Honestly, at this point Harry Potter news should have it’s own category here at SisterGeeks because there is always something new happening! Considering how many years it has been since the last book and movie were released, I think that is really saying something about the quality of the masterpiece J.K. Rowling created!
Anyways, before I go off on a tangent about how Harry Potter changed the world, let me tell you the great news! It has been announced that a new series of the story is being released by Apple, an “Enhanced Edition.” Each book is currently available for download exlclusively via iBooks. They feature new cover art, moving illustrations, and notes written in by Rowling. I love the idea that Rowling has included her own annotations because don’t we always wonder what the author of a book was thinking when a particular scene happens?? If you are not into the English versions of the novels, no worries because they will be available digitally in French, Spanish, and German on Nov. 9. The cost is $9.99USD each book.
“I’m thrilled to see the Harry Potter books so beautifully realized on iBooks for the digital world,” Rowling said in a statement. “The artwork and animations in these enhanced editions bring the stories alive in a delightful new way.”
Will you be purchasing the new copies of the series? Do you think too many new series have been released? Or is there no such thing as too much Harry Potter?
