Oyster, which provides limitless entry to greater than 1 million e-books for $9.ninety five a month, simply introduced it’s including the Harry Potter collection to its library.

To do that, it’s partnering with the web site Pottermore (which has been getting consideration lately for publishing new, Potter-associated tales from writer J.Okay. Rowling).

The partnership covers all seven Harry Potter novels, in addition to Rowling’s three “Hogwarts Library” books — Quidditch By way of the Ages, Incredible Beasts and The place to Discover Them, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard. (Pottermore has additionally partnered with Amazon to deliver the collection to the Kindle Lending Library.)

Whereas including the collection is undeniably an enormous win for Oyster (one which the corporate will certainly be trumpeting, for instance by changing its Reader Themes with Home Themes from the books), it might be value noting that this doesn’t completely break from the service’s concentrate on older, backlist titles — in any case, the ultimate guide in the primary collection got here out again in 2007.

However, my copies, a minimum of, are falling aside from repeated studying, so switching to a digital version is fairly tempting. And whereas the Hogwarts Library titles may appear to be extras for the hardcore followers, Implausible Beasts could also be getting extra consideration with the discharge of a brand new collection of movies, written by Rowling herself.

The announcement follows information earlier this month that Oyster and its competitor Scribd have been each getting titles from Macmillan, the third of the “Huge 5” publishers to signal with these providers.
