Baker and Taylor announced today that the entire line of Harry Potter ebooks will be made available by any e-reading software powered by Blio. Not only will this work on your official Blio account, but also their major partners like Toshiba Bookplace and other white-label partners. You will also be able to read the books via the Android and iOS apps that Blio maintains.
“Millions of readers have delighted in J.K. Rowling’s popular wizarding series in its printed format, and now many, many more are poised to discover that literary magic in the electronic version through Blio,” said Bob Nelson, president of Baker & Taylor’s Digital Group. “As Baker & Taylor expands the distribution channels for ebook content, we are always striving to bring the best content to our customers. Our agreement with Pottermore is just another example of our mission to provide the complete package – an excellent ecommerce store, with the best content, and a great ereader to consume that content. ”
“We are very excited to have Baker & Taylor’s ebook platform integrated into Pottermore. The Blio ereader is an important and growing player in the ebook retail space – adding new distribution channels for the Harry Potter content with device manufacturers, mobile carriers and retailers,” said Charlie Redmayne, CEO of Pottermore.
