The Harry Potter Series is now available on Kindle!  All 7 books in the series can be purchased at J.K. Rowling’s Pottermore Shop, a third-party site.  Clicking on “Buy at Pottermore” will take you to Pottermore Shop, where you will need to create a separate account. Like all Kindle books, books purchased from Pottermore are “Buy Once, Read Everywhere” and will be delivered to your Kindle or free Kindle reading apps.

How to Purchase the Books from Pottermore

Harry Potter Kindle books can only be purchased from Pottermore (a third-party website), and not from your Kindle or the Kindle Store on Amazon.com. To complete a purchase at Pottermore you will need to create a separate Pottermore Shop account, but you will be able to link Pottermore book purchases to your Kindle account once your purchase is completed.

When you visit one of the Harry Potter product detail pages on Amazon.com, you will see a “Buy at Pottermore” button on the right hand side of your screen. Clicking this button will take you to the product detail page for the same book at the Pottermore Shop.

To select a book for purchase, click “Add to basket.” You can add items to your basket from either the main Harry Potter Ebooks page or from a specific product detail page. By clicking the “Add to basket” button, you will be given the option to review your selections or make changes to your order before proceeding to checkout. If you would like to continue browsing the Pottermore Shop simply click the “Continue Shopping” link.

If you decide to purchase your selected item(s), click on the “Proceed to Checkout” button at the top or the bottom of the page. By clicking the “Proceed to checkout” button, you will be directed to an Account Creation page. A Pottermore account is required to purchase and receive content from the Pottermore Shop. You will be able to transfer content from your Pottermore account to your Amazon Kindle account once your purchase has been processed.

Once you have entered your payment details, you will be able to review your selected items before placing your order. If you are happy with your selection, click on the “Confirm and pay” button at the bottom of the page to complete your purchase.

How to Transfer Pottermore Books to Your Kindle

When you have successfully completed your purchase on Pottermore, you will have the option of linking your new Harry Potter content to your Amazon Kindle account.  Pottermore allows you to download or link your content eight times for each purchase.  A single link to your Amazon account will add the books to your Kindle library where they can be downloaded to all Kindle or free Kindle reading applications registered to your account, without further reducing the number of downloads available from Pottermore.

To transfer your new content to your Amazon Kindle account, click on the “Download your books” button on the order confirmation page. You can also click on the “My Books” heading from the top navigation bar on Pottermore at any time to see a list of Harry Potter purchases that are available for download to your Kindle.  On the “My Books” page, click on the “Select” button that appears underneath the eBook you wish to download to your Kindle.

Select Amazon Kindle from the available options. Pottermore will then guide you through the process of linking your Pottermore and Amazon Kindle accounts. When prompted, click on the “Yes, link my account” button.

A pop-up window will appear which will ask you to sign in with your Amazon.com e-mail address and password.  Be sure to use the same Amazon account that you use for other Kindle purchases so that your books will be available in the same Library. If you do not have an existing Amazon account at the time of purchase, you can create one from the pop-up window before proceeding to the book download page.

When you’ve successfully linked your Pottermore and Amazon Kindle accounts, you will be asked to name your linked Amazon account on Pottermore. When you are happy with your selection, click the “Save” button. When prompted, click the “Send my book” button to transfer a copy of the title to your Kindle Library.

You will then see a message on Pottermore that indicates that your purchases have been added to your Kindle Library. We will send your purchased book(s) to every Kindle or Kindle app registered to your account. Click on “Go to Amazon” to visit your Kindle Library on the Manage Your Kindle page.
Yes this is a long post but it walks you through the whole process of purchasing the Harry Potter Series and downloading it to your Kindle.
