Finally, Harry Potter fans can download ebook versions of their favorite series from J.K. Rowling’s new website Pottermore.

J.K. Rowling, via the Pottermore site, announced Tuesday that it will be the only place where people can buy all seven English language versions of the Harry Potter ebooks.

Both Barnes & Noble and Amazon are promoting the offering, but users will be directed to Pottermore in order to make purchases. Although redirecting to another site may seem like a drag for Amazon and Barnes & Noble, it will make owners of Nook and Kindle very happy.

“For years our customers have loved reading Harry Potter books in print, and have made them the best-selling print book series on Amazon.com,” said Amazon Kindle Content Vice President Russ Grandinetti in a press release. “We’re excited that Harry Potter fans worldwide are now able to read J.K. Rowling’s fantastic books on their Kindles and free Kindle reading apps.”

Barnes & Noble also made an announcement, saying that its Nook tablet and ereader customers can have their share of Harry Potter ebooks via the Pottermore Shop.

The first three Harry Potter Books (The Sorcerer’s Stone, The Chamber of Secrets and The Prisoner of Azkaban) costs £5.01, while the rest (The Goblet of Fire, The Order of the Phoenix, The Half-Blood Prince and The Deathly Hallows) costs £6.26. Customers can also buy the Complete Harry Potter Collection for £36.06.
