Amazon gets Harry Potter e-books for Kindles

(Reuters) - Amazon.com Inc said on Tuesday that e-book versions of the Harry Potter hit series by J.K. Rowling are available to read on the company’s Kindle e-readers and Kindle Fire tablet.

Amazon said it struck a distribution deal with J.K. Rowling’s new website and e-book store, called the Pottermore Shop.

Amazon customers can search for the Harry Potter e-books in the company’s Kindle Store, but will be directed to the Pottermore Shop to buy them and add them to their Kindle library, the company said.

Foreign-language versions of the Harry Potter e-books will be available through Kindle Stores worldwide in coming weeks, Amazon added.
