'Harry Potter' joining Amazon Kindle library


The online retail giant said on June 19, the e-book editions of /*J.K. Rowling*/'s seven /*Potter*/ books will become part of the Kindle service available to Amazon Prime subscribers.

Once a month, members can download a book for free from the library, which boasts more than 145,000 books.

Rowling only recently permitted e-books of the Potter series and has been offering them through her own website, Pottermore.com. The e-books on the Kindle will be available in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish.

Financial terms were not disclosed for Amazon.com's "licensing agreement" with Rowling.
