Foreign-language Potter e-books on sale
24.04.12 | Charlotte Williams
The e-book editions of J K Rowling's Harry Potter series are now available in French, Italian, German and Spanish (Castilian) for the first time, joining the English-language versions on sale exclusively through the Pottermore site.
The Pottermore shop started selling the English-language editions on 27th March, reporting sales of more than £1m worth of e-books in the first three days, to customers in more than 100 countries.
The e-books are compatible with e-reading devices and platforms including Sony's Reader, Google Play, Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble's Nook.
Pottermore c.e.o. Charlie Redmayne said: "We are proud to be opening the Pottermore shop in French, Italian, German and Spanish so soon after the English version went live.
"This is the next phase in our plan to make the Harry Potter e-books and digital audiobooks available in every language, on every platform and for every device."
