With the holiday season coming up, the website devoted to Harry Potter is ready. Pottermore is the only place in the world where you can buy the digital versions of the entire Harry Potter saga and the official off-shoots. Pottermore has announced today that the site is launching a new Gifting service, that will allow you to buy the ebooks and have them sent to a lucky recipient.
Pottermore has its new service located at shop.pottermore.com. You can customize a personal message for the recipient and specify the delivery date. There are options to send it out up to six months in advance. This applies to both ebooks and the audiobook versions of Harry Potter. The digital editions can be read on most e-readers and tablets, so you are good to go.
This is the very first year that the Harry Potter digital library is available to users during the holiday season. It will be very interesting to track the sales statistics to see if people are taking advantage of the gifting service.
