Harry Potter Books

Rochelle September 15, 2015 @ 3:44PM

June 30, 1997 was a historic day that almost no one took notice of. It wasn't until a year or more later that the significance of this date became clear: It was the day the first Harry Potter book was published.

J.K. Rowling published a total of seven books from 1997 to 2007 but that was not the end for Harry and his friends. As of this writing those seven books have sold around 450 million copies, making them one of the best selling series of all times!

Even more impressive is the fact that the last four books set records for becoming the fastest selling books in history. Would you believe that the last book,
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, sold more than 11 million copies within 24 hours of being released to the public? I bought one of those 11 million books the night the book was released, but I'll save the details of that night for another post.

The art and editions have changed a bit since their original publication. For example, the early editions of the hard cover books have art by
Mary GrandPré and paperback editions with were updated in 2014 with art by Johnny Duddle.

The two most common methods used for reading the books are physical books or digital eBooks, both of which I have included below. I have gone a bit further and listed each book individually and in sets, so you can buy just the books you need or want or buy them all.

Kindle Editions

There are two ways to get Kindle eBook versions of the Harry Potter stories. The first is at Pottermore where you can buy them. They are available for sale individually and in sets. You can buy them at Pottermore here.

The second method is to get them for free at Amazon for anyone who has an Amazon Prime account. Amazon Prime is a membership program offered by Amazon. Most people join Amazon Prime because of the free two-day shipping that they get but there are a lot more perks than just two-day shipping. One of them is free access to over 500,000 books including all seven
Harry Potter books. Amazon even gives you the opportunity to try it for free for a full 30 days! You can learn more about the benefits of Amazon Prime here.

Are you already a member of Amazon Prime?
Then you can download any of the seven books here.
