via my Mac into my Dropbox folder, then I used Dropbox to access the files from my iPad; Dropbox downloaded the file to the iPad, but said it could not open it (because of the encryption), so I used Dropbox’s menu to “Open in iBooks” and they were moved right into the iBooks library, where they are readable. You could also install the files by dragging them onto iTunes, then syncing your device with iTunes. Easy. Great to have the books in a searchable form, even though I generally prefer the paper books for pleasure reading.

Don’t think I’ll bother with the shop since I have the books already and I’m not a big fan of ebooks

scratches head at people who comment just to say they won’t be buying them

I got mine on Thursday, and as a previous commenter said, if you want the UK versions you can get them by gifting them to yourself and indicating the recipient is a UK resident. A bit devious, but for purist like me, most important.
